Not to me, but to be fair I'm not sure where you mean. 

Just had another look at him & taken some top shots for you.

I know you are. I'm just so happy that there's a bit of light at the end of the tunnel, I didn't want there to be 'something else' crop up.

Don't want to jinx it!! :doh11:

You & me both!! It's been soooooooo long!

Was all good this morning before I left for work - no changes since last night. I'll check again when I get home while I swap him over to his other tub and update with pics. Likely to be in about 3 hours or so...

Yep. Spoke too soon...

Small red patch at base of left gill plate. Hard to capture in photo. 

Everywhere else looks good still. Just gone into 50% main tank water & 25 drops.

Red patch I spotted yesterday has pretty much disappeared. Weird. I swear he's doing it on purpose!

Still at 50% main tank water & 25 drops.

Also, that blood spot in his tail seems to be getting bigger. Is it a case of it'll get worse before it gets better or is there something sinister causing it? If so, what would create a build up of blood like that?

Possibly. I'm sure it's getting bigger though. Is that to be expected?

I know you're probably talking in the back, but just wanted to let you know what meds I have on hand, just in case :(

Kanaplex, Metroplex, Sulfaplex, Focus, Triple Sulfa, Furan-2, salt, epsom salt, Oxymav-B , Acriflavine, silver & Fluke Solve

Think that's it.

Sorry, I'm being thick - minimum amount? Do you mean 0.1% or 1.0% 

Do you also want me to continue with a) silver @ 25 drops and b) main tank water?

.1% for now... We just want it to help heal up that tail :)

and yes please. Is your main tank looking clear and healthy?

Main tank parameters taken last night were;

Ammonia - 0 ppm

Nitrite - 0ppm

Nitrate - 10ppm

pH - 8.2

Last WC - Sunday - 90 litres

Next WC - tonight, 60 litres

Piggy still looks and acts normal. He still has his dark patches which you though were age spots. One of them is slightly raised - not in a pineconed way, think how your finger nail looks if you bashed it with a hammer!! Lol! Kinda looks like it's going to drop off, but as yet it hasn't.

I was wondering if I should maybe dose the main tank with Fluke Solve in prep for Winston returning. Last round was in October.

I did spot what I thought were flukes on Sunday during the WC (although I've never seen a fluke before, so who knows). I found two of them and they were tiny, about 2mm across and transparent with a black bit in the centre. They were both on the glass, not Piggy (had a good search on him, but he appears clear). Note: they weren't moving and didn't move when I 'caught' them.

So no... maybe the answer is the main tank isn't looking clear & healthy :no:
