Powder Blue Tang in trouble... need help!!!
I've got a powder blue tang that I've had for several years, today I was feeding fish and while watching my powder blue, he/she did even eat as much as usual which was huge surprise.
After watching him/her for a while, I realized there's a bit of cotton sticking out of it's bum. It looks very distressed, really trying to poop and not being its happy-go-lucky attitude it ussally to have.
Not only that - it's got a little bit of fin rot on the bottom fin and on a little bit on the back fin near its bum. I'm gathering it's from stress.
I've now put it into QT and treating Melafix, I did try to pull out the cotton a little to help, I didn't pull hard or anything but it's in there tight.
Is there anything anyone can think of to help my poor fish?
