:( Yup, most plants really don't like medicines.

Okay, so since I'm on the last day of treatment and there are still a few fuzzies, I think I might do a second round of Maracyn 2. (If that doesn't work, I'll switch meds.) So, I have two questions:

1. Before the second round of treatment, should I give him a day without meds to rest, or should I just go ahead?

2. Should I continue to do regular water changes during treatment to try and avoid whatever happened with the slimy stuff, or should I just leave it and test my water daily?


Thank you,

~Saphira

Because Maracyn 2 can be hard on the kidneys, I would give him a day or two of rest before doing a second course.

If you do the regular water changes, you may need to redose the medicine each time. Otherwise, you're probably fine doing it the same way as before. I think one of the reasons you got the slimy stuff was because your live plants were melting.

Thank you. I think so too. Poor plants.

Sooo... I was giving Merlin a day of rest from meds, and when I woke up on day 2 of rest most of the fuzzies were gone! (?) Do you know why this was?

It's possible that the meds caused him to create extra slime coat and without the meds, he just shed the unneeded coat right off. That's great news. :)
