Thank you Cathrine for the tip. I am sorry I havent had chance to write back sooner but I have been real busy. I am trying the ick solution and raising the temp of the water. I have my soft shell in a 30 gallon tank about 3/4 full but he really cant get all the way out of the water to bask good. Should I drain out more water so he can get his whole body out of the water to bask once in a while? I thought he was getting this fungus from being in the water all the time. Thanks again for your help.
