Dang! It is so sad. This is just so unfair that this is happening to your poor fish and all the stress that it is causing you :(  I hope the last one does make it! Don't give up, I know you are doing your best. We are here for you ;)

Aw I'm so sorry for all your losses, I hope that this last little guy makes it

 

 

Thank you, thank you very much, Jim, Fish of Gold, Mandy!

 

Thank you Fish of Gold for your wonderful words.

 

This is the best thing I like about Kokos, over all other forums (be it fish related or be it others); I feel like a part of a big family here, which spans the globe. :D

 

You all are so amazing!

 

This is Lloyd today. (How's the name?) ;)

Lloyd is a great name and a beautiful fish.  He's still in heat and salt?

Thanks, Susanne! Yes, he's at 32-33C now, and with 0.2% salt.

Just triple checking, the salt has the ingredients listed as only salt/sea salt, correct? :peeka

No additives, listed as "mineralised", or iodine?

Best of luck, keep going little fishy!

Thanks to you, Milkybun!

 

The shopkeeper says that the salt is simply purified sea salt. That means it contains NaCl + other salts as well, just like in the sea.

 

The salt is naturally hygroscopic and forms lumps, so no anti-caking agent is added.

It tested negative for iodine and YPS.

 

Glad that Lloyd made it another day :) I like the name Lloyd for your fish ;)

Hehe, thanks a lot, Fish of Gold! :) Lloyd says thanks to you all!

This is so unfair, really.  I logged on hoping to hear good news from you, so I'll take little Lloyd still swimming around right now as good news :)  Keep it up and my fingers are crossed over here.  And I love the name <3

I hope your little buddy is still OK and I feel so sorry for the other ones, but this seemed like a really serious outbreak there... Seemed so bad in your first video...

I hope everything turns out OK!!

Hang in there Lloyd!!

Indeed. Ich outbreaks have always been extremely serious because of the heat resistant strains over here. Even 30C is insufficient to speed up their life-cycle, can you imagine?

 

Thank you for your wishes, Stratos. :)

Thank you, hun! :D

 

Looking good!  Keep up with the salt and heat.  :D

 

Nice name too.  :teehee

 

Yup! Thanks so much!

 

All the very best in your endeavours for saving this little fish Bagho.

 

Many, many thanks for your good wishes, brother! :D

Today's update:

 

Today morning, Lloyd showed some signs of secondary bacterial infection: Subtle swelling of belly and bulging eyes. By evening, the belly had turned reddish. He was also reluctant to food.

 

I think his weakened and wounded body caused by ich, has made him prone to bacterial infections.

 

I am giving him a Ciprofloxacin bath now. Planning to continue it for 10-14 days if he pulls through.

Poor Lloyd...

 

I really wish him and you the best!!

Thanks so much, Stratos! :)

 

Aww Poor Lloyed. Sending him healing  thoughts x3

Thank you very much, Mandy! :)

 

By God's ample grace, Lloyd has responded positively to the antibiotic. He has regained his appetite, and other signs of infection are diminishing.

Great update video! He looks very energetic ;)

Thanks so much. By the way, Fish of Gold, your goldfishes are really cute! So is their names.

 

I'll name my unnamed goldfishes after your goldfishes' names! :D

He looks SO much better. Coloration and activity, both. Woohoo!

 

 

Thank you! All because of God's blessings and the healing vibes and good wishes from you wonderful people.
