I posted to my original thread
this morning, but since the symptoms have changed, I decided to start a new one.
To make along story short, Yuki got finrot...he chewed his tail fin off and it got infected. He stopped eating, and was lying on the bottom of the tank. I treated with AQ salt, but when that didn't do the trick, I tried Erythromycin (the only thing my LPS had for external infections).
Today is his last day on the Erythro, and his finrot is pretty much gone. There is only one teeny tiny red spot on his tail fin now.
But he's still not eating (he's eaten one NLS pellet in the last 10 days), is still lying on the bottom breathing hard, only swimming to go get air, and now a new problem has started.
When he's lying on the bottom he appears to be listing to one side. And sometimes when he comes back down from getting air, when he lies down his tail end sometimes is floating up a bit instead of him lying flat on the bottom.
Has he started a swim bladder issue? How should I treat him? How can I get him to eat? I have no idea what my next step is. Poor little guy...I just want to make him better.
He won't even look at his pellets, even when I soak them in garlic juice and plop them right in front of his face at the bottom of his tank. Do you think he would eat frozen blood worms? I don't have any, but I could get some.
Any help would be appreciated!!!!
