Okay, so Link here (scroll down):
Has some fin rot (also possible mild fungi infection on his head, or he ripped some scales off, idk what that looks like) and I read that Melafix can cure this. I also heard that it can kill them too.
I started treatment last night and am waiting to clean the water tonight until I find out if it's okay to use this. I put in the correct dosage for a 2.5gak tank. I also just used aquarium salt last night with is, I was advised to do so. I use AquaSafe for conditioner that is in there as well.
So I would like to know is it too soon to look for any results? Should I just used aquarium salt and the conditioner? I could also reduece the dose of MelaFix if that will help as well even though it is 1/4 the dose for the tank. He has a heater and it is about 77 degrees. He still won't eat and he runs himself in the the marbles/ his cup when he is startled, maybe even more.
I am taking him on a plane on Sunday to fly back to Oregon. TSA is allowing him in the cabin with me. I live in Hawaii for school so he will not be coming back with me mostly likely. I have found a home for him to stay at till I'm back but I want him to be healthy by that time. I will hopefully get my hands on a 5gal with a better heater, light, and filter system.
Let me know if you need more info. I know I have another thread about this but I wanted to know what do to about the Melafix thing, the Wal-Mart here has nothing else for fin rot in it and the nearest Petco is on the other side of Oahu (Not in Honolulu where I am). Convenient, huh?
