Tetracycline treats gram negative diseases.

Both Maracyn Plus and Furan 2 treat both. But since it's internal, they didn't work. I kinda knew that going in. I'd read that it's seldom treatable externally but I was hoping and hoping. I got tetracycline capsules online and they're coming soon. I'll put together medicated food for him. I hope it works, cause eventually he could lose his dorsal from this. :(

I got the tetracycline today. I have to go out for food to mix it in tomorrow. He still has the bloody spots. One of the streaks on his anal is longer today. He's still eating and active and otherwise healthy.

So he had his first treated food today. In all I've read no one says how long I should give it to him. Any ideas? Or do I just continue until the streaks clear up?

You guys are going to bonk me over the head but... do you think he could be a marble changing colors? I was just reading that over in another thread and I went and looked at pics of a blue/white that had changed to red and it looks very similar to what his red streaks look like. AuntKymmie had mentioned that to me and I said no but I didn't know that marbles could do that. Now I'm thinking I'm a big idiot. :P

If he's never shown signs of illness then I guess it's possible that he's changing color.

Well, at least I have all kinds of meds now. I bet no one ever gets sick. Ever. Lol! Not that I want them too. I just feel so dumb.

I'm going to hold off on meds for a while and see what happens with his color. He's obviously not in any kind of distress.

I hope he's ok and doesn't have an illness. I don't blame you for thinking it was a disease. I would have done the same thing.

I think he is a marble.

Clypso had a little bit of bloody fins, and it was on END of his fins. Where the rot was.

Congrats! LOL
