thank you for the reply Sakura, unfortunately i wont have a chance to try it on him. thanks for all the advice in treating his ailments while he was still alive. i'll still go to Plattsburgh to get maracyn 2 amoung things to be better prepared for such situations.
he passed sometime between 7pm-11pm yesterday. im not too sure what did it but atleast he was in normal clean water for 3 days after the meds stopped. there's no obvious exterior signs of sickness for him. he did lose his appetite after 3 days after starting the 2nd round of 8 day med cycle.
i do feel partially responsible as i have been feeding only 2 pellets a day on any given day. sometimes i overfeed them to balance it out to the 3-4 pellet equivalent. i left the food right in front of his mouth but he never tried to go for it, garlic extract didnt work either.
im sad he's gone though releive in the sense that he wont have to suffer any sort of body rot or just too many reoccurences.
i'll clean out my 2.5g tank and leave it as a hospital tank. i cant understand my 2,5g tank at all. within 4-5 days i get.5-.75 ppm ammonia. a 50wc will only cut out .25 ppm within a few hours. i dont think i'll use it for regular fish use but its much better than a 1g for a hospital tank.
