I really hope he gets better! :( It sounds like you're doing all you can for the lil guy.

I really do too.

I don't want to lose two friends in one month :(

What has been keeping me so stumped is how this happened... because there is no reason for some random infection to crop up! He was so healthy and happy and active.. and now this?

:( At least he's eating!

But it looks like some of his scales are falling off... does this happen often with pineconing?

Not typically but it is a possibility, if the scales are protruding at an extreme angle.

The most important part is he is eating. Will he eat medicated food?

Yay! That's great news. The best way to target internal problems is to send the meds straight to the source.

He was the same, still a tad bloated with raised scales.. but still swimming... that was at 5am. I'll post an update here when I get home if there's a change. :(

Now that I'm home, he looks about the same.. stlll very active considering he's in a QT tank.. he seems interested in the bubbles from the air stone that's for sure.. I'm going to try feeding him some frozen brine shrimp with garlic and kanaplex...


I just want him to be better!!! He was my little man fish.

You know what? He might be getting better!!

Could you guys take a peek and let me know? He wasn't as still or corporative for macro shots (yay!) but I got a few... My boyfriend thinks he looks better..and I really hope I'm not being hopeful here...

What do you guys think?

Oh, and his poo looks normal! Nice solid and brown.





These last few were taken in his QT tank, floating in my 29G tank.. it has more lighting from the tank light/flash.. I think he's getting his color back and he isn't as chubby..... he can swim a bit easier!!




Thoughts?

Looking a bit better for sure. Keep on the treatment and keep an eye on the pineconing. Yiu and I are in the same boat, my friend. :P Cass looks about the same as your little guy right now, so I'm hoping both of their treatments are going well.
