  1. To be honest im considering putting him down. I dont think he will be able to make a full recovery at this point and I dont think its fair to let him linger like this.
  2. Tomorrow will be the 10th day. The bloody spot came back. Its much worse than before.
  3. Well it does not look infected anymore and the bloody spots comes and goes. He still spends all his time at the surface and it seems like he cant control his swim bladder at all.
  4. Correct, sounds good. Ill keep yall posted if anything comes up.
  5. Alright, got the triple sufla in and both are in the tank.
  6. Yes. Its starting to look like it's getting infected though. Ive been keeping up the every other day wc's. He is eating fine luckily and is able to get the food.
  7. I got the metroplex in and im still waiting on the triple sulfa. I have run out of parasite guard as of today. I was looking him over today and it does not seem like it helped much.
  8. Sorry I have been absent. We just had a death in the family that we have all taken it hard. I have him in a 10 gal QT. Im waiting on the Seachem Metroplex and API Triple Sulfa to come in the mail.
  9. Sorry i couldnt update. A family emergency arose. I have him on the parasite guard. Should i add in the prazi pro? Or just the oarasite guard? Any salt?
  10. If this is my best bet ill go this route. Ill have to wait until I get paid on the 9th. What can I do until then to help him out? Also he is floaty all the time. Video http://vid508.photobucket.com/albums/s323/dakotak_01/Animals/20141228_162127_zpso96ts3vx.mp4

Solo has been floating really bad these past few days, 2 days ago I noticed a bloody spot on his left side and slight swelling. Last night the bloody spot got smaller but swelling bigger and today the spot is a little smaller but more swelling.
  12. Thought you guys might wanna see him now. He's in the tank with the big guys and loving it.
  13. Update!! Fin rot is definitely gone, his eyes are looking good. He has gotten even fatter. Im confident in saying he is healthy now. Thank you guys! I cant wait to add him to the main tank when he bulks up some more.
