  1. Meant to post sooner - almost 2 years since our adventure on the carpet. Healed as well as can be expected. No scale regrowth on the left side, but otherwise healthy. Tail is a little weird, but I guess as good as can be expected.
  2. no bottom sitting. A bit nose down, but active and swimming.
  3. Much better, still a few persistent spots of fungus. Overall, headed in the right direction
  4. still a few blue spots where the fungus is still persisting. Overall, better than before.
  5. slooowly improving. I think Alive, eating, swimming, pooping. Just the skin is still majorly messed up.
  6. I'd say about the same photo here - https://photos.app.goo.gl/FMk82hZBiAqMMbJP7
  7. Thanks, I will try this. I have been aerating with a long air stone in a full 20 long. It has been a month and he continues to recover and heal - the fungus seems to be the main problem. Should I drop the water lever to 10 gallons?
  8. Unfortunately, I added the meth blue last Sunday, before testing chemistry. So I can't get an accurate read on blue water. Regardless, he has been in the blue for 5 days and not much seems changed except that the fungus is blue instead of white. How long could/should I continue treatment before trying something else?
  9. Ill get the chemistry data up soon, but it is a 20 gallon quarantine tank that was just set up and water changed frequently. Filter is an AC 50 with foam only. Lived with 2 other commons in a 75 gallon with an overflow into a homemade wet/dry filter. Water temp about 53 degrees F. In the quarantine I used salt and AP + with malachite green. I will get some meth blue, but the dosage you provided does not say what % the solution is. I will be getting the kordon 2.3% from amazon.
  10. My large comet jumped out a month ago. When I found him, he was quite dry, but I did notice gill movement so I tossed him back in the tank. He looked like he would not recover, basically floating on his side at the top of the tank. He did show some signs of recovery, but was quickly covered with thick woolly fungus. I put him in quarantine, bumped the salt to 0.3, wiped the fungus off daily, and tried an antifungal. He seemed to improve a bit - the best is the photo taken on the 16th, but I was away for the week and the fungus is definitely back. I think the problem is the dead/dying tissue on the exposed area that was driest when he jumped. Just trying to keep the fungus off until he heals. He lost all of his dorsal and tail initially, but as you can see from the photos, they are growing back nicely. 1/6 1/9 1/16 1/25 1/25
  11. sorry, will try to post a photo, in the meantime, here is a link https://1drv.ms/i/s!AqC3J2cNMwv97GdGWrUaOo0xd5_P https://goo.gl/photos/hEjzmKUC5SEgfUkw7
  12. Thanks. We have seen post with collapsed swim bladders. I was just wondering if anyone knew what could cause the fluid filled swim bladders.
  13. Forgot to mention, his body was obviously swollen and bloated on his sides and belly.
