That is right on the bleach needed. And make sure to cover everything completely and fill the tank to the top!
Bleach is a base. Vinager is an acid. Salt helps to leach out toxins and kills many diseases. As agressive as this bacteria, I would go with all three to be on the safe side. You can even start out with dishwashing liquid since it will all be excessivly rinsed. The bleach will kill almost anything. Vinager will kill it if it's acid sesative. Then a very strong saltwater solution with leach anything that might linger in the sealent.
You can salvange anything hard like filter (not media!), thermometer, tank, and heater. Glad you can throw out it gravel Posted via Mobile Device
I'm so sorry, Hopelessaddict. *hugs* You did the right thing. Even with meds, I'm not sure she would have recovered.
Thank you Sakura, and thank you so much for your help.
I'm not sure she would have recovered, either, or even have her dorsal fin grow back.. which means she'd have a hard time swimming, especially up. I know it's the right thing to do but it is very hard to have to do. Thanks :)
