As for the male I hope he pulls threw, if not then I will except his loss, and be forced to move on.
I will breed her with a different male at some point again.
For now I will be concentrate and trying to get him healthy.
Nice, shorter finned halfmoons and deltas and possibly HMPKs.

Well I got my male in a Hospital tank and I think he will survive actually. It looks like he has a different disease than what I was thinking. I don't know what it is, but it causes extreme SBD and extreme finrot.

It it one of my other boys and lasted close to two months. I was trying everything and nothing was working. The first boy is finally on a full mend. He is a bit under nourished because he refused food 98% of the time. He eat well now and his fins and growing back nicely. Should be another month or so but he should make a full recovery.

What my male here has looks like the same time with the fins, every fin is becoming ragged.

Not sure what it is but this often happens to me if I over breed them or keep them in the breeding tank too long - ragged fins and lethargy. At first I thought it was the water but fry survived so it can't be the water unless fry has some sort of defence system. What ever it is, most of mine take longer to recover (if ever) compared to other known diseases. Most of them never become as active as they previously were and had to be bred in 1g shallow tubs.

I usually treat with Aq salt + IAL. If he gets worse, I use chemical products (local - don't know the ingredient). In my cases, the key to recovery is their willingness to eat. Once they eat, their immune system will help them recover.

Sorry about your guy. Hope he makes it.

What happened to your male sounds just like what happened to my CT male who I tried to spawn a couple of weeks ago. He was healthy going in to the spawn tank. He spawned with the female and was taking care of the nest. Then he started acting weird and all his fins started melting away. I pulled him out and started treated him with AQ salt. Sadly I lost the spawn but the male has recovered and his fins are growing back.

I sure hope your male pulls through *sends healing thoughts*
I had a wonderful male I REALLY wanted a spawn from, and the same thing happened, I lost him and the spawn. I hope that doesn't happen to you.

It happens to all of us.
Well the male is still alive. I have not done my morning feedings yet, but he ate last night.
I will be scrapping this spawn for at least a month. I don't want to risk killing him or infecting others.
It is time to move on with my other pair.
