When Posting for Treatment Advice! READ!

Hello. Im a fairly new member, Long time forum stalker. I noticed these Treatment forums, and seen all the questions the "advice givers" are having to ask for.

When asking for advice on treatment, you should provide as much information as you possibly can. Very little information makes knowledgable breeders, keepers, and care specialists have to ask questions. Which in turn wastes time that could be spent tending to your fishy!
Furthermore, while determining what a fish has so it can be treated is important, ruling out any contributing factors that may have caused the illness to begin with is equally important. It is always good to avoid illness to begin with.

So. If you want a prompt diagnosis for treatment, we NEED THIS INFO!
Having to "Swim Around the Bush" for this info wastes valuable time in saving your little buddies life.
Below is a short form that you can copy and paste, which if fully prepared, will provide a knowledgable fishkeeper with enough information to give you a quick answer.

_SYMPTOMS_

Behaviour Changes:

_WATER STATS_

This information will be extremely helpful in providing you with a promp diagnosis to your problem.

This is great advice! There is also a sticky on here that covers similar information that people are asked to cut and paste and answer the questions when asking for advice. Some use it, some don't, some have to be reminded:)
