Ditsy is the orange finned girl. She's a VT, and came with ich. The ich won't go away and she's rubbed her head raw D: I might have to use AQ and toasty heat to kill those buggers! Nothing seems to be working. :| Anyways, most of the pictures she's clamped up. She got her name because she really is ditsy... She's smushed herself under and between rocks, unlike the other gal who doesn't do that! Se's not very bright :/ Is her coloring pineapple? o_O all I know is she has a dark dark dark brown body with pretty orange fins.

Savanahh is the black with teil plating :lol: She is a good size, came healthy. I grabbed her with the fin rot gal. Before they snatched the fin rot gal literally from my hands and denied me that fish :| I bet they just flushed her :mad: But, now I got Savannah and Ditsy. If my sorority didn't come down with the sneaky columnaris, they'd all be together as of next week (asides the ich infested girl :( ).

well Ditsy seems to be reacting bad to meds - physically. She's "burning" but she hasn't been on anything pass the amount of time she should be on it. I almost give up and want to just do clean water :/ and hope the pests go away.

Wow Savanahh is exactly the same color as the fish I just picked up for my friend. They could be the same fish!

Ditsy sounds like my Pandora. Adorable skinny little thing when i got her. She was the 6th or 7th girl added to the tank and it took her WEEKS to figure out where the food comes from and how to eat it. I have put in food and watched a pellet fall, hit her on the head, bounce off and she just looked at it like "...Derp?"

She is Mommy's Special Girl.

Looks like Ditsy is a chocolate? Same coloring as my chocolate boy almost.

Thanks :)

well, I am at a loss of what to do for Ditsy. That ich WON'T go away! :mad: and her scales don't look healthy so I am not doing treatments anymore. D: She isn't clamped though. Which is good.

So sorry :( How is Savannah and other girls?
I have instructions from Oldfishlady how to treat ich. Do you need it?

Also for external parasites I saw someone recommendation on this forum to do 1 teaspoon of Epsom Salt per gallon, combine with either Jungle’s Anti-parasite pellets, Jungle’s parasite clear Fizz tabs or API General Cure. Both of those combined will treat the parasite and the bloating that comes with it.

But I am not sure if Epsom salt help if fish bloated or it help to get rid of parasite…

Also one time I saw that someone put this post:’’The white could have been her having absorbed some eggs, which will turn their waste white in color. Very common in females, normal.

Ditsy died. I have done many treatments before for ich, just hers would not go away. she deteriorated too fast for her to recover.

I have tried the jungle fizz tabs, and it did not work. AQ salt didn't work, kanaplex didn't work... poor thing just wasn't going to live!

Zebra went senile, so she is in isolation from everyone else. Savannah is doing great
