R.I.P Jayhawk :( I noticed yesterday he wasn't his active self, and this morning he was lying motionless on the bottom of his bowl. Last night he still ate perfectly fine he was just really calm where as normally he is super hyper. I had him in a heated room and the bowl temp was a steady 77, which is a little cool but should have been okay. The water was RO plus stress coat plus aquarium salt. I feel like such a terrible fish owner.. I should have gone with the tetracycline I had lying around but I was afraid it would be too harsh on him. :(( I did notice this morning the tips of his fins seemed a little.. fuzzy.. His fins continued to disappear but I thought he was just biting because I actually saw him go for them once and he was eating perfectly fine.
His tank should have finished cycling this week.. I don't know if it would have made a difference or not :( I know he was stressed but I didn't know if the diseased caused the stress or the stress caused the disease :( I feel like maybe he never fully recovered.
