Ohh, okay then. I was a bit worried about that to. I really hope Stu pulls through.

I hope so too. It's encouraging that he was swimming around a bit. :) I'll certainly keep my fingers crossed for the little guy.

I'm unsure if Stu is going to make it. He seems to have improved and then gone drastically down hill. Any last advice? Also if he does die, how do I clean out the tank with bleach solution?

Immune system lowers because of stress. Hope he gets better.

If she's still around PM AUS for a list of medications available to Australia. I believe she's treated her fish for columnaris before and lnows her Aussie fish meds.
Sorry.. dont know how to link user names...

Well, Stu is still alive this morning! He's acting the same still, but if he keeps pulling through, hopefully he will get better!


Aokashi, I havn't bothered PMing Aus. I havn't seen her around on the forums since her Strohi died a few weeks ago.

The antibiotic most consistently suggested by experienced aquarists was Kanamyacin (Kanaplex, brand name). It's also broad spectrum, so treats not only gram negative bacteria but also other kinds that may cause secondary infections.

If it was available here, I'd so use it! Sadly, it isn't, so I use Myxazin

Thank you so so much Aokashi! I'll see if I can get some today. I wonder if it's broadly available.

I'm glad to hear Stu is still hanging in there. Will he eat anything at all?

He dosn't want to eat, he kind of looks at it but dosn't go for it. I just went up to his tank and he totally spazzed out. He swam at like full speed to behind his plant. I'm not sure if this is a good sign or not...
