When did you start noticing the symptoms? Three days ago
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Bettafix and Ich/Fungus meds
Does your fish have any history of being ill? He had clamp fin from being cold a couple weeks ago, but no sickness.
How old is your fish (approximately)? 5 months?
I did a 100% water change, washed all of Calcipher's rocks, plastic plants and his bamboo shoots, acclimated him normally, and put a couple drops of Bettafix in to ease any stress from water changing. The next day he had what looked like fungus, or maybe ich, on his side, so we upped the bettafix and put in an ich/fungus treatment. I did another water change yesterday and he looks near death today, lethargic and floaty. The patch is larger and he has a small one on the other side. In the large one it looks like his scales are inflamed or rotting off :(
Any suggestions? Treatments? I have no idea what could have happened, could his bamboo be causing this (which has been in his tank, and only his tank, the whole time)?
