  1. Hello. I think one of my fishies has dropsy and here you can see photos I took. I was advice to treat with magnesium sulfate that is found in Epsom salt aka English salt, metronidazole and kanamycin ingredients which are found in Seachem Metroplex and Seachem Kanaplex but I am outside of US and don't have luxury of wide selection of products. Local shops do not seem to have those but they may have Sera Baktopur Direct which company recommends to use with Sera Ectopur that should complement treatment. I have 35 litre container for quarantine and want to know what are the steps to proceed with treatment. When I use Epsom salt? Do I use it to prepare water and then dropsy medication? How often I change water and add Epsom salt again and is it safe to add both? Should proceed with procedure even if not absolutely positive about fish' dropsy condition because I don't know how treatment will impact fish provided condition is different. • 4.7 gals since middle 2011 when I got aquarium • JEBO water filter • 50% water changes - 3 times one week, 2 times another week and repeat • No water additives - only dechlorinator • Sticks in the morning • No new fish ever • No medications so far
  2. Hello everyone!! I hope everyone is in good health and spirits I'm trying to get some advice on my quarantine tank. I bought some lion heads and pearl scales. I noticed that some are yawning and doing a little darting when they "think" I'm not looking. I did a 100% water change yesterday and today I did another and added 10tsp of Epsom salt. I think that I'll have them in there for about a month or more. The tank will stay at my job but I'm taking two home at the end of QT. Am I on the right track? I've seen it said many time that most times fish come with some sort of "issue" mostly flukes. It also seems like fish coming to the Virgin Islands end up with a bad deck of cards. Now I also bought a bottle of aqua prazi but now the heck do I go about treating in a ten gallon tank. ... I even saw a video with castille soap. I kinda wanted to take a bath myself but soap and fish I'm bat crap scared especially after spending that kind of money on fish. I was gonna do my main tank at home after the others have went through QT but I'm not sure how to proceed other than Epsom salt. I'm really scared to bump up the salt to 30tsp even gradually but I see that some people do it for the first two weeks.
