* List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Tank has never been treated. Newest addition (two months ago) had a month long QT with three rounds of Prazi at .3 % salt. Kappa was treated with salt and Prazi last August, three rounds.

* Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? Seems to be turning orange. I don't really think that's a sign of illness, but i thought I'd mention it anyways. I notice what seem like tiny whispy things on his gill flaps. I may just be paranoid, but it seems like he is having trouble breathing.

* Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Bottom sitting, constantly gasping

Please help! I'm really worried about kappa.

@Mikey- I looked at Helen's gender post (at least I think it was helens??) and im pretty sure he is male.

@fantailfan1- Okay, I can do that. But how do I measured out Prazi amounts? I have the powder Prazi and had the hardest time measuring it when I treated Eleazar. He was probably wayyy overdosed. :(

@jenzaar- I'll try to post more pictures ;) Thanks for the goodwill!

Pics from above please. Do you have meds for it?

No. I only have the Prazi, normal salt and Epsom salt. I think my brother has anaflaxin or something like that.

I couldn't get a good picture, I'm sorry. I hope you can see in the video. It is very slight.

I think you're right. Would you be able to get metronidazole (Seachem metroplex) and kanamycin (Seachem kanaplex)? You'd either need to get them at a locally owned pet store or order online . . .

Add Epsom at 1/2 tsp per 5 gallons please.
