Hey guys! I just wanted to pop in and let everyone know that Pickle has finished his course of MMs and is doing AWESOME!!! No/very little floating, no sores, and he appears to have started a growth spurt! I got some soilent green which I have been giving to all the babies, and they're loving it. Broke open a probiotic tablet and mixed it in rather than using JS.
I also bought a canister filter (finally) and MAN do I love it! The fish seem to, as well. Much quieter, and it creates a much smoother current. They're now able to just 'hang out' in places they couldn't before. Makes life much easier for Dorito the ranchu.
Thanks again...you are all, quite literally, lifesavers
