Thanks! I'm going to pick up the meds tomorrow morning, when Petsmart opens.

My local Petsmart only had Maracyn (erythromycin)....

I know it's not the correct medication, as it's for gram-positive bacteria, and all the meds that were recommended were for gram-negative. But Petsmart's medication shelves were almost completely empty. They only had Maracyn and some anti-fungal meds. I spoke to a sales associate who said they have nothing else in stock, and she didn't know when a new shipment would be arriving.

So I got the Maracyn, and added the correct dosage to his tank.

If the little guy and I are lucky, it'll turn out that his issues are caused by something that's gram-positive and susceptible to the erythromycin.....

I'm going to look up the next closest Petsmart and Petco stores. They're quite a distance away, but maybe I can drive out there over the weekend....
