RedRaz, this is fantastic news! What a little fighter! Go Raz! I'm so glad he made it through the night.

I agree with sunlight, keep him wherever you can keep him the most stable. If that's his cup then just change it out frequently. A good way to do this is to premix a gallon of AQ water. Then you just pour it in as necessary.

I know he is such a fighter. I never met such an amazing little fish. Okay that sounds good. I have some premixed sitting on the side. Actually I have 2 gals sitting on the side. I wanna be as prepared as possible.

Raz has been swimming here and there but gets easily freaked out. So I'm keeping him in dim lighting and very quiet. His back fin is getting pretty thin. I hope that it will stop. Other then that his color is good and his eyes are clear.

Yep, definitely keep him dim and quiet. If he gets hyper he could get stressed and stressed leads to sick.

Go Raz!

He ate on Saturday but hasn't since. Took me so long to get him to eat that. Now again he won't eat.

Oh Red, I was just reading the story I missed a lot, I had to come and see how you and Razz are doing, I couldnt log on too long last night, was tired..when I saw the part you said your good byes, I wanted to just reach out and hug you, omg, I know how you are feeling after Shelby..

I couldnt imagine, my tears was blocking me from reading the rest..then I saw he made it thru the night, You are doing an amazing job..and your razz is strong..and he is fighting hard..my thoughts and prayers are with you both..and even tho he is struggling he is doing it with someone who has been by his side the whole time..and he knows it:)

You stay strong too..It is soo hard I know to see your lil guy go thru this.. but we will help you get thru it:)

sunlight, I think they are AQ salts since the box says it can be used to acclimate fish from brackish waters. It's apparently the UK's version.

Have you seen any more rubbing or darting from him, like he might still have flukes?

If things don't improve, perhaps a parasite med such as Seachem ParaGuard is in order.
