Are you sure it's Ich and not Lymphocystis? Where are the spots and do they appear in a line?

No, they're everywhere and there's no pattern. It looks like ich to me, but I don't know for sure... I'll Google both after school and compare.

Okay, it's most likely Ich, just wanted to make sure is all.

Yeah, it definitely is. No way it's Lymph, it looks nothing like it. Gonna cup all boys today and give Leo and Pigg low salt doses, and Milo a high one. Hoping this all goes away soon.

Milo passed. I feel so terrible, I put just a drop of Melafix in his cup and I think that did it. I should've known! I can't believe he died, he was so healthy besides the ich! I'm gonna miss him so much. I wish I knew what went wrong with him, he's had the ich for about 5 or 6 days, I thought he was getting better!

I'm taking Pigg out of the ten and putting him in the 2.5. Leo will get the whole ten. The snails will be with him until they're new home claims them. I'll be watching the boys like a hawk for ich symptoms.

Oh no I'm sorry! I doubt it was the MelaFix that did it honestly, I'm sorry for him though.

I've just been reading bad reviews, I have no idea if that was just too much water change for him or what. I'm guessing it was the stress combined with the illness. I wish he'd hung on, I'm gonna miss that cute little guy :(

I had to euthanize Pigg today. He was hardly breathing, hadn't moved in hours and had refused food for days. I can't clear my eyes, and I can't get rid of the lingering guilt, but I know that I don't regret releasing him from his suffering. I wish I could post pictures of him, but they're all on this thread anyways. I now have my favourite picture of him framed by my bed with his stuffy. I hope that wherever he is, he's happy. And bugging Atlas relentlessly. And that he has all the bloodworms he could ever eat. I'll miss him more than I've ever missed a fish before, and I hope he knows that.
