1~What type of fish is afflicted? In addition, please describe what is wrong with the fish to the best of your ability (i.e. cotton like growth, bloated, etc.).
Siamese shark has ich, and is on a day 2 out of a 3 day treatment with esha exit, and his white spot doesnt seem to be getting much better. Also i hve just noticed his tail fin has been eaten away and has a blood streak on it. So i dont no if this is a battle wound or is this fin rot?, as all his other fins seem to be fine.

pH - 7.5

Water changed about 9days ago, 20-25% removed
7~How long have you had the fish? If the fish is new, how did you acclimate it/them? ive had the fish about 1mnth, acclimitised by fish and bad placed in the water for 30mins, then adding some water to the bag for 30mins then release.
8~Have you added anything new to the tank--decor, new dechlorinator, new substrate, etc.? no
