I noticed this morning my poor buddy has a split tube.
I am currently treating my 37g with Lifeguard after noticing my cory had what may be fin rot and my danio had a white spot on his lip (I don't understand how the tank got any bacterial anything, water parameters have been perfect for two straight months and still are, algae could be better but it's not awful). Anyway, I put the 2 assassin snails I could find into a newly bought 1.6g quarantine tank. I put live bacteria in to jumpstart the cycle. There is sand for substrate, a tiny heater and tiny filter. Parameters are
Nitrate-0 (I know that's not great...I'll try more bacteria)
Nitrite-0
Chlorine-0
GH- 150ish
KH-very low
PH- mid 6s
The other guy is half in half out of the water on the filter.
There was one snail in there to eat and I threw some fish flakes in there this AM.
I feel terrible for him, what can I do? His tube opens up flat, but I couldn't wait all morning for him to do it again, but in the pic you can see the line of his split.

I don't know where the Fish Disease form is :( I clicked it and it just takes me to all of the fish diseases. I thought it would be safe to assume ammonia is zero if Nitrites are 0. I never understood that. I honestly didn't check ammonia, I will when I get home.
Where do I find the Fish Disease form?
