Once a day everyday :) yappers...

 

Well there you go :rofl 

 

I would like you to put in 10 drops :)  Everyday :) for 3 days let me know how he does everyday hun... Photos if you can :) 

Ok, salt dip @ 0.1% everyday for 3 days (1g per litre).

10 drops of silver into QT. I'm doing 100% WC every 2 days so just redose the 10 each time. 

Right?

Ah, ok.

I did the 100% WC last night. I'll take some photos tonight before adding the first dose of silver & doing the salt dip (which I guess is for 5 mins, all being well).

Then I'll take some more photos in the morning.

The next WC will be tomorrow (Wednesday) - do I just add in 10 drops or 20 (to account for the 10 I remove)? Then on Thursday add another 10 bringing him to 30 drops total?

Sorry....having a thick day. Again! :teehee

I think someone misplaced a decimal point somewhere.  Salt dips start at 1%, and that just serves to ease the fish into a higher concentration dip.  Dipping the fish in 0.1% salt would have no more effect than dipping it in clean water.

I did wonder this, but Koko confirmed 0.1%. I also queried if all 3 dips should be at 0.1%.

Koko - can you clarify for me please? Do you mean 0.1% or 1.0% and should I carry out 3 dips @ the same percentage or increase them?

Also, can you confirm the silver process please (as in my head, 10 drops for 3 days would take me up to a 30 drop concentration). See below...

OK, thanks.

So adding silver tonight - 10 drops. WC change tomorrow, add another 10 drops. Add 10 more on Thursday (which will mean by Thursday night he'll have 20 drops in the QT)

Salt - first dip tonight at 1.0% (10g per litre). Another dip tomorrow & Thursday - also at 1.0%

Will report with pics as I go.

Ha ha!! More questions...

4 times or 3? 

Salt always at 1.0%?

lets do 4 times and lets do 3 dips at 1% and the last one at 2% if he will take it. :)

Taken this morning - approx. 14hrs after 1st salt & silver.

The redness has pretty much cleared from the spot on his right under his dorsal (still evident though), but wen & belly look worse.

I want you to not do the Salt any more hun... Instead.. A water change every day with 15 drops of silver :) 

OK, I don't have any water prepped for a WC today, so I'll have to start tomorrow I'm afraid. I'll up the dosage of silver to 15 though (he had 10 last night, so the QT will be at 25 drops by tonight).

Do you want this doing for a specific length of time, or shall I just update everyday, and see how we go?

Can I ask why you want the salt stopping? What has it done or not, as the case may be?

is there a heater?

Yes. QT is running at 25.5 degrees.

Photos taken this morning...couple of new red spots on the bottom of right cheek

I want to go at least a week hun. Just keeping an eye out on him :)

I been reading and I believe the salt isn't doing a bit of good right now, just stressing him. Also I would like you to slowly turn down that heat to the point of no heat. Heat can make bacteria grow faster. We want it to a crawl and let the Silver kick in the Booty :)

Okey dokey.

At what rate should I reduce the temp? 1*C a day?

Note: no heat will result in temp being approx. 18*C. Is this ok or too low?
