Medicine can have that effect. Ideally, I'd like him to stay in until all of his scales are completely down but I don't want to OD his system either. Rachelle, it's your call. If you think he's okay to head back home, go for it. But if you think he can stand a few more days of treatment, go for that. You do what's best because you know him best.
If you do move him home, I'd suggest keeping him in at least 1 tsp of epsom salts per gallon for a week or more to be on the safe side.
No matter what, you've done a fantastic job with the little guy.
Okay. Today is the day! He's going home! He's been listless and pale.. and still a tad pineconed.. but he needs to go home.. he hasn't improved at all over the past week, so I'm hoping his home will do the trick. It's warmer than my 29G tank that's for sure!
I hope he will be okay. I have him acclimating right now, and I did a quick 50% water change (I've been doing them all along ) and added about 1-1.5 tsp of epson salt per gallon.
:( If he doesn't feel well still, he'll probably be paler. Can't remember if I mentioned it but you may want to keep him in 1 tsp of epsom salts per gallon to be on the safe side. If you have any Indian Almond leaf or decaffeinated pure green tea, you can add that as a source of tannins as well.
