Oooooh.... Exciting!!

You're going to have to walk me through this I'm afraid.

Do I need to remove the salt from QT beforehand (i.e. decrease the salt over next few days before he can go in) or is that no real biggie?

We are just going to reduce it down to .1% for a day before we move him.

I have the bag to float him in. Do i need to add main tank water to it every so often? How long should I float him for?

I would like you to float him for 20 mins, only letting the tank water come in twice... every 10 mins :)

How soon after can I start the FS/metro?

I would give them both a day before doing it.. Let them both get some rest :)

Sorry, never reintroduced after QT before. Yet another lesson for me!

I would like you to put silver drops right on those red spots... :) If you can. Try and hold him out of the water where you have silvered for just a quick min just enough for it to soak in a little before the water washes it off :)

Ok. How many drops per spot? And just the belly & wen or tail as well?

Am I continuing with silver at 25 drops in the water too?

Should I reduce the salt to 0.1% today or leave at 0.2% for now?

Ok all done. He's in 50% main tank water, 25 drops of silver & 0.1% salt.

Did you mean hold him out for a full minute to let the silver soak in? Only managed 15-20 seconds with each one before he totally flipped out! He wasn't having any of it.

Ok, 2nd round of direct silver completed. He's not happy with me at all - he's sulking at me. 

Now in 50% main tank water, 0.1% salt & 25 drops. 

I'd like to move him on Friday morning if that's ok - it's a public holiday here that day so I'll be at home to observe him properly. I can then do my WC on Saturday then start the FS & metro. 

With that in mind, do you want me to do the direct dose of silver again tomorrow (Thurs)? And keep him at 50% MTW, 25 drops & 0.1% salt until he goes in?

Photos taken just now, prior to direct silver... Excuse the mess - he had seaweed for dinner!

Tail looks improved slightly to me.

Ok, so as of an hour ago, he's back in the main tank with Piggy. There's been a little nudging & nipping by Piggy, but things have calmed down somewhat now. Winston is doing a bit of bottom sitting every now & then - think it may all be a bit much for him. I've left the lights off for today just while he settles. I've also seen some yawning every so often.

What do you suggest ref. feeding today? As normal or nothing & let them settle? They both had a small breakfast of Repashy first thing.

I'll be doing my WC tomorrow & dosing with FS. Metro will follow on Sunday. 

Should I remove the Wonder Shell for the duration on treatment?

Yeah I think he's stressed :(

And we're off! Just dosed the FS. 

Winston has a couple of weird protrusions on left lateral line & some on right near his bottom. The look like small pimples. Completely white so difficult to spot/photograph. I'm pretty sure they're not scales raising at the edges, but I'm not entirely sure. No sign of pineconing when viewed from above (he doesn't stay still long enough to photograph on my crappy iPhone).

He also has a couple of marks on his belly - one of which is slightly raised.

As well as the blood spot, his tail is still spotty/opaque.

I've turned the flow down on the FX6 slightly as he doesn't appear to cope with it very well & I don't want to raise his stress levels any higher.

Will be dosing the Metro tomorrow then doing my WC on Monday followed by the next FS dose. 

Just so I'm completely clear - I'm changing 60 percent water each time, not 60 litres right?

Hello!

Sorry, I've not disappeared.

Completed FS, Metro,WC & FS, Metro so far. Will carry out WC & FS this evening.

Tail, I think, is improved - that is to say the red patch has reduced slightly.

This morning he had a rash on his wen. Wasn't there last night.

I'll update again later when I'm home with tail pics, but here are the wen shots taken this morning...
