One is positive gram, the other is negative gram... I still need to restock mine xD Though I know they both say almost the same things on the back, for diseases, right?

Right, but which one should I use for this? I'm thinking it might be best to use the Maracyn based on the description I read on the instruction sheet. It says Maracyn is for patchy coloration, clamped fins, rapid breathing, etc. I don't think what Cobalt has is an internal bacterial infection?

Since it is fungal... I'd say go ahead. Add it slowly, so not to shock the poor fella

Maracyn is the one that is most likely to work on this, but you can use both together for a more broad spectrum approach. Make sure to predissolve and dilute for the size of QT he's in.

Will do the predissolve for the 1 gallon in a larger bucket and dose that way. If I use both of them together, do I add them both at the full concentration, or half of one and half of the other?

You can do full concentrations.

Both meds treat 10 gallons so you need to dissolve in 10 parts of something and add one part of it to the tank. For example, 10 cups of water and add 1 cup of the solution to the 1gal QT. Make Sense?

Is there an ideal temperature I should be shooting for?

I'm beginning to add the medication slowly over the course of the next hour or so. Keeping the tank around 78. I'll keep you guys updated on his progress!
