  1. Update: after the 6th dose I wanted to wait about 3 to 4 days to make sure that Blue's infection didn't come back before asking what the next would be. Luckily the infection hasn't returned, and the prolapse has even receded some. What should be the next step in Blue's care?
  2. Yeah Alex kinda rocks I hope this infection gets under control good luck!! Thanks Mernany... I do too, but it's not looking like there is going to be a permanent fix and it keeps showing signs of infection on the day he's due for more medication. I can only dose him 2 more times. Hopefully they will do the trick.
  3. Thanks dnalex. You've been a tremendous help, and I do appreciate you so freely donating your time to offer advice:)
  4. The intestines that have prolapsed aren't a bright red any more; they are more of a white/pink color, but it starts getting the white cottony infection each time by the second day when I need to dose again. So far I have dosed 4 times. Do you think I need to do a 5 dosage tomorrow?
  5. Yesterday he had some still attached and it looked like it had small patches that were empty then patches that were full; it was about 2" long.

  7. Very tastefully laid out. Looks beautiful.
  8. Hope these work. http://s1306.photobucket.com/albums/s569/Strings2Treasures/?action=view&current=0A587E9A-B8CA-4529-BADC-0646CA323181-10894-000004F6BE0ADF63_zps67d70341.mp4&evt=user_media_share http://s1306.photobucket.com/albums/s569/Strings2Treasures/?action=view&current=null_zpsb1f9a731.jpg&evt=user_media_share
  9. Wednesday's update: Blue is still acting normal and eating like a pig at meal times. Tonight I put the 2nd dose of Kanaplex in the QT. the prolapse is still swollen and infected. Keeping my fingers crossed.
  10. What I get from your above post is that I should definitely do 4 doses and possibly do 5 doses depending on how Miles is doing. I'm glad you asked the question about dosing Mernany.
  11. Got it... No soaking food in Kanaplex, stop reading other forums and how they recommend taking care of prolapse. lol Is the 50% partial water change before dosing ok, or should I do more?
  12. No, I now have him in a 10 gallon medicated with Kanaplex. Thanks!
  13. Hello everyone. I started the medication last night. He still has the infection today, but it doesn't look as thick as before. I guess I need to be patient and give it some time. Kanaplex states to repeat every 2 days up to a maximum of 3 doses. I'm planning on doing a 50% partial water change each time before dosing. Thanks for everyone's support. I feel like I have some backup instead of just going it along. The owner of the fish store told me that if I soak the food in water with the Kanaplex it would absorb in the food and when fed to Blue it would work faster. Since the infection is on the outside I put it in the water instead. Would it be better if I did it the way he recommended the next time?
  14. dnalex, I have called the lfs and some not so local. I finally found one that carries Kanaflex at a Mom and Pop fish store about 1.5 hours north of where I live. Luckily they stay open till 9:00 pm, so I can go after work to get the Kanaplex.
  15. You have a cute precious telescope. I can't help any, but you are in good hands and will get the best of help from the more experienced members.
  16. Do I need to remove the mystery snails from the 10 gallon aquarium I have put blue in?
  17. Now that I am using a pic of my husband and I I'm pretty darn sure I haven't used anyone else's avatar.I did think about using my tattoo pic, but there is always a chance someone else has one like it, but it's highly unlikely...still
  18. Mernany me thinks you are having a grand ole time with this whole avatar thingy. That's ok, we all deserve a good laugh. I just hope I haven't made Smegy dislike me with the whole mixup.
  19. No problem motherredcap, as I previously said someone else got me confused with Smegy when I introduced myself a couple of weeks ago. It didn't click with me that I had used the same avatar as Smegy. I have now changed mine so there shouldn't be any more confusion caused by me hopefully;)
  20. I appreciate all the helpful advice that was given by Narna, Helen, Dnalex, all the words of encouragement from others. Thanks so much!
  21. Thanks Chai. I agree. After trying to figure out the problem through Internet searches, which I couldn't find much info about this particular problem. I decided to just go to the best. Here I am at Koko's.
