1525146065063730209890.jpg Hi I just went into my favorite local fish store and was looking at fish when i saw a channel catfish in a tank full of cichlids and noticed his fins were all torn up and entire tail fin was missing they were biting him and just terrorizing him but he was still posted for sale and i ased if they knew about it they said yes so i went to talk to owner and convinced him to let me have him in hope of saving the fish. Right now he is isolated in a 75 gallon tank because i just upgraded for my other big fish. He is swimming ok and is able to catch small feeders and eat flake food but i need ideas on how to help him heal or on how to make his death if i cant save him less stressful?

Clean pristine water. That will help promote growth. But you will need to keep an eye out for any infections.
