This morning I noticed Batman sitting at the bottom of his tank. I freaked out! tapped the side and he didn't move! after a while he finally moved and I noticed his fins were real red and he was doing a twitchy swim and only using one of his pectoral fins. He also had a little bit of white fuzz slime stringy thing hanging from his top fin. I gave him a salt bath and did a 100% water change. (the white stuff fell off in the water while I was giving him a salt bath) This afternoon he is still doing the twitchy swimming and only using one pectoral fin.
What else can I do?
I feel like he is dieing and I feel awful ...I don't know what to do or what I am doing wrong..
