I would add an extra air stone as higher temperatures will mean theirs less desolved oxygen in the tank and higher levels of desolved oxygen have been proven to aid in a  fish's recovery

Colu to the rescue! BluRay is doing much better! I didn't even realize my air pump was on the fritz till you mentioned adding another. Still a little recovering to go, but so much happier! Comes out and gives me kisses again!

Anchor worms . Lernaea can be seen with the naked eye on your fish symptoms include flashing localised redness inflammation on the body of the fish white or red worms in the wound breathing difficulty  the most effective treatment is potassium permanganate bath dosage 5mg/Liter for 30 minute or 100mg/Liter for 5-10 minutes second bath 1g/Liter for 10-40 seconds or an indefinite bath 2mg/Liter  if you can't get potassium permanganate water life parazin p active ingredient is Diflubenzuron or Esha alx active is Lufenuron effective against anchor worms  aquarium salt baths are effective against some species of anchor worms 1table spoon for 1gallon for no more than 15 minutes 2-3 times a day or you can keep high levels of salt   in your tank for up to thirty days as the life cycle is between 18 and 28 days and high levels of salt stop anchor worm eggs from developing   if you have fish that are sensitive salt  I would recommend  treating with  potassium permanganate bath once a week as over use can burn gill tissue hikari has a product called cyropro for treating anchor worms I don't no how effective it is if you feel up to it you can manually remove anchor worms with tweezers this can cause tissue damage1839457148_Screenshot_20210830-1741512.png.87335b320c5ac05cdda12dc609a4e3f5.png1811581291_Screenshot_20210830-1740422.png.1fef687348f8c1a533208332dd4a45a5.png

Curious to know if these can grow on decor? And in a tank without fish at all. Have something that looks similar that has grown all over a piece of driftwood in planted tank, and only recently started to grow on decor in betta fish quarantine tank (had used planted tank to do water changes). I can grab a pic in the morning. I assumed it was staghorn due to some posts on reddit and a forum, but now I'm not sure. It started off looking like this, and eventually grew out to have black base. Just wanting to make sure.
