How are you adding the medication to the tank?
I add half the packet of General Cure to the 5 gal tank right after I do a water change then I wait a few hours to add the kanaplex

Are you aerating the water at all? No aerating or filter
What's the current water temperature? 78 Degrees
Do you know the pH? 7.6

no improvements from my last update. he eats a little but doesn't finish I feel because of the irritation in his gills.

A convenient way to dose General Cure is to get a container that holds 5 cups of dechlorinated water. Add the dosage of General Cure and mix it well. Then ass 1/2 cup of medicated water per 1 gallon of tank water. So if his tank is 2 gall ,you'd add 1 cup of medicated water OR if the tank 3 gall - you add 1.5 cup and so on......

his gill went back in and he's eating but he's back to scratching on stuff :/ I might have to drag this treatment out an extra week. the eye swelling is going down but even with kanaplex Ill probably have to extend the treatment.

You may have to consider treating with something else for the gill flukes. The medication you are using is not what worked for me in the end. Is it possible for you to get a video of his scratching?

it's his 3rd week of treatment.

I could try but it would be hard since he doesn't do it very often. also I don't know how to upload the videos

what other meds should I try?

You could try Coppersafe, it is available at petsmart. I used a medicine called Clout, you would have to get it from a specialty local fish store, and you cant get it at all in some states. Its a very strong medication.

Coppersafe says it treats the water for up to 1 month, but don't pay attention to that, the frequent water changes to interrupt the life cycle of the flukes would still be necessary.
