They could be D: ???

I dont think salt gets rid of them like that :c External, sometimes, but not usually internal..

Luimeril used medicated noms, maybe ask her which she uses and where she gets them?

I know using a certain salt can help boost immune system response and help de-stress the fish during treatment to make treatment faster. I am sure it does nothing to the actual parasites, but helps the fish 'fight'?

Ok, I will ask. Thing is, he is acting wonderful, staying active, building large bubblenests, eating (and not losing weight) so I have no clue if it is for sure. That is why I don't want to douse him in meds if he really is fine. ;/

It'd be nice to QT him just to monitor his feces, though, since I never really see him poop...

I'd like to see the fin rot one too, I've never had a fish with fin rot and I feel it would be very helpful for me, and others. Also it has a lot of great info, I just looked at it *bookmarked*
