Kind of new and desperate to try and save my rasbora who is sick.
A week ago I had a cory with the same problem but in a different tank . . . but I didn't tank any pictures of that.
This time I'm determined to figure exactly what is going on. Is it a fungus? Is it being over fed? What's going on.
Here's a random note though. The first picture is of him before I grabbed him with the net. He was having a hard time staying right side up, so I grabbed him with the net. After I grabbed him with the net, the big fuzz came off and he started to swim normally, but his rear end seemed to be open. Looks painful, but he swam normally after the fuzz fell off. I looked in the net, and saw there was something in it. I took a pic of it and hopefully can attach it too.
Both tanks have been up and running for a long while now. 1.5 years plus . .

Any who ~ take a look and let me know please.
