Axl has a white cottony, fluffy substance on his tail. noticed it this morning during a water change. he has moved around the tank a bit more today he spent some time at the bottom. I cant get anything to help him because theres a load of public holidays and nothings open >.< plus when i get out from work the shops are closed anyway, so i cant get anything till thursday and by then it might be too late!
