Dosed QT tank with Prime

Ammonia less than 0.25, zero nitrite

The main tank had a 80% WC, dosed with Prime and Prazi, as per schedule.

We were going to discuss the QT treatment; it has no Kana now, and no Prazi. It does have Metro. I do a water change tomorrow, and I know I'm scheduled to put in Prazi & maybe Metro; but that's all I know.

And don't be surprised if his tail never gets completely red free as it's very easy to see vessels in white fin even when they are not ill/stressed.  We'll just have to see what his "normal" ends up being.  :D  He's looking great.  Nice work!  :hi5

Yay!!! I'm pretty confident his normal will be pink & kinda bloodshot. Lotta of tissue in them thar fins need'n feedin'.

Though I hope it will subside a bit more. This whole post started because they were redder than normal & shredding.

He's such a good looking fish. I can't wait to see him back to 100%. :)

It's normal for white fins to get a little red as the fish grows older and larger. Just hoping they're a little less red once he's all healed up. :nana

Helmut has returned from his exile!

His tankies appear to be glad he's back!

I will do at least one more treatment of Prazi in the main tank, probably two.

The video quality is yuck; will re-upload...
