Peaches Isn't Acting Right (QT)

Recommended Posts

In my opinion I think MMs are too old. Even if you felt it was stored well, the food may have gone rancid which could contribute to more bloating.

I agree - fortunately I don't think it's going to cause problems in this case since Peaches appears to be improving. I highly recommend tossing them after this treatment though, okay Mikey?

shes more pine coned :/ but she's eating well. Should I continue with the metro meds and then half dose the waterborne meds?

Continue dosing at normal strength for the metromeds - do not double up.

You may consider euthanizing her if the antibiotics and Epsom salt aren't getting on top of the swelling. Finish out the current course and we can evaluate. You're dosing the kanaplex still in be water with the metromeds right?

no, I thought I was just treating with the metro meds? I didn't know I was supposed to be dosing the kana with that :cry 

 

I didn't want to double the metro meds I was wondering if with the metro meds if I should be half dosing the powder metro into the water.

The metromeds are getting old and don't hold up as well as dry metro powder over time but if she *was* eating you could dose that instead.

The two waterborne meds together are easier to manage for me, but what matters is hitting this infection hard and fast before she succumbs to it. So whichever metro you prefer you can dose, but if she isn't eating I'd recommend sticking with powdered.

 

 

You have to be dosing both.  That was why I recommended getting more metro powder in addition to your Kanaplex - she needs the synergism of both weds to be helpful. To clear up any confusion here are my recommendations one last time:

 

1. Add  back in the Kanaplex, expired or not. If you have done several days already let me know so I can adjust the schedule.

 

2. Dose the metromeds for her bodyweight OR the metro powder act two measures per ten gallons. We need 14 days of treatment total before we switch this up. 

 

3. Have your epsom at 1 tsp per 10 gallons of water.

 

Got it?

I switched to metro meds because she was eating. I'll add back the kana now though. 

 

okay so that.s .2 grams per day? she weighs 20 grams

 

yes, I'll up it the extra half teaspoon :)

 

I think so!

Yes.  If feeding metromeds we do not want to add the powder.  But we do need tho kana powder in there.

shes normal I think lol. It might just be the angle I took the picture at. I haven't take out my DSLR in a while. I'm going to be taking some pictures after I clean my tank and plants and maybe some reorganizing and some new plants lol
