Dexy has been doing well today so far, but I still have her on the MMs for the pineconing. Klaus was bottom sitting all day (until 4 when I had to go out for a dinner) but when I arrived home he was swimming around normally. I just gave him some food, so I'll let you know how that goes :)

So far dexy is still a little pineconey but she's super active today :-). Klaus is doing alright, but now he's floaty instead of bottom sitting

Ok sounds good! Should I prazi too or just start with mms?

I'd like to give the MMs 24 hours headstart to be out in the tissues and then go in with prazi :)

Sounds good! So, for a plan of action should I leave the two sick fish in the main tank and move the little healthy one into the empty QT while treating the main tank?

Or should I put the two big fish in the 20 gallon QT together..?

Thanks again!

Ok sounds good. I did a wc and added the prazi today. Dexy is very active and happy today. Klaus isnt doing as well though :-(. He is refusing food. He's been pooping thev long clear castes and his belly is very hard... I know the last time I gave him mms he became constipated. I'm concerned because it seems to be effecting his swimming ability. He mostly just bottom sits, but he'll move when I get near him. Is there anything I can do for him..?

Thank you Alex! I fed him a piece of a pea with I little piece of Epson in it. It took me a bit to get him to eat it, but it looks like he ate all of it. He still looks like he's having trouble getting off the ground though

Ok sounds good! Should I go ahead and move him to the QT tank then? I think I read on the forum somewhere that you can't treat with salt if one of the fish in the tank has been dropsied previously (Dexy has had it and she's being treated too).

Ok! So Klaus is officially in his own tank with Epsom. He seems to be doing a bit better already :). His appetite seems to be increasing again.

How long was the Epsom supposed to be in the tank? Was it 8 days..? I don't remember :(

So I had to leave the house for a couple of days to visit my family in town. I left them with my significant other for that time. I get home, and my QT fish now has a red spot on the bottom of his body where he has been bottom sitting :-(. I'm doing a water change now. Do you think he'll be ok? My sf says he hasn't been eating much either
