Well I picked up Jungle Lifeguard All in one treatment.
It's says
-Attacks a broad range of external fish diseases
-Convenient pre measured tablets
-Extremely effective against fungus and Ick
I'm crossing my fingers that it works.

And I know this is off subject, but I bought stuff to make my own dividers, and next week when I'm done treating Merlin, I'll being doing some fish rearranging. I'm putting Aqua and Blue in the same tank, with my clear Petsmart divider, so they can see eachother and Blue will hopefully start back up with his bubblenest. And I'm gonna put Merlin and Fishy together with my homemade divider, so they can barely see eachother. Merlin and Fishy are the only two who flare and have attitude problems, so that's why I'm gonna use the divider so they won't see so much of eachother.
Anywho, I'm getting off for a few so I can go clean up Merlin's tank and start treating him. ttyl guys.

it is not ich. ich looks like salt crystals. if is is not just junk picked up form the tank white stringy things are usually fungal. Here is hoping is is just tank junk!

Be careful with melafix, do not use full doses. It has been shown to harm some (not all) anabantids, which is why they came out with bettafix, which is the same thing with a lower dose of tea tree oil. Merlin may be fine with it, but some air breathers can not tolerate the stronger melafix.

well I don't have Melafix in there anymore. And when I used it with Blue and Fishy, I used less than recommended. But I have the Jungle Lifeguard all in one treatment in now. It says it also is used as a preventive, so if he has even anything, hopefully it will be gone in a few days. And if not, all is well.

once i noticed one of my new fish had slimy stuff coming off of him and i decided it was his slime coat. i had read that they can sort of 'lose' their slime coat when they get stressed. it was really weird. it was when he was still in his petstore cup and he had just endured the ride home from the store and all. i figured it was enough to stress him out even more on top of living in a tiny cup at a pet store.

Thanks Liyah.
That's interesting Ashley, I've never heard of that. I guess if it goes away then comes back it may be that. Hmm.
