Recommended Posts

That looks really nasty. Hope he heals quick.

I wi admit, I thought this was Smegy's thread up until the last post.

Thanks. I've been worried and trying to read up on fish with prolapse, but there wasn't much to find other than what I mention about how I've treated him so far.

When I introduced myself a few weeks ago someone else mentioned that they thought I was Smegy, but it didn't click. I can be a little thick at times.

If you wouldn't mind changing you avatar that would be lovely and save us all some confusion.

Haha this whole time I thought you were smegy too hehe :) I even said to myself "smegy has been here long enough to know what 'the list' is why is she asking?" :rofl

I hope that your fish will recover smoothly and keep up the good work!

Strings, could you please upload a video of the affected fish?

Please do not use HP any more. In the future, for swabs with disinfectants etc, do not do more than once, unless there is a very compelling reason to do so.

There is no need to apologize for the accidental use the same profile pics. People should be thanking you for so graciously agreeing to change the picture, and I believe Smegy did thank you. :)

I not so up to date on what you are talking about when you say HP. Thank you.

No, she didn't apologize she just asked me to change my avatar and asked me why I thanked her when she had just read my post. Anyway no harm done.

Thank you for your understanding, and for agreeing to change the pics. I will most definitely save us all from a case of mistaken identities. :)

Don't worry about it, time for a change anyway. Good luck with your fish.

No, Smegy keep it. I already have an Avatar from my pic that I'm going to change mine too. I just am trying to do a partial water change in 2 tanks and figure out what HP is. Thank you.

Will the previous link I posted suffice?

Could you try to see if your local fish store(s) carry this medication called Kanaplex? I would like for you to get it.

It's not the same. I would rather not use Melafix if that's OK.

If my LFS does have Kanaplex should I just follow the bottles directions, or do you want me to administer it differently?

Are you thinking that Blue has an internal parasite, or internal bacteria?

I know that you will be guessing, but do you think that Blue's prolapse problem can be corrected after what ever is causing it is corrected?

Thanks Chai. I agree. After trying to figure out the problem through Internet searches, which I couldn't find much info about this particular problem. I decided to just go to the best. Here I am at Koko's.
