Update after first 24 hours of treatment of Maracyn and Maracyn II. Upper fin continues to decay, finding black parts of fin in dirty water. Only noticeable sign of improvement is slightly less inflamed gills and a more frequent flaring, pictures attached.

The meds will take a few days to really take hold. It will be a waiting period to see if they take hold faster than the disease progresses, and also to see if they are effective. Are those the only meds you could find?

They had others there, but these ones seemed to be the most broad spectrum (they didn't have kanaplex and the maracyin plus was 2 years old and quite costly). Would other meds even do anything the maracyns wouldn't?

Furan 2 and triple sulfa may have.. Since you've already got him in those I would probably just continue at this point for at least a full round and see where you're at.

Sulfa isn't an option since I'm allergic to it

I'll keep you posted on how this works out.

Update after almost 48 hours of treatment. Significant improvement in coloration! Much more of a blue hue spreading back across the pink area. Fin rot seems to have stopped and the fin is turning back to blue! Will continue to post updates as he progresses.

Sorry we did not catch it earlier. It was peculiar that he was fine, with only the color change... And since we have seen marbles and jumping genes do the same... Good thing he is getting better!
