Please Help, I don't know what else to try. We have tried many treatments over a span of two months and nothings seems to help. We recently bought Tetracycline but we don't want to use it just yet. We want to give the last treatment of kanaplex some time to see if it works. I'm nervous about all the treatments we have given him...
He is even scared of us now because he doesn't like being scooped up for hospital treatments. He swims to the bottom of his tank and into his shell whenever we come near by. : (
