Do you mind giving me how you treated him (in detail) in case my current treatment doesn't work?
He really looks great and his color is beautiful!!! Hopefully his fins will make a full recovery!
P.s. LOVE the tank!
! Ok here goes what my wife did: (she's the healer, not me! :)
Started him off on a 5 day cycle of Maracyn2 and MaracynTC. No water changes for 5 days. On the 6th day, did a 100% water change and continued the 5 day treatment cycle again. The back-to-back arrested the advent of further rot.
After this we got him his 2.5g tank since it was getting really cold in his 1g bowl. Got a filter and an immersible thermometer to accurately maintain the temp at ~78F. Also got a heater in case the temp dropped real low (but never used it). We also used to add Stress Coat and aqua salt to his water every 2 days during the 2 cycles.
We fed him on freeze dried blood worms once in 5 days to get his proteins up. At other times, kept him on 3 pellets a day. That's it! the fighter fought through and looks not too bad now.
Hope Luchi makes it through his fin rot too. Keep us posted!
Edit: Just completed the 3rd cycle of meds today. I think we'll give him a break for a couple of days now :)
