Got the salt today and gave him a salt bath, he was quite difficult to catch even though he’s stressed. :(

Used a 3% solution and got him in the bowl, but he started to freak out big time even more, after 10 mins started to roll over on his side. So we had to put him back in the pond. Qt varies too much in Ph, so he’s back where he started, probably even more stressed from being caught.

He was swimming around, but now he’s still back to flicking himself silly off the sides of the pond. Paul is convinced he’s going to die, as he’s never seen a white fish so red before. I’m hoping that the salt has at least eased the bad cuts and missing scales.

Fingers crossed hey, all we can do.

I wonder how long it took him to settle in at ACMI?
