hi all, I posted a couple dayz ago on here about my sick loach. Unfortanantly, he isn't doin any better. He still isnt eating, is being antisocial, usually he will find a spot and stay there for hours. I've since noticed that his stomach area isn't looking right. His chest area looks swollen, and his stomach is sinking in. His eyes look like he has cataracts, even though he is only a baby. I've been using melafix, and rid ich, hoping that if it doesn't help him, then maybe it will keep whatever it is from spreading to my other fish. Unfortanantly I don't have a quarantine tank. Anyone have any ideas as to whats wrong with him??
