Someone please help my poor little guy Alpha is sick and I don't know what he is sick with or how to treat him. I've read the disease sticky and it sounds like he has symptoms of multiple things so any help diagnosing him would be greatly appreciated.
He has pin sized holes on his fins 1 on his dorsal fin, 1 on his caudal fin towards his caudal peduncle and 1 on his anal fin. He also has some weird knot like bump on his left ventral fin and also his his ventral fin tips have been whitening.
He is turning grey fast and the top of his head has turned red with grey spots.
Earlier today I noticed I could just make out horizontal lines on his sides.
His fins appear to be deteriorating as they seem to me to be getting smaller and more jagged on the tips.
He darts around back and forth frantically on the glass but has not been rubbing on any of the tank decorations.
What is wrong with him and what do I need to get to make my little guy healthy again? Is there something at petco or petsmart I can get to treat him? Also is whatever he has contagious do I treat the whole tank or QT him and treat him alone?
He was QT-ed but the QT tank didn't have a heater so he ultimately got worse so I had to put him in the heated tank again
