I'm still having problems with butterfly #2 [emoji17].Last night he stopped eating and has been bottom sitting ever since I started up the prazi pro treatment again.
Today is day 6 of treatment in the 10 gallon qt.
Double dose of prazi.
I also added kanaplex to the water because now I see some pineconing but, only on the left side.
I tried to feed metro meds. The other butterfly seems completely fine and happily ate them up. Should I separate them?
This is also the email I sent. I just received a response.
Let me know how it goes. Your quarantine procedure is quite elaborate. Sometime medication and excessive water change can be stressful to the fish. I usually let the fish rest and recover then preventive medicine only if needed.

My two butterflies have been in QT since I got them. I keep having problems with the orange and black one. Lots of bottom sitting. The other is completely fine an active. They are both eating. My qt consist of salt, which was raised in 3, 12 hour increments to 0.3% and praziquantel. Today I noticed some slight pine coning ( raised scales on the left side). I went ahead and treated with kanaplex. They are both in the same 10 gallon qt and they get daily 100% water changes and the re-addition of prazi for 4 days straight one day off. Always having 0.3% salt in. I usually do this for a month straight before adding to main tank. No filter, just an airstone, bare bottom.
I attached a video so you could see.
Please let me know your thoughts.
Your thoughts are much appreciated.
