Unhappy Elvis...really bad now...

My poor Elvis. He is even worse today. I dont know if it was the meds that were overkill,or just his problems in general. But today he is just laying there. Not even making an effort to move. I touched him with a straw,normally hed flip out and swim off. Now he just laid there. So i think his poor lil body cant take much more. I hope hes not suffering. I think i did all i can do for him. I dont think he will be here much longer. Maybe a day or so. But not much more.

I can't say I know how you feel, the closest thing I've gotten to sick is fin rot with two of my boys. I know if something bad happens to any of my babies, I'd be a wreck though.

Yeah. I never really dealt with sick fish. Since my last set of fish was when I was little lol. So,yeah Im sad. They supposed to live years not months! I dealt with a sick hamster,he only made it a few months. Seems the ones that you try your hardest to save are the ones that live the shortest and hurt the most when you lose them.

Thanks sunkissed.

Poor little guy. It's so rough losing them, I was a mess with Rex. He was our first little guy.

As a last ditch effort try giving him a salt bath unless you have already. You can give up to 5 baths a day. Often times holistic cures are just what the doctor ordered, as the stronger medicines really stress fish out. That is usually my starting point to sickness is a salt bath and 100% water change with a light dose of bettafix in the water as buffer to prevent illness from spreading.

Sorry to hear your guy is not doing to well.

My Red Copper male Scooter was my halfmoon who I had a lot of problems with. He was only 8 months old and he died two days ago :(((((

Well I think you should pamper him as much as possible and hope he gets better. Oh and pray a lot!!!
