One quick question: do I need to change his water before giving him another dose of antibiotics tomorrow? I know enough not to add more salt until changing the water.

He's in his own bowl (he usually lives at my parents' house but is staying with me for a while) and so I don't have to worry so much about him being contagious.

Thank you to everyone! I hope he pulls through...

PJ,

Check the instructions on both antibiotics as to water changes.

And you're right, adding more salt to the water he's in now would poison him.
New water = new salt.

How's your little guy doing?

Am I the only one that thinks it is mold? I also think it might be that disease Here Fishy Fishy talked about.

Day 3 of antibiotics and my brother says Sparky actually ate some of his food today! He seems to be doing much better: two more days of treatment to go.

Thanks to everyone for their help: the fuzzy stuff is gone and he's eating again. He's still pretty lethargic, but he's always been a lazy fish.

Thanks again!
