Hi Rob, I’m real sorry to hear this. I’m glad he was doing well for some time but I know how disappointing it is when things turn again. If you still have the Indian almond leaves, definitely use those. Float or tea. I know you already know all my typical advice so it’s all the same with increased wc, leaves or tea, maybe keep his tank light out or dimmed if you can. I see the Kordons bottle so that’s great you’re using it.Thank you for checking in. Things had been going well, trending in the right direction but over the past couple of weeks have taken a turn for the worse. See photos. The rear fin is curled and the main one underneath is torn. We dont know what happened. He barely can swim but is still eating. We are going to do some frequent water changes ASAP. Hope we can save him. View attachment 1036462

When you say he can barely swim, is he mainly hanging out at the surface or bottom of the tank. Have you noticed any he’s fighting to swim? Like with SBD?
Remind me, did you go through a round of Kanaplex or Furan2 with help from @Veloran?
Also, how is Curly’s attitude? Does he seem depressed? Is he responsive to you, or sort of hiding from you? How is his breathing? Does it seem labored? I know that was an issue before.
I’m hoping someone can offer some insight on this but I notice his eye looks cloudy… possibly. Did you notice this or is it just the pic quality? It might be due to age but I’m wondering if it could be an indication of another illness.
If you’d like to list your parameters, that would be great, too. Or any other details you think are important. Curly is a true fighter.
