    A fewxoxo
  1. Helen,as ALWAYS,your fish and tank look beautiful You've acquired some precious pearlies And, I am STILL impressed with how clean and pristine your tanks are! It's so good to see your babies again
  2. Without getting into the situation at hand(for the moment),if I used epsom on a fish for 10 days/2 mos. ago,is it safe to treat w/ epsom again now?Thank you
  3. Params are paramount. Look forward to hearing them. Hopefully it's nothing serious.When was the last w/c?
  4. I just want to add a final update The red patch has been completely gone for quite some time,but I kept him on MM for 14 days(he loved eating MM all day long!) . Saturday was day 14,and he went happily back into the tank last night. I moved 1 fish from that tank,and put him in the pond-he was nippy,and I suspect he's caused a couple of issues with the others Thank you,everyone!
  5. I just want to pop in for a quick update: he's doing really well-the red is all but gone We will stay on course w/ MM
  6. No,Alex,I had not started the other 3 yet-it was just a preemptive move I was thinking about making. If you think it would be a waste of time I won't. Would MG be appropriate,or should I just hold off entirely?
  7. You can usually get them in a bag(10 lbs or so) at a garden/landscape store. I'm pretty sure Home Depot will have them..........
  8. Don't panic! It sounds like planeria-not dangerous to your fish. I think you just need a good cleaning of your tank and filter. Hang on until someone who knows for sure about them. But,don't panic,and as Mikey has requested,pics would be helpful...........
  9. I am aware of such problems,and have determined it is worth the risk here. I am only asking Alex about the 1 who had them not long ago......Thanks Mikey......
  10. No,he has never dropsied before He was 1 of the 3 fish that got SO bad during the ich debacle-he has been fine since. He is in a tank w/ a white chu that gets red in/under her wen from time to time,and I do use Nitrofuracin Green in the tank-every few mos. As a matter of fact,I used it only for 5 days a couple of weeks ago-as opposed to the 14 recommended...........could that have anything to do w/ this popping up? He is doing really well-he loves being on MM as he can eat all day long The red is not quite as angry looking as it was yesterday. Below is a vid-pardon the lack of focus-I have to hold him upside down w/ 1 hand,and operate the camera w/ the other -but I think you can get an idea of some improvement. The rest of the vid is to show you how he cruises around his tub-he is so much stronger than he was when I moved him . BTW,that was about 30 hrs ago. Is the fact that he's getting better indicative of a bacterial infection? I have a question........b/c that white ranchu in the tank gets red under her wen,I thought it may be a good idea to put that whole tank (3 fish) on MM. My concern is that also in that tank is an oranda that was treated w/ MM for dropsey(symptom) for 19 days-at the end of May-is it not a good idea for him? Come to think of it,this is the 2nd problem to come out of that tank in the past couple of mos.-maybe also a good reason to feed all of them MM? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBfV3OotuM0&feature=youtu.be
  11. Thank you,Lisa-that is very nice of you I was in a rush to get him into qt and did not weigh him. I will weigh him later-I'm just so thrilled he is eagerly accepting the MM I also have a scale to weigh out the MM-thank you very much
  12. Thank you,SC He actually seems better/stronger since the MM. He's had 8 pellets,and is now swimming up and taking them from my hand He's in about 15g of water w/ a cycled filter and air disc. (I'm just documenting all this info......)
  13. I just gave him 2 pellets of MM-I had to almost force it on him-poor guy does not feel well
  14. I just felt his belly-not really soft. I have not seen his poop b/c he's been in a larger tank,and I've only just moved him. He hasn't eaten b/c Sun. is typically fast day. I think getting some meds in him would begood-but I don't know which 1-I don't know if MM are apropos here..........What do you think?

I applied hp swab,hoping that would take care of it. I thought it might be better for a short while, Now,this red patch is angry red looking,and seems a bit larger. It looks like maybe an internal infection,as he has some slight red veining on his belly also. I have him separated in a qt,and am anxious to get treatment started. Are MM appropriate here? Thanks guys. This fish and I have been thru a lot together(he was 1 of the ich fish 14 mos. ago),and I would seriously be bummed if I lost him Here is a vid of it/him: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzMeEQbSqrU&feature=player_detailpage
