In addition to his wen 'rash' there's a small pin-head sized spot on his belly. No other changes that I can see.

New spot on dorsal & he's lost another scale on left hand side (found it this time!). 

Spot on belly has gone - he wouldn't let me take a pic though so you'll just have to take my word for it I'm afraid. 

Top of wen & tail still the same. Red bit at the back of his wen seems to have cleared though.

Wen rash reduced slightly I think. 

Spot on belly hasn't reappeared (crap picture, sorry). 

Spot on dorsal has nearly disappeared - more a pin prick now & no longer red, more brown/black, but barely there.

Just gone into 5th dose at 25 drops. Wen improved. No other spots. 

We have lost another scale on LHS though which looks worse than in photo tbh.

Wen good. Belly good. Sides good (missing scales aside). Tail still the same. 

Question - are we looking for the tail/fins to be tip top before we consider him for the main tank?

In my tank I do about 8 drops once a month. I do it before a water change the next day :)

OK, my WC change is tonight, so missed the chance this time. Next one is on Friday, so I'll dose tomorrow.

Will 8 drops be about right for my tank (240ish litres)?

Also, and I know we're not quite there yet, but do I need to acclimatise him before adding back to main tank? Should I add a bit of the main tank water to his QT? When should I start increasing the temperature back up to main tank level? Want to be sure I'm doing it all properly - don't want to take one step forwards and two steps back by making silly mistakes! :doh11:

Is your main tank heated? 

Yes that will be fine, you could even dose now :)

I would add some of the main water to his tank :)

No, not heated, but running at approx. 25*C. QT is fluctuating between 21.5 - 22.5*C (unheated, but it's been pretty warm here the last couple of days).

I'll add tonight after the WC then.

What %age of main water would you add to the QT and should I start today? Should I increase the amount I add each day?

OK, keep it at 20% then? Not increase it over time?

Is the temp ok or does that need raising also?

Will update with pics in a couple of hours when I get home...

I would do 20% then go to 50%, No do worry about the temp as we are going to float the guy in a bag before letting him in the tank :)

Still at 25 drops in QT, now with 20% main tank water. Will increase by 10% daily until 50:50. 

Main tank has had WC & I've added 8 drops of silver.
