    This is what's left of my angelfish, thanks to my electric yellow lab. I thought they would get along because they're all young. Is there anything I could do to help him?

    So sorry that happened to the poor thing!

    move him to his own quarantine tank, and clean water, clean water, clean water. Also possibly add pimafix or melafix each day to aid with healing.

    my butterfly finned black moor was completely shredded and could barely swim, and with water changes and melafix, most of his fins filled out and healed and he recovered... It unfortunately shortened his life, and he died recently. I hope the stress won't cause the same for you.

    i do wish you the best!

    A combo of Pimafix and Melafix works very well on damaged fins. It is sort of the fish equivalent of Neosporin on cuts/scrapes for us humans. I would dose this for a week and separate him if possible.

    Around a year and a half, so he was 5 1/2 years old. :)
