Have you been doing water changes? Best of luck! Hopefully the rest of the fish will be ok.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

I did a 50% water change. Vacuumed 75% of the gravel completely. I didn't do all of the gravel because I was afraid of disturbing the bacteria too much. I added more salt. This morning when I turned on the light he swam right up to the top for food. I was shocked to see that its about 50% healed. The red around the white is gone and half of the white is gone. I was worried that it would be spreading. Other fish seem to be in perfect condition. I don't know if its from having the light off all the time or the sale but something is working. Meds will be here tomorrow morning. I'm hoping that he'll make it. I'm glad I ignored my mothers advise of just flushing him. I've only lost one fish and would like to keep loses to a minumum. I really do apprecaite your help so much littlefizz! Thanks :)

No problem :) I'm glad to hear he has perked up...

I don't think that is would go away by itself... Do you think maybe it is possible that he injured himself of the heater or something in the tank?

I know this post is a bit dated, but does your cat(s) put thier paws in the tank ?
If so, thats a big no no.
