Gosh he's gorgeous. :thud

Is the redness in wen tissue? It's a little difficult to tell from the video . . .

Yes, I think it's right on the border of wen/non-wen tissue.

Did you notice he's turning whitish :teehee

Is this pic ok? He's thrashing about and all others were very blurry. Does it look like there's a tiny pimple in the redness :(

The redness has been there for about 2 days but it's worse today

It's been suggested that you use Melafix or salt for now in QT.

Also please check around any LFS for powdered metronidazole and Furan 2 in case those are needed.

Ok! Thanks Kokos D&D team :hug

I have the metro powder. I'll start the meal fix and get the furan 2 after work today.

It's going to be a longer than normal day at the hospital :(

I'm checking in while at work :donthit: I only have a 20 Long at home because the fry are in my 10gal. Can I QT Quinn in the 20L or should I sneak another 10g in with the melafix :o

I'm worried about him :(
