Chi Li is feeling much better

Well, I think he is continuing to do much better. He made sort of a bubble nest today. he is eating like crazy, and seems to be much happier. His colors are getting brighter too. So I am hoping we are past the bad start part and on to the good living part. :)

Holy belly, batman! Unless that was right after a big meal, hold off on feeding so much, he's a little bloated! :P Chunker! <3

I'm so glad Chi Li is doing better. He certainly looks peppier than in your first pics. It'll take a while, though, for his little fins to regain their former glory. What a cutie.

lol..yeah that pic was after he ate. He is eating really well as you can tell.

I have a question though. I am still doing the salt water, do you think I should stop them now, or continue with them for the ten days. I know his fins are going to take a long time to heal. I can't wait to see what he really looks like when he is all healthy again.

Do it until you've done it for 7-10 days, that way you can help knock out whatever was ailing him. After that, discontinue but keep up with more-frequent-than-normal water changes, leaving the filter off to promote fin regrowth!

Thank you for the quick response.:) I keep doing the salt then for another few days. Do you all think that his fins will grow back in fully one day? I would love to see him fully colored and with all his fins someday. BTW, do you all think he is a crowntail? There wasn't any label on his cup when I got him. I am thinking that is what he is, but I am not sure because his fins are so badly damaged.

I agree with the salt treatment, keep it up a little longer - his fins are still clamped.
Yes his fins will start to grow as soon as he is better. But it may take time for them to fully recover.
IMO He looks like a cambodian CT.

I'm not good with tail types, but I think he's a CT, or one heck of a tail/fin biter :P
