Help! My Threadfin rainbow looks like it may have fin rot or ich!
I came home today and checked up on my fish when I saw my threadfin rainbow looking very pale, along with what I through was EXTREMELEY nipped fins, all though I now thing it may be fin rot.
He is in a 10 gallon aquarium.
I do 33% water change once a week
I feed him twice a day (enough for him to eat in 2minutes)
If it is ich or fin rot what should I do.
I tried to take a good picture of him, but he cant stop moving so this is the best picture I could take

Can't really see, you'll need a closer pic. Ich looks like salt sprinkled on the body and/or fins. As for the tail, again, can't see it very well but is it possible that he was nipped?

yes it was very possible he got nipped. He had been in some fights, but now it looks like he is battiling the flow of the aquarium, its weird because he has never done that before. he is like swimming upside down, could it swimmers bladder?

He won't be well if he's got Ich, I think that's the more likely cause.
