sorry for slow responses... I appreciate everyone asking for updates. Unfortunately, she is the same. I have been keeping the water optimum for her and I have treated multiple times for flukes and salt dipped for costia, but she is the same and is never far from the surface. Makes me sad watching her... When I looked at her gills they seemed to be a dark red colouration, rather than bright pink. The white spots on her lips are still there. Can the exposure to air cause these sores or is it definitely the virus.
