Its been a stressful few days with my little man. He is still alive but Im not sure he is going to make it.
He is still in the smaller container floating in the 10 gallon.
He is having great difficulty seeing his food to eat it.I end up having to put in 3-4 pellets, one at a time, as he tries to eat them with no success until it falls to the bottom and I try another one. After he gets one I stop.
The white spots seem to be about the same although now that he is in a small countainer I can see that he is "shedding" alot of it. There are at least 10-15 white spots a day on the floor of his home. They are not moving there though. Would external parasite originate from inside???
He is moving awkwardly at times aroung the countainer and seems off balance somewhat. At every daily water change he sinks to the bottom and goes sideways for a while and goes pale.
Some good signs are.....He still greets me when i approach so he has some vision. Through all this he makes small patches of bubble nests. He has made it this long so i still have hope.
Treatment right now is daily water changes with aquarium salt. at 2tsp per gallon. Althouh i am thinking i should switch to epsom salt with the unbalance????
The female is stable, active and eating. Her bump is bigger though so I am going to have to treat her soon.
Here are some pics again.. I know I keep posting them but i think a picture is better that words. You can see the white things on the bottom of his little tank. also his gill white spot just got rubbed of when he swam past his plant so it is not in the pic but has already come back
