Seachem Prime, also use Flourish tabs under the sand for my sword * What do you feed your fish and how often? Alternating between Repashy Soilent Green, NLS 3mm sinking pellets, and frozen bloodworms, 2x day * Any new fish added to the tank? added the 16g tele May 3, just shy of 2 weeks qt (from a trusted Koko's member and we talked about recent prazi etc) * Any medications added to the tank? I have since done a round of prazi just to be on the safe side. * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. No meds for this fish other than prazi. Two other fish in the tank have had MMs for dropsy, the most recent round began 4/25 and lasted 2 weeks for Franklin. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? a couple small split fins that began with some chasing behavior May 3 and haven't completely healed up, plus a scuff looking area near tail, does not seem to be raised or anything * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? seems to have started with some terrible head-standing and floatiness a couple weeks ago, and now bottom sitting most of the time. Still very interested in food. I'm attaching a couple longish videos that include the other fish and a feeding, so you can get a good idea of the general behavior in the tank. If you see anything else worrisome please let me know. Separately, I've kicked around the idea of using an internal de-wormer as a preventative measure like we do with prazi, but have been afraid of losing fish if we actually do have an issue with that. The reason I am slightly suspicious is that the red cap oranda has gained NO weight over a year's time despite being a very voracious eater. Videos
