A standard treatment is 1tsp/gal-I have gone up to 3tsp/gal in sever cases-with any increase watch the fish close for adverse reaction

You can remove the substrate-this is one of the reasons I like to treat in bare-bottom QT container that are clear so you can not only see the fish well but what comes out too.....

I got some frozen brine shrimp and new life spectrum pellets. I offered him the shrimp but he wasn't interested at all. I thought for sure it would perk him up. At this point I don't really understand how he's still alive. I thought they died if they didn't come to the surface for air. Well, that hasn't happened in a really long time. And the fact that he hasn't eaten in weeks..It just seems impossible.
