I want to say either a giant parasite or an infected lesion from any number of diseases. If he no longer has the disease that caused the lesion, that's good. Aquarium salt should help. But if he still has cottonwool or mouth rot, he might need more than AQ salt. And there's the problem. Seriously, I might send you a couple packs of Maracyn and General Cure to have on hand.

I wish you could! But it would be too expensive to ship. I heard from someone that there is a shop in Crawford market that has various medicines.. Its a grey market though, so I don't even know if they'll be original. I'm not sure if its cotton mouth, most sites say that is grey or off-white.. There is a parasite that causes this but its life cycle is too complex for it to be living on a fish in a bowl for too long. Mouth rot, I don't know but AQ salt seems to be good for that.. Sigh.. I'll try and get pics today..

It would help. Poor guy. Is he pretty skinny, like he hasn't been eating?

No he seems to be eating well.. I'll have to go and take a good look today. This guy is only open after 6pm so its hard to judge a fish in the dark X(

Yeah. From the sounds of it, he should stick with that job and leave the fish alone.

Definitely -_- apparently the nice lfs guy I told you about who loves his fish helped him get his business started, I wonder if he knows how he keeps the poor things :(

If he did he should be weeping by now for the sadness of it. You know you're doomed if you ever set foot in the states. A veiltail here costs maybe $5 or 230 or so rupees there. You'll have so many bettas . . .
