"I've had my tinfoil barbs for at least 3 years... I have 2 of them. One of them is 8in. long. The other is 7in. They have always scraped up against the bottom of the tank... I always thought they were just dumb as a door nob... A week ago the smaller one started to swim straight up in one place. It has bloody gills, a chewed up lip, and some white stuff on its tail. The medicine to cure it would cost $40. 1 dose each day for 4 days.(we have a 75 gallon tank) I don't want to spend the money to cure it. I also don't want the disease to spread throughout the tank and kill the rest of the fish...(killing it is not an option!) Is there a cure for this that might cost less?"

To prevent spam, please answer this simple math problem:

3 * 4 = ?
