If things don't improve, perhaps a parasite med such as Seachem ParaGuard is in order.
No he has been calm. The only time he freaks out is when I have to do the water change. I am as gentle as I can be but it's hard on the poor thing.

You think he will be able to handle a med again?

I'm not sure. ParaGuard would act differently than the antibiotic erythromycin does but I think it would probably be best to keep him in AQ salt for the full 14 days and see if that does the trick before we try meds again. But if after the full salt treatment ends and he still is sick, we may need to consider it.

Yup, that's it. It's a good med to have on hand because it treats a lot of external parasites.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that, RedRaz. You're going through a lot of bad stuff right now. Your mom will be in my thoughts along with Raz.

Hey Sakura8. It's been an exhausting week for sure. She is doing better thank you.

Update on Raz: He is quite pale and swimming less today. Tail doesn't seem to have anymore loss from what I can tell. He is still hanging in there though.

I say this with a very heavy heart...My Raz passed early this morning. He was such a fighter til the end. Swim in peace my sweet Raz.

Thank you everyone for caring so much for Raz and helping through all this. You don't know how much I appreciate all that.
