just want to check, did your fish has that pre-cut dorsal fin when you got it?
it was painful and very stressful for the fish...

btw, those white edges of the fins are new membrane, sign of growing...

I think I got him like that it was a week ago, but do you think he looks okay? Like he's healing up pretty good?

Hello and welcome to OFL. Poor fella looks like he has been subject to less than ideal care. Besides the fin clip, I see the possible beginning of some hith. Bit of cratering on the forehead. Keep his water pristine, offer a high quality diet and he should greatly improve. Can you give a little detail on the tank? Size and filtration? Other fish?


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Your fish has ich. Raise the temperature to 87F , no more than 1 degree every 2 hours, and keep it at that temp for 3 weeks. Next put 3 tablespoons of salt per 5 gallons. Add the total dosage over a 48 hour period. Maintain salt for 3 weeks.

Is the tank cycled?
