  1. Thanks Mandy Hope you are well xx
  2. Thank you have we met before?
  3. Hi. It’s been a while.
  4. These are beautiful Koko 🙂
  5. Angels Plus have just confirmed they don’t ship to the UK anyway
  6. I had to look up TAG, that’s amazing! She does look like a clever little sausage 😊 Sorry to hear she struggles a little in other areas but great that things are getting better
  7. I’m researching euthanasia and treatment options simultaneously. I’m obviously finding it hard to pick an option. He doesn’t even have a tank anymore and my partner has just accidentally broken the air pump
  8. I’ve just seen your reply. I was about to ask whether I’d be crazy to buy this medicated food and syringe feed him? https://angelsplus.com/collections/fish-medications/products/medicated-antibiotic-flakes I’ve syringe fed him before but that was with metromeds. I know you can’t tell me what to do. I’m just finding it difficult because unlike before, he’s moving etc (albeit not eating). Its hard for me to jump from no treatment attempts straight to euthanasia. But I also want to do what’s best for him. i noticed on one of my old dropsy threads (“nitrates in tap water to high” )that Epsom salt was recommended. ugh, I just don’t know ☹️☹️☹️
  9. What a beautiful little girly Without sounding like some kind of annoying long distance aunty, I can’t believe how much she’s grown! She was like a little cherub when I last saw her
  10. Thanks Taryl. I was looking in the video and article section I think I’ll be doing it tomorrow. I’m unsure of both the sedation dosage and the euthanise dosage for a fish of his size. I think he was around 90g last year before he lost his pelvic fin. I can weigh him again if necessary
  11. Could someone please send me to the link to Helen’s euthanasia video she made a while ago? I can’t seem to find it. I hope it’s still available to watch
  12. 👍🏻 I have to have an online consultation for my ‘acne’ in order to purchase the oxy I can’t do it right now, I have to go I’m also busy over the next 2 days with medical appointments. I think he’s currently comfortable. I’m torn between fighting for his life and leaving him to fade on his own. I just don’t know what to do
  13. I think I’m going to use the 10gal red tub as his hospital tank. If he survives, I’ll get another new tank. Shall I purchase metronidazole tablets as well?
  14. Thank you both. Due to my own ill health, I’ve had to halve the amount of water changes over the past few years (not ideal I know), but I’d always gently squeeze/rinse the filter media every 6 weeks or so. I’ve looked on eBay but don’t really know what I’m buying. i can only find the tablet form. How would I use that? This is his current set up. The tub is about 10gal. He had 2 filters in his main tank. I kept a little one in there for emergencies and that’s the one I’ve carried across until I figure out what to do. This was the tank 6 months ago. I re-bought the exact same tank in April of this year as the previous one was getting scratched and shabby from having it for so long. Wish I hadn’t now! I transferred all the media over from the old tank to the new tank and there was no cycle bump at all. This was him 6 weeks ago, very wriggly and happy and enjoying food. His dorsal has always been folded over like that and his fins haven’t changed condition for years. I took this pic below yesterday during the water change (before the tank cracked) to try and show his scales but it’s not very clear, sorry. Yes, he’s missing a pelvic fin! I got admitted to hospital last year and when I returned it had gone Completely clean break. It really upset me at the time. I kept an eye on it but there was nothing to really heal. Just a tiny little smooth stump.
