Well now Jackson isn't looking to good. He looks like he got into a fight... He's also sulking and being sad. Hopefully he can hang in there until I can get the antibiotics tomorrow... I don't know what I will do if this is myco... Even if this isn't myco it is still really bad and I want it to go away. My dad has a friend who works in microbiology who may be able to do some tests if this continues so that I can actually diagnose it... Tomorrow is going to be a busy day for sure. I'm going to do lots of pictures of all of my fish (figure it out.), buy kanamycin, treat everyone (symptoms or not), and I will also be talking to a few more people hopefully.

Thanks for the help and the support, Shae.

Mycobacteria
TB meds is what you need to use apparently. Right now if it is TB you have to destroy all infected fish, break everything down and do the recommended cleanings in that thread. On top of that, live plants must be tossed.

How did they get sick? What new fish or new plant? This is a reason I never used the same net in the tanks I had... To avoid spreading unknown and fatal diseases.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

I don't even know if it is myco yet... I don't want to make that assumption and unnecessarily euthanize a ton of fish. Besides, if it is myco, I will probably let them live it out and when they get ill (go lethargic and start bloating) put them down. I haven't introduced anything new for a while except for my petco fish but they are in qt so that's not it. At is point it could just be a bacterial infection which still sucks but isn't nearly as bad as myco.

Today I'm going out and buying clove oil, rubber gloves, and kanaplex. WTH.

If you like I can do some digital arts for the ones you've lost, to remember them by. Can even send you the prints, free of charge.

Also, and I understand how very frightening this is right now, after everything's been said and done and you've done what you need to do, remember to take a moment aside for yourself to recharge. You're no help to your fish if you're stressed beyond belief and making yourself sick in the process. We're here for you, just like you've been there for us.

I'd be happy to =) But I hope it doesnt come to anymore dying.
