Hi! Valentino has a fraying caudal fin with whitening at the end. It is only in one area but his veins are dialated. I have been doing salt dips instead of leaving salt in the tank due to val having dropsy previously. He has never relapsed since the original time. I have not cleaned my filters in 5 months, that may be part of the problem. I also added a large plastic hollow log to the tank about 2-3 weeks ago. It has an airstone inside though. Marmalade is not having any problems though other than boyancy problems, but he has always been like that. I will include pics in a sec.
