Not anymore I don't. The last fry was killed by some sort of stupid parasite yesterday.

Oh no! :( This really is a nasty streak of bad luck. I'm very sorry that you've been going through all of it!

Emptied and cleaned the fry tank. Ugh.

And I entered in the photo of the month contest, maybe I'll get a couple of votes.

Good luck in the contest, and I'm really sorry about your fry. Sometimes fishkeeping can really suck. (It's worth it in the end, though.)

Please help! My red hmpk I purchased from elite himself is sick.
I bred him successfully and the fry are now 10 days old. He has been in a jar since breeding as I have been reconditioning him because the spawn only threw 2 fry. I found out yesterday night he has a white fungus on one of his eyes. His eye is popping out of his head but he is active and overall seems happy. I am super worried because he is the only male I have that is breeding quality. He has been moved to a hospital tank with IAL and Kanaplex. Is there anything else I should do?

If it's 'pop-eye' and he otherwise seems healthy, it generally heals up on its own. I had a couple of fish with quite severe pop-eye, and just keeping the water clean and the fish well-fed can help it to clear up.

I believe the use of Epsom salt can also help bring down the swelling. I have never used it though, so not sure what amount is necessary.

Inremember one of my endless had popeye. It somewhat healed and he survived, but his eye fell off from it.

Like I said on bb123's journal, ial and kanaplex is a good place to start as popeye is often bacterial in nature. The correct dose of Epsom salt is 1tsp/g predissolved, and then you can work up to 3tsp/g.

One of my boys has popeye despite numerous rounds of treatment, but he is otherwise healthy and lives a normal life. I just keep an eye on it.

Mah, what's an endless?

I went to petsmart (I absolutly hate it but it's cheap and close) to get lights and saw an emaciated and tailless (it had rotted off) "halfmoon". Ugh. Pet stores make me so sad. He has the potential to be a gorgeous fish... Clean white body and marbled red and white fins. His condition is also relatively easy to treat, especially by someone who knows what they are doing, but he is still probably going to be dead in two weeks. There's no way he should have ever gotten to that condition. Stupid petstores.

He would have came home with me, but I'm not willing to risk introducing any more diseases.

/rant

If someone would be willing to adopt him after I rehabilitate him though... I might be able to pull some strings. XD

Oh, and I also came home with some cambomba for the sorority.
