Cool, thank you. So I would need to get a few bottles of bleach?

I'm sorry! I'm finding this a bit difficult to understand (I learn things better by seeing them)..

soo.

Per 10 gallon, I would use a mix of one gallon of bleach and 9 gallons of water? My tank is 20 gallon, so I would have a mixture of two gallons of bleach and 18 gallons water?

Sorry! I'm feeling a bit slow right now :L

Thanks, I will use that link too =)

Yes, 2 and 18 work. It depends on how big your bottle is.. 4 quarts to a gallon so you will need 8 quarts.

The bottles are: 2L and 2.5L. However they are only 1L and 2L full.

So I would need to use all of the three L? And another three L to make two parts?

Sorry, the conversion thing can be a bit tricky. America uses a different system.

I could find this stuff out on google, though, right?

Thank you so much for your help, honestly.

That is right on the bleach needed. And make sure to cover everything completely and fill the tank to the top!

Bleach is a base. Vinager is an acid. Salt helps to leach out toxins and kills many diseases. As agressive as this bacteria, I would go with all three to be on the safe side. You can even start out with dishwashing liquid since it will all be excessivly rinsed. The bleach will kill almost anything. Vinager will kill it if it's acid sesative. Then a very strong saltwater solution with leach anything that might linger in the sealent.

You can salvange anything hard like filter (not media!), thermometer, tank, and heater. Glad you can throw out it gravel

Thank you! I think I've got it now, I mailed you to verify! Hope you don't mind!

Thank you all for your help! :)


I am going to do that, restock and scape the tank, cycle it and get myself a pretty new boy.

*sigh* The deed is done. It was all very quick but I am keeping her in the water until I get home tonight just to be safe. I can't stop crying.

I'm so sorry, Hopelessaddict. *hugs* You did the right thing. Even with meds, I'm not sure she would have recovered.

Thank you Sakura, and thank you so much for your help.

I'm not sure she would have recovered, either, or even have her dorsal fin grow back.. which means she'd have a hard time swimming, especially up. I know it's the right thing to do but it is very hard to have to do. Thanks :)
