Hi guys, I'm sorry it took me so long to come back to you, but I want to say how much I appreciate the way you care about my little fishy!
I think fungi is something good to look into with paraguard, considering the research you all included about how oxalate crystals can sometimes be a byproduct of certain fungi. I finished his dose of kanamycin so I'm going to give him a break for right now and look into the paraguard in the future possibly.
My vitachem hasn't come in yet, but the usnea lichen has and I'm excited to try it. I looked on the website about the dosing but if anybody has used it and has any advice about how to administer it please let me know. They suggest making a quart bath and adding 1 tbsp. of the 6 oz preparation, but I don't know how long he should stay in the bath or anything like that- so any suggestions?
And about the lymphocistis- I wondered about that a lot too since the white growth does have that cauliflower like appearance to it. I don't know, the vet never mentioned anything of it, but then again I don't know if you'd be able to see or detect a virus in a biopsy or histopath examinations since it is so small. I've read quite a bit about that and there's nothing you can do to treat that- that's usually the general consensus? what would you say?
JB is so sweet he's watching me type on the computer right now haha
