The thing fell off of him, but no changes so far. How often and how much should I be doing water changes?

Could you go into more detail about the thing that fell off of him? I might just now remember, but how big is his tank, and is it heated?

My tank is five gallons and heated. Its at 78 degrees Fahrenheit. It was as long as his ventral fins and skinny. It seemed like poo but it stuck there for quite a while.

It was white one the bottom part but not at the top. It was stringy and between his ventral fins. For some reason today I tried to give him food and he acted as if he didn't see it. I will try again and update tomorrow.

Okay, sounds like the anti-parasitic treatment worked. Definately try feeding him again tomorrow :)

I am not sure if I missed it or it came back but the stringy thing is back and it is not white. He looks so bad. He swims around normally and is active, but that about all that is normal about him.
