Poor thing :( His scales look weird, too. Is he pineconed? They say black is ammonia burns healing. Odd since there was no ammonia? At least he's turned the right way now. Wishing him a quick recovery. I had been meaning to ask how they have been doing.

He is missing some scales and some are more silver than orange. No pineconing. This fish is a complete goon who can't see very well and smashed into everything and gets stuck inside anything possile. I have taken steps to make sure he can no longer get stuck in things

There is another piece of tail on the bottom. It looks like it's from Mango the Oranda. Also the portion of tail with the black around the outer edge looks like it is going to fall off. It's just hanging limp.

At this point, it appears they have a bacterial infection.  The metromeds should help, but I'd like to also tackle the fin problem with salt dips.  Start with 1% salt.  Dip each of the fish, and record which ones lasted 5 minutes.  Report this information.

 

The next day, give any fish that lasted 5 minutes in 1% salt a dip in 2% salt.  Repeat the 1% dip for the others.

 

The next day, dip again, "promoting" any fish that lasted 5 minutes to the next higher concentration.

Im having trouble with this. Some of the fish are upside down in their aquarium and go updide down in the salt dip almost right away. Some seem to do ok. The white tamasaba looks to be in the beginning stages of pineconing

I would just get a min of 50pp or I like is the 500ppm dont need as many drops in there :)
