I was looking at my fry today, who are just a few days old today, and it seems like some of them have a few spots that look gold or whitish.
I was thinking "Now how in the world could they have gotten ick or velvet...?! And so fast.." I now see that one very sick male who I am about to euthanize (really depressing btw, first time I've had to do that) has ick. He has an infection on his face that has slowly been eating away at the tissue. I have tried marcyn 1 + 2, betta revive, salts, everything to help him and after weeks he's lost an eye and half his face is an open sore.. he doesn't eat or swim up to see me or anything else anymore, so it's time to let him go :(
I have his old heater in the fry tank. I washed it with extremely hot water but apparently not thoroughly enough.. some of the fry have little dots on them, it's hard to tell if they're white or gold, but they don't look like dust the way velvet does. I'm really upset at myself. I thought I did a good hob of cleaning it.
How do I treat a fry tank? It's a half filled 10 gallon with at least 50 fry in it. I am really scared I'm going to lose them. I've done a search of forum posts as I know I've seen others talk about it, but I wasn't able to find any results. I can get any medicines I need. On hand I have marcyn 1, 2, betta revive, epsom and aq salt as well as access to petco, petsmart, and two local fish stores.
