I am definitely gonna need some help with this little one please! Fungus everywhere on the poor thing, but he was just so cute I couldn't walk away. I watched him for a good 20 minutes.

I named him Shroom

His set up is a 10 gallon with an aquaclear 50 on low, heater set to 75 degrees, and an air stone. I currently have him in .1% salt. Is there anything else I should be doing other than raising it to .3% in the meantime?

Raise it to .3%, definitely, and I'd recommend methylene blue as the safest fungus inhibitor. That plus extraordinarily clean water and the aforementioned salt should help quickly if it is indeed fungal in nature.

Begin prazi once the fungus is cleared :)

I pulled a black moor from a crappy tank along with two more fish, Shembje and Commander. Shembje has a crooked jaw and had it when I got her, but is growing well and seems healthy and Commander has been totally healthy, as well and growing too. Shadow, the moor seemed fine and one day - sudden death out of nowhere.

I don't know :donthit: I've been at college all day. I'll be home in about 30 minutes and I'll take a look at the little bugger. I added the meth blue before I left though :)

My very first serious fancy goldfish where I had like a 10 gallon tank was with a black moor. I had that fish for I think 3 years. After that I couldn't keep one alive :(

Swimming around :) he wasn't wanting to swim much at all when he was in the stores tank. He was just kinda at the bottom breathing. No clamping or anything either. I'm raising to .2% salt now

Until a good week after the last visible fungus. It won't hurt a thing and keeping that up with the salt is a very good prophylactic quarantine treatment as you're letting him acclimate. There is no big rush on the prazi in a fish nor showing any concerning symptoms.
