So even after fixing boyancy problems and the on and off contipation and temperay external parasites he's still not better
He was showing signs of recovery then got worse again in every treatment
He had fully cleared parasites but noww he's darting violentl again. I think the cause migh be an internal infecion he's had the whole time that kept him from fully recovering and weakened him enough to let parasites get to him again
So current symptoms:
- really clamped fins
- fins are losing color. Looking paper thin like instead of gorgeous solid cherry like red
-rapid breathing from either the violent darting or just rapid breathing anyways
-havig contipation again ( normally he poops 4 times aday when healthy. During treatments he did 2 pieces every other day whil acclimating now NUTHIN IN 4 and couning days)
- from the poop 5 days ago NO sign of internal parasites( no white stringy poop)
- boyancy. After darting either floats up or sinks down
- looks nervousy skittish like :/
Currently he ended his 10th day of general cure 2 days ago and today's 2nd day of no treatment just destressing
So does it sound like internal infection of some sort? And if so whats the treament?He still looks like the pics in the albulm blazers current condish but without big tummy. He just ate in the pictures
Oh and also HE HAS BARLEY RAISE SCALES. Not pineconing no swollen eyes or grey belly. But isnt that a slight sign of something going on internally?
THANKS AGAIN IN ADVANCE FOR ANSWERING!
Oh and as for stats
Hes in 1.75 gallon
Heated 26'c or 79'f
I add stress coat to all water
He's been through epsoms, aquarium & general cure. ( boyancy. Constipation and external parasites. He's gotten better throu each treatment but then goes back sick a lil bit again
U think it might be some internal infections thats keeping him from fully recovering? Thanks.
Oh and he's a red crowntail. I got him on sept 5 th 2011 so he's not that old
