Maracyn is ok, not as strong as the other two. Have you tried giving him a salt bath?

Hi..Im giving him a salt bath now and he is really calmed down..no more laboured breathing...and he had rapid gills while he was on the bottom of the tank... I just have him in a small bowl and wondering if I should just keep him in something that size for now with about 5 cups of water...then he doesnt have to travel so far up to the top for air..in the big tank he was really having a hard time..Ill just use the water from the tank that has the meds in it..do you think that would be okay??

It would be ok as long as you can keep the water clean and warm enough

Any suggestions of how to keep the water warm enough..its just a plastic bowl that holds about 6 cups of water

i took him out of the salt bath and put him back in the tank, and now he is doing what he did before..really struggling to breath with rapid gills..trying to swim..but cant get off the bottom of the tank...its very upsetting

All I can suggest is to put him in the warmest room in the house. You can't heat a small bowl. I'm sorry about your fish.

I want to update...
every one...
I prayed asked god for a miracle for my fishy....and he did....he is swimming around so good now..and the same happy fish again...uhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....Im so happy y know.....i prayed for a miracle and got it...

I actually dont think it was the meds..as he was on his death bead...and about one hr later...poof...i had my miracle...that took alot of praying and alot of stuff with God...as I dont know him that well
i told him i want to get to know him....and my journey will be the same as yours okay...gosh im scared too...

but he healed my fishy...from prayer...whoo hoo eh....................

just imagine what he can do for you.;.????????????????????

if you need a miracle in your life...just ask and pray is all......i love all of you.....xoxo

Wow! SO happy to hear he pulled through! I have seen columnaris before and I honestly thought nothing could be done.

Keep medicating until you have finished the course of antibiotics. We don't want to drive this thing to the brink only to have a resistant strain make a comeback.

Cheers!
