Thank you all for your advice
I couldn't find Kanaplex in local pet stores, even ''specialized'' fish stores.
Trying to find it online.
I am now worried about my own health
because I have 4 or 5 scratches on my hands and I didn't use gloves yesterday
--- I wanted to remove all the plants, rocks and gravel out of his aquarium to wash them and my hands were in the water for like 20 minutes!!
I ended up putting everything back in the tank,not knowing what product to use.
?? Will I be able to use the tank if I want to buy another fish???? I am reading an article right now and they are saying that you have to get rid of the tank, plants, gravel, filter, etc, because the disease is highly contagious and there is no cleaner that can get rid of this disease, even bleach can't.
About my fish:
This morning, the ''silver'' patch on his fin is now covering part of his belly. I can see it's slowly eating him. It's like the flesh-eating disease.
He seems to be having some difficulties swimming. His entire body his dark grey, except for his lower jaw, which is white/grey, and the silver patch on his fin and belly.
The part of his fin that was covered with this silver thing yesterday is now brown/black.
He did eat this morning, but not much and he's having trouble swallowing I think. He could not eat pellets, so I gave him flakes and he took a few bites then turned away.
I am convinced that this is the same disease. It is sad to know that he is suffering and there is nothing I ca do to help him.
If you have any suggestions on how I can help him (is there some kind of pain medecine I could give him for his last few hours/days??!)
how I can clean the tank and what to do so I don't get sick, I'd appreciate it.
Thank you all for your help.
I hope next time I am posting a picture on this forum, it's a picture of a healthy, happy fish. Maybe Edward-Henry the Second.
