In reference to how sick he was. I thought i had posted pics long ago but maybe it was another site or have been deleted.
Just how sick he was. He got this bad over about 5 days i think based on the picture dates.
He got alittle better right after all the meds and constant daily huge water changes. My water was always clear and never had issues, maybe it was the nitrates and or the goldfish. Immediately the new tank was being worked on and the pics above when he is eatting the carrot and such were in the new tank.
On his head where the damage was never fully healed but he seems to have been perfectly fine threw it.
I moved him recently with a towel and a huge rubbermaid contained into the tank. Still wish it could be bigger but he swims and moves around without a issue. He is too big though.
