Hi, My favourite guy, Sir Elton, a white oranda I got in July of last year has not been well. I have been very stressed by this. I have completed 4 rounds prazi. I had an outbreak in my other tank. All other fish are completely fine and completed treatment without issue. Elton started bottom sitting about two weeks or so before I started treating for flukes. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level Tank 0 * Nitrite Level 0 * Nitrate level 0 * Ammonia Level 0 * Nitrite Level 0 * Nitrate level 0 * Ph Level, Tank 8.2 * Ph Level, Tap 8,2 * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API liquid test kit. * Water temperature? 72 * Tank size (how many gals.) 29 gallons that's been running for about 7 months. * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aquaclear 70 and Cobalt EXT * How often do you change the water and how much? 80-90% 2X a week. * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? 90% yesterday * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 fish, about Elton 3.5 inch body but about 8.5 with tail. a smaller oranda 2 inch (moving out so Elton can be treated in tank if necessary) * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime * What do you feed your fish and how often? Repshy Solient Green, NLS Algea Max, NLS Goldfish, occasionally peas and seaweed * Any new fish added to the tank? No * Any medications added to the tank? yes see below, fluke treatment * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Prazi 3 weeks and week 3 one 4 day treatment of Tetra Parasite Guard (ran out of Prazi and was waiting for it to come in...all that was available locally). This last treatment of Prazi I used salt. Approximately 2 1/2 months ago or so Elton got injured on a filter intake and there was a bit of blood where a scale got damaged. It appeared pretty superficial so I did water changes and added melafix and primafix. No issues. In fact, his very long tail fins looked better than I have seen or even when I got him. There was blotchy light red marks that I now realize are more than just veins because his fins have been clear since that treatment. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? had some slime coat on his wen. Elton has been bottom sitting, especially when lights are out. He eats fine and moves about when I get near the tank. He will even bottom sit occasionally when lights are on. I know some goldfish bottom sit during treatment but I am pretty sure there is more to it, especially since I think the flukes should be under control now. Could there be something bacterial? I wanted him moved to a 75 gallon about 2 months ago but unfortunately that has been another stressor. I live in small town BC and one was ordered, then lost..then the store changed owners. Thankfully we are going to the city later this week and I will get one there. Anyway, I am going to move his tank mate out and do a big water change to get the last bit of prazi and salt out. I am pretty sure I have the following meds: Paragaurd Kanaplex Metroplex Triple Sulfa Salt Primafix Melafix Prazi Pro Thanks
