Yeah I dont like this day much. After thinking things were improving, I actually don’t think they are. I can’t understand why the fish is still flicking. Water changes are every day, all water tests show nothing! But today he’s managed to pull off two big scales and he looks bad. I’m cleaning the qt out hoping it will run just under where the crack is. And if he’s still like this tomorrow, I think the best thing would be to put him in there on his own for a bit and add salt. At least it might ease his stress and help his wounds heal. He is still eating, but when I fed them today he started flicking right away and then decided to try and launch himself out the water. Something in there he just really doesn’t like. And I can’t work out what it is.

I just don’t know what else to do. If my pond expert says there are no parasites in there, then what has happened to make this one fish go bonkers?

Lost soul at the moment.
