  10. i posted a while ago about my moor sitting but didn't get much of a response, he was sitting now and then in the shop when i bought him but was quite active but now is rooted to the bottom. i have tried esha 2000,adding salt to the tank and feeding peas but no joy. tank water is good and regularly changed,other fish are fine. he was having white stringy poo's also. he seems to try and swim but crashes to the floor,i thought he might be badly constipated? anyone got any ideas?
  11. is it against site rules to put links? did you read it? i was just interested in the treating with iodine and using a sealer,i've never heard of sealer before myself but i'm pretty new to diseases. the esha has been in the tank 2 days today,it has a dropper built in and a chart telling you how much to use,i've used it before and had no adverse effects. i treat for the 3rd day tomorrow then its complete. may have to do salt baths if it still looks bad. are you recommending leaving him in a salt bath?
  12. so you don't think esha will help? wouldn't the change of water conditions cause more stress if i put him in a bucket? what do you think of this? [DNAlex removed link]
