I'm not sure honestly. I know there's more of the white than there was yesterday, but for all I know it just means it grew more. I didn't exactly measure or anything, you know? I guess all I can do in that case is watch him and see if it moves higher up the fin or not.

Like I said, he is looking better all the time, it would make sense for his fins to be growing. At least the stress coat can't hurt, and I'll have the salt around for later if it turns out I do need it.

Thank you so much for all your advice, by the way. My little fishy's recovery is largely thanks to you. :)

If you can take a pic of his fins, I can probably tell if it's new growth or not. If it's new fin growth, it won't move higher but it will look like it did, just because it's growing. New growth can come in very fast, it's pretty amazing. My guess is that's what you're seeing because he's acting healthier.

As long as the white stuff doesn't look fuzzy and it isn't advancing rapidly, like within hours, I'd say hold off on any medication and just keep the water clean.

And you're welcome. I'm very happy to help you out. :)
