Jack Dempsey still on it's side. Looking moldy?

Well, you'll know the situation if you read my previous thread.


He's still on his side. With white, mould like growths appearing on him. Really, he looks like he's been dead for a week. Still breating alright, though his gills looks like their getting covered over by a mucus?

Started a treatment for ulcers/rot/etc. Is that the right thing to do?

Should I just put him down? Doesn't look like it would be fun, but I'm hoping for a recovery. I figure, it's still alive now, so it may well make it?

What medication are you using?
Can you post a picture of the fish?
Also, test your water for ammonia and nitrites, post your results.
