Okay. Yeah, I'll only use it on him. I'd like to use it on her, to help the open wound, but I'm not sure either on the salt.
Maybe I'll have to see when she poops? All that was in her cup was uneaten food (she ate one soaked flake while I was walking around the store with her bowl), and tiny little poop pieces, all of which were brown.
got both home, he won't eat (that is fine) and she ate a bloodworm.
The dosage thing is kind of tricky. I can't dose my tanks (except Ty's which is a 5 gallon) with antibiotics without checking. Let me message my friend, Sakura8, who is not only a great diagnostician, but is good with dosage amounts. Oldfishlady too is super good at that. Would it be okay if I sent Sakura your question and story?
I don't know a whole lot about sick fish, but I've always liked math. :) Our powers combined, we are captain planet?
Dissolve one packet into one cup of water and add 15 teaspoons of the mixed up water to the 1.5 gallon tank.
Explanation: 1.5 gallons is 15% of 10 gallons, so you want to give her 15% of the standard dose. If you dissolve 2 packets in 1 cup of water (250ml), then the appropriate dose for a 1.5 gallon tank would be 37.5ml of that water (15%). To avoid wasting medicine, you can dissolve 1 packet in the 250ml of water, but double the amount of water added (30% instead of 15), since one packet can effectively treat 5gal and medicine is expensive. Each teaspoon is 5ml.
250*0.15=37.5 -- 15% of a cup
37.5/5=7.5 -- number of teaspoons in 15% of a cup
7.5*2=15 -- twice the number of teaspoons (since we are using half strength solution)
I'm sure there was an easier way for me to explain that, but I need more coffee.
