Pfft. :l
So he seemed to be getting ick or some sort of exterior bacterial infection. there were faint long trails of white occuring on his body. Too faint for me to get a clear picture of. I just got and treated him with ich treatment last night and he seems better today.

How long should I keep him in QT? His symptoms for fin rot seem to be gone, and I've stopped treating his water for the fin rot. I don't think I'm going to treat for ich anymore since it seems this last treatment helped with ich (or whatever it was if it wasn't)

He hates his little dip 'n pour that I use to keep him in the heated tank. Glass surfs it all the time. But I don't want him hiding in his greek ruin decoration like he did when he first got sick so I couldn't see his progress.

His fins are start to unclamp, though. I wonder if being back in his divided tank would speed up their unclamping? They've been clamped for quite some time, now.

Follow the parasite and ick instructions to the letter, invasive parasites have to be killed not only in the fish but when they emerge as well.

I'm trying a pair of Jungle foods with antibac and antiparasite in them, dunno how well they'll work so I won't endorse them yet.
