Does it look like cotton, or like the stuffing has been pulled out?

Hmmm. Just keep an eye on it, and let us know if you see any changes.

Once my Guppy had some unidentified disease, and I thought she would die before I knew what was wrong. But after a few salt baths, she was perfectly fine. So, tell your friend to try a few salt baths. They're sort of a natural cure for many diseases. Put the fish in, say, a gallon of water with several Tbsp of aquarium salt (Not table salt), and leave him in there until a) he shows signs of distress--having trouble staying upright, or b) the fish has been happily swimming around in there for waaaay too long (letter b will probably end up happening as Livebearers love salt). Add more salt the next time in the case of letter b. See if he gets better after several salt baths.
