The left eye is much larger than the right and seems squashed or oval shaped instead of round. It almost appears the eye is grwing too big for the socket. He has/had no fluid buildup and the eye has been noticeably bigger for 6 months or more, and appears to be very slowly increasing in size. The cornea is conical shape instead of the spherical shape of the right eye. The right eye appears nomal. The left side of his face is asymetrical to the right as can be seen in the first picture. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Isnt an overly active fish, but is zoning out or resting /floating more than he used to. Otherwise normal and attentive when i am near the tank. Left eye Right eye

One is much larger than the other, and the smaller one has a funny bump to the rear of it. The bump has been there quite a while now, maybe 6 months but is becoming more noticeable. The larger eye has always been slightly larger than the other, but seems to have gotten much bigger in the last week. She has grown in the last week or so quite a bit too so might be related? * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Normal.

  7. Thanks everyone, they are doing well so far. Though today Morph is a little off his food... well see what happens over the next 24 hours.
  8. Hi all, Was feeling miserable after loosing my two babies this month so hubby took me to a produce store that had fish. These two were in a tank with another fish that was heavily ich-ed. These two were the happiest in the tank and i couldnt leave them. So we are doing a really through qt starting with heat and salt. Tango is the fantail, Morph is the moor. They so tiny! http://i1298.photobucket.com/albums/ag52/Reesbucket/Mobile%20Uploads/th_20161022_144402__161022202817_zpsunoswnv4.mp4
  9. Love love love this little story! :) <3 <3 <3
  10. Ok, the remaining tank guys; p0dge, Pidge, Tweedledum, Louie and Belle are on the second treatment plan, which i will update here. 4.10.16 Prazi rounds are now completed. They have therefore been in prazi for 4 weeks solid with large waterchanges. Today i have given the tank a 100% WC and scrub. I dosed 15 drops of 500ppm colloidal silver as per Taryl and Kokos recommendation. Ill outline next the symptoms each fish was showing, the treatment they each recieved and their status now. Im sorry i cant upload photos for all of these guys. Treatment for these guys commenced on the first. p0dge large orange and white pearscale... P0dge is slightly floaty, slightly squishy tummy, one one and a half cm split in tail, with fuzzy white spots on the uppermost part of the split. Also some pinprick bloodspots in skin. Pinecones if left in salt. Treatment... Completed prazi as per Taryls instructions Salt dip at 2% today - he lasted 6 min Reduce daily feeding for 3 further days (7 days total) to just one pea morning and night. Added colliodal silver to tank Results so far... Within 24 hours, slight blackening appearing at the site the spots were. 3 days later split appears to be starting to heal and slight blackening is fading. 5 days after treatment commenced blackening is fading, split is healing. Fuzzys are gone on tail split. Swimming is still slightly uncontrolled and hes still slightly floaty. Day 5 Further treatment... Continue reduced feeding of peas for a further 2 days Observe. Pidge small orange and white pearlscale... Pidge had pinprick boodspots, noticeable veining on spine and upper chest, 3 fuzzy spots on tail similar to p0dges. Treatment... Completed prazi as per Taryls instructions Salt dip at 2% today - he lasted 3 min 57 sec Reduce daily feeding for 3 further days (7 days total) to just one pea morning and night. Added colliodal silver to tank Results so far... Within 24 hours fuzzynes is gone at site the spots were, leaving 3 very small hardish white specs that appear to be within the tail. 3 days later fuzzyness has not returned, veining is overall reduced, Pidge is more active. 5 days later fuzzys on tail gone, hard white spots at fuzzys sites still present. Much more active, veing and spots further reduced. Day 5 Further treatment... Continue reduced feeding of peas. Repeat salt dip at 3% if required. Tweedledum mostly white calico pearlscale... Tweedledum was showing no alarming symptoms but i treated her along with everyone else just to be safe. Treatment... Completed prazi as per Taryls instructions Salt dip at 2% today - she lasted 5 min 47 Reduce daily feeding for 3 further days (7 days total) to just one pea morning and night. Added colliodal silver to tank. Results so far... Even though Tweedledum was showing no symptoms, after the salt dip she is showing slight blackish marking to her tail. This is fading after 3 days. Day 5 of treatment shows black smudges on tail further reduced. Day 5 Further treatment... Continue reduced feeding of peas 3 days further. Observe. Louie black demekin... Louie was presenting with similar white fuzzy spots on her body and fins to pidge and p0dge. Some fin clamping and flashing also present even after 3 and a half weeks of prazi. Treatment... Completed prazi as per Taryls instructions Salt dip at 2% today - she lasted 7 min 24 sec Reduce daily feeding for 3 further days (7 days total) to just one pea morning and night. Added colliodal silver to tank. Results so far... Within 24 hours fuzzynes is gone at site the spots were. 3 days later fuzzyness has not returned, flashing is no longer evident and finclamping is greatly reduced. 5 days after treatment commenced fuzzys have not returned. Slight finclamping evident, but she might just be having an off day. Day5 Further treatment... Continue reduced feeding of peas a further 3 days Observe Belle tricolour ryukin... Belle is presenting with slight swimbladder issues still, but no other evident symptoms Treatment... Completed prazi as per Taryls instructions Salt dip at 2% today - she lasted 6 min 23 sec Reduce daily feeding for 3 further days (7 days total) to just one pea morning and night. Added colliodal silver to tank. Results so far... So far her swimbladder seems slightly improved with less nosestanding than before. She spends most of her time either swimming or near the surfacecwhere it appears itsveasier for her to rest and control resting. I have however noticed some slight finclamping of her dorsal today. After 5 days of treatment, dorsal clamping slightly evident on resting near surface, swimming remains unchanged. Its seems its easier for her to rest near the surface as per photo. Shes not gulping, just resting. Day 5 Further treatment... Continue reduced feeding a further 3 days. Observe.
  11. Ok, im updating the thread again, sorry for the delay in updates, but a series of migraines prevented me updating before now. Hopefully ill be able to make the treatment make sense.... Curly and Tweedledee... 4.10.16 Still being treated for HITH symptoms. These photos are taken after 7 days on: 400mg metro 2 Blueplanet Trisulfa tablets crushed and disolved 1/4 teaspoon of Oxymav B Curly (sardine in tomato sauce ranchu) Curlys cheek nearly all healed. Close up Curlys wenn is still showing some spots though it looks clearer than it did before. Closeup Tweedledee (calico pearlscale) Tweedledees spots look much improved. Bottom hole is smaller and top hole practically gone now. Close up Helen and i both thought further treatment would be beneficial to ensure the spots were gone on both fish. Further treatment: Continue metronidazole another 7 days (14 days total treatment) Continue blue planet trisulfa another 5 days (12 days total) Discontinue Oxymav B as of today. Review after day 14 of metro.
  12. Theres one like my Belle there!
  13. Thankyou Dawn... I really miss my little Moe. Hi Emilie! Thankyou. My poor Moe was a beautiful natured baby. The others are improving, so hopefully were looking up now!
  14. Ok, the remaining tank guys; p0dge, Pidge, Tweedledum, Louie and Belle are on the second treatment plan. This follows Taryls recommendations for continuing prazi rounds at 3 or 4 day intervals, with 100% wc and redosing. Their last round is completed tomorrow. They have therefore been in prazi for 4 weeks solid with large waterchanges. Ill outline next the symptoms each fish was showing, the treatment they each recieved and their status now. Im sorry i cant upload photos for these guys, but ill try to do a before and after post tomorrow with the photos.

I know i was going to salt dip these guys today but my backnwas agony, so hubby will help me do 100% wc on their tank and salt dip them all again in 2% salt to see if i can get them to last longer in the salt. I will not continue the prazi tomorrow unless its recomended to extend the treatment beyond 4 weeks. Thanks so much! Ill get the photos before and after for these guys tomorrow.
  15. Helen has been guiding me and we decided on two different treatment plans... First treatment plan was for Tweedledee the calico pearlscale and Curly the sardine in tomato sauce ranchu. Curlly arrived in the post with holes in his wenn that would ooze gunk. This was thought to be wenn growth, but i became very worried when Tweedledee, who has been in my care nearly a year and has never had these symptoms, developed two wenn spots similar to Curlys. We decided to try a treatment for hole in the head even though these were not presenting as typical hole in the head symptoms. Treatment: 40L wqt tub, 100% WC double fraction added (in place of prime) 400mg metronidazole crushed and disolved 2 blue planet trisulfa tablets crushed and disolved 1/4 teaspoon of oxyteracycline (Oxymav B) disolved. This treatment was to be alternated every second day with no wc and another double dose of fraction to eliminate any ammonia. I fed half a pea each once a day to keep water clean too. Photos proor to treatment.. Curlys wenn and cheek Closeup Tweedledees wenn Closeup Treatment commenced on 26th September... After 24 hours... Curly Closeup Closeup Tweedledee Closeup On day 5 of treatment... Holes on Curlys wenn much cleaner, no longer oozing. His cheeck spot is also no longer red and no longer oozing. Closeup Closeup Tweedledee Top hole has opened and looks clean and appears to be healing. Bottom hole has lost the whiteness under it within the wenn. Looks to be sligtly sunken where it was slightly raised before. Also appears to be healing Closeup Tomorrow afternoon these guys will have been in treatment complete 7 days so ill post further photos tomorrow. Ill adress the treatment plan for those remaining in the main tank in the next post in a few min.
  16. How did u know i was working on it right this minute? Trying to get photobuckrt to cooperate! Its not liking me tonight! Should be done soon! I hope!
  17. Thankyou! Its really been very traumatic, but i am trying to come to terms with it all. Im hoping the others will be fine. Thankyou so much for the hug! It was very much needed!
  18. Thanks Speckles! I still feel like i failed her in a major way. My ocd is really beating me up about it. I know i did the best i could with the information i had and i tried but my silly brain isnt listening. Thankyou for your kind words. My rational brain can speak a little louder with confirmation. Thankyou! Thankyou Lisa. I will miss her terribly, she was a very special baby.
  19. I hope so too! I cant cope with this much sadness. So far the others are less drastic issues and will resolve with lots of clean water, a little more prazi, and some silver.
  20. Thankyou mjfromga. It was a lesson very hard in the learning. I just couldnt sit by and do nothing. Thankyou for your sympathy though. I appreciate it and know you understand, esp with all your heartache youve gone through with your babies. <3
  21. Hi, just letting you know ive euthenased Moe. I think the Kanaplex might have made her even worse. She has been in the metro knaplex epsom for 5 hours and gotten heaps more swollen, pineconed and her skin was splitting. I loved that little mush face! Sorry i failed you Moe. Ill just keep an eye on the others and see if their symptoms improve or deteriorate with the last of the prazi and the silver.
  22. Hi again Taryl and Koko. Ive not heard what to do yet and shes gotten worse. Her swimming is worse and her anal region is much more swollen and getting a purpleish red tinge. Shes also started mild pineconing. Her side is still distended. Ive bitten the bullet and started medicating. Shes in a 40L tub half filled to help reduce water pressure. She has a slw airstone and is in darkness. Ive just done a 100% WC and added a dose and a half of kanaplex and one metronidazole 200mg tablet along with 1/2 teaspoon of epsom. Ive not increased the temperature incase this is bacterial. Heres the photos of her current condition.
  23. Thankyou Speckles! Im almost too scared to go check on her. Ive left her in the dark today to try to let her rest.
