    Also his breathing is still a little fast but has definitely slowed a lot from yesterday so I believe his gills are clearing.

    Those sores look horrible but you definitely seem to be on the right track Keep doing what you are doing. If breathing is improving you defInetely improved your odds. "You the man and fish"

    Sounds like he's improving, swimming and being active like that is a really good sign for a tang. We all love are fish so kudos for being a fighter like your fish, I commend you on that. On a side note, do they make painkillers for fish? Ouch.

    good news on the updates. I'm afraid I don't know about the skin. I like the name and we all know Rick is a fighter too :)
