Well my uberis female is still hanging on! She hasn't eaten but there are blackworms in there for her if she feels hungry at any time. I put a sponge filter on low as the IAL was making her water cloudy, and she has no issue with getting to the surface to breathe.
Her eyes are not looking as bad in my opinion as what they were, and while the infection doesn't seem to be getting better, it doesn't look to be getting any worse.
Currently, she is just getting 50% daily water changes and aquarium salt as treatment. I noticed she still may have some ich from the original infection, but that will have to be the second step in treatment.
If she recovers, I will be removing her and her male to a separate tank of their own and letting her three sons and two daughters share a tank. She has kind of fallen in the pecking order and I think being constantly harassed hasn't really helped her get better.
Also have sold (well I think he is picking them up this weekend) three of my unimaculata juveniles. At this point, I just want them gone as they are too much hassle with water quality and jumping.
