Uh oh, I'm not sure I'm liking this pic:

Looks like the rot has just about reached the body. :( It may be too late to cut away any fin now.

His treatment is Kanaplex and . . . are you still using the Jungle Fungus Clear or another med? I've lost track.

Yes, he is now on kenaplex for the 3rd day. Jungle fungus clear on the 6th day.

He is still eating and today in good spirits. Spending less time in the cave, even playing with the bubbler last night.

Continue with both for another three days. I'm really concerned that if we stop either med too soon the rot will be resistant to treatment. Keep an eye on him and make sure the meds aren't having any negative effect on him - lethargy, loss of appetite, that kind of thing.

I'm really glad to hear he's acting well and happy. That's great news.

He is still in good spirits today and eating well. He did float on his side for a minute nearly giving me a heart attack but he quickly swam out of the bubbles and I realized he was just playing in the air bubbles again.

I am going on a road trip and won't be back for the 12 hour water change, but I think he will be okay. I will change it as soon as I get back.

Today he is having buoyancy problems again, I do not think it is because i was two hours late on the water change, i think I may have miscounted the dosage on the jungle clear and given him an elevated dose.

He is still eating, I gave him a pallet earlier this morning and he was glad to get to it.

He is just not moving around much now, floating at the top using the heater to prop himself upright. :(

Last time it took him two or three days to get back to normal.

The tail is not looking much different, I think I will have to keep him on the antibiotic till the anesthetic gets here and I'm going to have to do the cut. I am terrified, I have so many questions.

I am afraid of taking him of the antibiotic before all that black stuff is gone. Though I think the KP is the one that is actually affective.

When treating, there's such a delicate balance between keeping them on the meds long enough to ensure you've really nailed the disease and so long that they start reacting to the meds. :/

When you're ready to do the cut, let us know. Either Myates or I will walk you through it.
