Exclamation

Here's a close-up. The white patch is partially hidden by the suction cup, but some of it is visible. This is where he spends almost all of his time. Is it too late for him? What's my next step?

Could it be ich? A co-worker gave me a bottle of Copper Safe, but I haven't used it. He's htill hanging on, but I'm afraid time is not on my side. I really don't want to lose him.

I've gotten so many water treatments and medications in the past few days that I am quite confused by now. I don't want to create a toxic cocktail in his tank. Should I list all the suff I have on my nest posting? It's starting to look like a fishy pharmacy in my kitchen!

Signed,
Very Anxious

It looks like it might be some kind of fungus. I would try Maracyn1 and Maracyn2 together. Maracyn is a broad spectrum antibiotic so hopefully it will help.

Agree on the Maracyn combo. That is def. not ich.

Just be sure to remove any charcoal filtering from the tank if you have any while you're treating him.

I tried to get Maracyn at my local Petland, but they're out of stock at the moment. We've just gotten like a foot and a half of snow here, so trekking to another pet shop further away may be difficult. Is there anything else I can use in the meantime? I have Furan in the house. Would that be a suitable alternative?

He's back to sitting on the bottom of the tank. I don't know if that's good or bed.

I would go ahead and try the Furan. I just read about it and it sounds pretty similar to Maracyn. It treats bacterial infections.

Furan in the tank......we'll see what happens. He's back up on top of the thermometer.

Keep sending healing energy his way. I really want him to come back to us!

I don't see him eating lately. One more thing to worry about. Oy.

Since I can't get my hands on Prime conditioner for the time being, can I use Ammo-Lock instead? My feeling is that it's better than nothing. Is that a suitable alternative?

He's still with us..............
