So I'm basically worried about my new fish in QT, when I got her she appeared and acted healthy but after 2 weeks and on her second round of Kusuri she is slow and has like a white membrane over the sides of her body that can only be seen at a certain angle, I'd post a picture but tapatalk won't let me for some reason..any ideas what might be wrong with her anyone?
