Do you think short soaks in the salt water (15-30 minutes) will still be able to help? I am really worried about killing my snail trying to treat the tetras. I cant find a tupperware container that I is even close to a gallon around the house. I do have a pitcher I could use if it is more short term but I would be worried about making sure there was enough oxygen in the water.
It doesn't seem like a parasite to me. No one is rubbing on anything are acting strangely.
Everyone is still acting normal, happy, and healthy. No one seems sluggish or pale. They are all swimming actively.
I did a water change (little over 25%) and bought some aquarium salt. My store didnt even have Melafix the only anti fungal they had was Jungle Fungus Clear fizz tabs. It says the active ingredients are Nitrofurazone, Furazolidone, and Potassium Dichromate. Claims to be safe for all aquarium fish and plants?
I went ahead and grabbed a pack of it since it was all they had but I have NOT used it yet. I thought it was better to have something tho since I will have to order anything else in the mail.
Has anyone seen this before? What does it look like? The fact that I cant seem to get any answers from searching is a little disconcerting.
