    Oh that makes more sense. Sounds very similar to my situation.

    Just a question, please don't take any offense from it, but how do you know so much about illnesses if you only have three fish?

    Yeah they have been curled. I'm not sure how hard my tap water is, though. I saw that they have water hardness tests at my Walmart near the outdoor pool section o.0 he's less active than when I got him but I'm 99% sure it's because of his vision. He's starting to get a little more confident exploring on his own.

    In certain lighting his head looks kinda lighter colored. He's always been a more brownish color near his head. I have older pictures of him in my albums... He's also had that light brown color on his gills and lighter spots as well... But just on his gills. Now that lighter color seems to cover his whole face at times in certain lighting. He usually looks darker when I first turn on his lights.

    The CT.. Idk. Maybe he somehow broke off the ends of those rays when he went blind on his decorations or something.. They don't have any black edges though, or white. The ends there were white before they got shortened. He's also had the bent and curled rays since I got him. Also, on his anal fin near his caudal fin, there is a ray or two that looks really short and maybe a little frayed? He's also had that since I got him and they haven't grown back out. I have a picture of him the day I got him in my albums when he was still in his cup.

    This is irrelevant but here you can see his glowy red eye. Idk if this has anything to do with him being blind? haha.

    This is the best picture I could get of DaBaDee.

    Well idk what it is. It may just be his coloring. But it looks a little off to me and I can only really see it in certain lighting. He doesn't have any white or gold specks under a flashlight. I check them both with a flashlight daily, lol. I can see it in his normal tank lighting, usually when he is swimming downwards for some reason o.0
    The CT isn't acting differently but I can definitely tell that a few of the rays on his caudal fin are shorter than the rest. I think the lighter colored tips, although they look kind of white or clear, may actually be a very light blue. He's been marbling and changing colors on me all over the place! But the tips don't look wispy... I think it's just his coloring but I could be wrong.

    Edit: my boyfriend is playing a game on my computer so I have to wait until he is done.

    Hey there. As soon as I can get to a computer I have a few picture I would like you to look at (better quality than my phone pictures, lol). My VTs strange lighter colored head and my CTs fins. Remember how the tips of his fins were lighter colored in that video? Now it looks to me like a few of his tail rays have been broke off :/

    Well I've had my VT for a year, so it's the only logical thing I can think of, lol.

    I haven't fed him any bloodworms since he got sick.. I tried feeding my CT just one but he didn't eat it. Mostly because he was bloated. I don't know how he got the parasites but I sure hope I can get rid of them. Maybe my CT had some when I got him and I somehow got them into his tank? They can lay dormant, right?
