I'm leaving town early Wednesday morning, and won't be back until Saturday.
Unfortunately, Daiquiri is still very ill. She has a lesion on her underside. It began with a flesh eating bacteria that attacked her side... That's been taken care of... It was just beginning to heal when some very aggressive fin rot (assuming columnaris) ate a piece of her anal fin right down to her body within 24 hours. Right now, that lesion is what we are fighting. She's doing very well for her situation.
She's active, eating her antibacterial pellets, and being treated with 3 tsps of epsom salt/gal. Her only problems are the lesion (that looks like it's stopped growing), and she's pretty bloated. Worried dropsy might set in, but I'm fighting it with the epsom salt. She reached day 10 of her antibiotics, so I took her off of those, and am attempting natural methods until I return from my trip.
My question is if there's anything I can do before I leave to make sure I don't come home to a dead fish? I just lost Mew this morning to the same thing, and that's why I'm worried. I could already tell she might not have made it, since she wasn't eating at all, she was bloated, and hiding a lot. But I see potential with Daiquiri. Is there anything I can do?
