So out of know where my happy go lucky HM that I have posted pictures about has fallen very ill.
Now since the day I got him he had always had rapid gill movement. Like it was hard for him to swim around do to heavy fins. Even so he always ate, swam around, flared and would take a short break on a plant then do it all over again. He was housed in a divided 10 gallon that is about 80`F and the other two males that are in there are totally fine.
I looked him over and there is nothing on his body. I new he was not feeling well when he didn't rush for his food and just laid at the bottom kinda sideways. He was still breathing heavy too.
Right now he has been in a 1gal with aquarium salt and Betta SPA conditioner. Water temp is about 78`F. He gets fresh water every day. Its been close to a week now and his rapid breathing has become very slow. For being white I can tell he has gotten more pail cause his blue marbling is hard to see now. He did eat 3 small frozen bloodworms from me last night, but that is all. He just lays on the heater and takes gulps of air now and then. Once in a while during a water change I will see some floating slime looking stuff on the bottom of the tank. I don't know is its loose slime coat or poop.
Andy help would be great to hear. Its hard seeing him go more down hill every day
