    I would do a 10 day salt 2tsp/gal and tannin treatment along with partial water changes

    I currently have him in a 1 gallon QT tank. He's responding to the salt, as far as I can see though there's only a few sporadic black marks between some of his scales and the slime stuff though, should I keep treating him with just that?

    Excessive slime coat is usually a sign of an irritant of some type-when it is in one area-usually that can mean a parasite or injury. Can you see anything on that area in question. I would QT in a small container and premixed the treatment water-easier to observe and treat this way. You can float the QT in the heated tank if needed.

    I'm sorry to bother you, but I need help! Yesterday I was looking at my boy, Asura, and noticed a few random patches of slime-looking stuff all along his tail. In the places the slime was, the tail was clamped too (as in, where it was on the edges.) By the suggestion of one of the other members, I did a 50% water change and added some salt to try and prevent it from spreading. However, today the weird slime is ALL OVER his poor tail and forcing it into a clamped position. It's kinda like a milky white and it's ONLY on his tail for whatever reason. Could you tell what this could possibly be, please? ):
