  1. Hi again, my little guy Lucas is sick again. He has not completed prazi and after his 1.5% salt dip reaction I did not continue to a higher salt concentration. He begins round 5 of prazi tomorrow. I am concerned because he is sitting on the top of his sponge filter and letting himself get hit by the bubbles... all day. He swims when he sees me (or gets food) but other wise sits right there. Another thing is when I observed him yesterday I noticed a small patch of his body where there appears to be a red dot. I thought i saw something weird like that after his last salt dip but thought maybe it was stress or a scratch or something. I think it's strange it is still here. I can't get a picture to capture it my camera just is not that good. He has not had any growth either in the past month. Parasite? Worms? I don't really know what else to do but salt and prazi. I do have metro if needed. I will attempt video later but my camera is super slow to upload from my phone. * Ammonia Level (tank):0 * Nitrite Level (tank)0 * Nitrate level (Tank)0 * Ammonia Level (Tap):0 * Nitrite Level (Tap)0 * Nitrate level (Tap)0 * Ph Level, (Tank) (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)7.6 * Ph Level, (Tap) (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 6.8 Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? api drops * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? n/a * What kind of water additives or conditioners? prime, baking soda, crushed coral * Water temperature? 73* * How often do you change the water and how much? prazi schedule only 100% changes on the w/c days. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? yesterday, 100% * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 3 G (I know too small he is scheduled to jump to his 20G this next week) * How many fish in the tank and their size? just him, 1 inch maybe. * What do you feed your fish and how often? twice per day soilent green or super green * Any new fish added to the tank? no * Any medications added to the tank?prazi and salt * List previous issues experienced (dropsy, SBD, etc.) was bottomsitting, being treated for flukes. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? red dot and off colored scales (like his whole body is WHITE but the scales near the dot are white if that makes sense) * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.?
