Jexx, sounds good. But if he does seem like it is getting too much, don't hesitate to take him out because as you said, you don't want the meds to do more damage than good. Good luck with the little guy. He's sure a tough one. :)

Stay tough little guy! I agree with you, I think there's a good possibility it's the meds making him feel urpy. :P My guys tend to get like that after a few days of meds as well, but they're back to normal once their TMT's are over and they're back in their clean water. :)

Prayers for Galileo continue!!

This morning he ate 5 pellets! He was also swimming around for a while. Now he is resting again. Still, that was quite the improvement. I can't wait to get him back in his home in clean water. Just one more day!

Ahh I am so torn. I want to put him back in his reg tank. But today is day 5 of the medication. I don't know if that means I should keep him in the medicated tub until tomorrow or if I can remove him safely today. After the improvement I've seen today it makes me want to take him out because he is still strong enough to swim around. I'm afraid more days will make him too lethargic so when he goes back to his home it will be too overwhelming. should I put him in his home today?

I'd leave him in until at least tonight, that way he's in there for the majority of his Day 5, but still not a complete 24 hours. You definitely don't want him to relapse.

You may also have to treat a second time. With stubborn stuff I've had to treat twice occasionally, with a break of a day or two in between to let their little systems rest. :) He's a strong little guy, and hopefully this ordeal is over after this evening, thoughts and prayers continue!! :D

I gave in and put him in his tank. I cleaned it thoroughly and filled it with water that is 81 degrees and treated with stress coat and vitachem. He is much better. actually swimming around. But resting too. The difference is, he is resting in his favorite spots now not on the bottom of a plastic container. I think I made the right decision. As of this morning, he had clear regrowth on the entire edge of his tail. If I need to retreat him I will, but for now I am letting him enjoy being back in his home.Take a look at these pics. I just took them! Galileo looks nothing like he did yesterday. Esmeralda is suuuuuuuuuuper happy to see him. The snails wanted in on it too!
