does his wound look fuzzy? if so, i'd PM Oldfishlady. .___. it could be bacteria. i'm not that good about giving bacteria advice.

no, 100% water changes won't decrease the effectiveness. just replace the tea bag after every one. you'll go through alot of tea bags, but it's worth it.

after seeing those, he WAS fought, imo.

Wow, what a fighter! I definitely believe you are on the right track! Aquarium salt is supposed to help open wounds! But with super clean water, the tea, yummy food, etc, he might pull through! I hope he does, because aside from the wound and his fins, he looks strongm like a fighter!

Maybe it's just me, but I think with your loving care & ultra clean water he's going to make it!!! At least I sure hope so!

Is he still hanging in there? I'm not an expert, but it doesn't really look like fin rot to me; it looks more like it was bitten off, no way to know whether it was by him or by another fish. Definitely keep up with the frequent water changes to prevent fin rot. Keep his temp around 77-78 F; bacteria flourish in warmer water.

You can still use IAL or decaf green tea with 100% water changes. I just fill up my clean water bucket right after each water change, add conditioner and IAL, and let it sit out 24 hrs until I'm ready for the next change. I also keep one or two leaves in the tank as well, so they will continue to leech the tannins into the water.

Good luck!

I noticed this morning he had a little bit of "fuzz" on his sides so I upped the aquarium salt to 1 1/2 tsp. and started him on fungus clear.It is not as noticeable tonight though? I am hoping it isn't columnaris or something.

anyways, here is a little video I took of him. (nevermind the polly-pocket music...my nephew was jamming out to that song)

Awwww! Well, aside from the torn fins, he looks fantastic! He's acting so healthy and spunky, and it already looks like there is a bit of growth. Sure hope he makes it.
