What is wrong with Xena?

Recommended Posts

Hi There!

 My new Ranchu  Xena has been in QT for  3.5 weeks now with salt as indicated.

She has these small growths on her Wen which I thought might be pimples and go away on their own, no such luck!

A couple went black and now she also has a green shadow on her tails fins..

They have had Fluke solve as prevention and Kanaplex.  Week 1 + 2

When the white things appeared I did a touch of Pimafix. Week 3. Now just clean water.

I have found this in the filter : Please don't tell me that's fish lice ? http://tinypic.com/r/2mze9p3/9

What's going on and should I medicate?

Other fish fine and due to go in main tank this week.

All the fish are in the same tank and this is the only one having problems?

 

Will you post pics of the wen, tail and new red spots?

What on earth is that ladies ;( ?

And what do I do? 

I've only had her 3 weeks it can't be what I've done can it??

Should I move the other fish out of there to the main tank?

Yes, go ahead and treat the chu only (no the other fish) with that.

The tail looks like regrowth/healing.  No need to worry about that.

OK! Thanks so much ☺️??

Should I just follow the packet instructions or is there a special recommended Kokos way, like with the praziquantel rounds!?

I used it once before in combination with  Kanaplex a long time ago but it was in conjunction with prazi under jared's instructions for unidentified fish sickness!!

Package instructions  are: medicate (1 tablet to 22.5 L) day 1,2,3 water change on day 8 = 1 round.

I looked up some info on the med and it says it's active for up to 3 days after it's added.  So it would make more sense to me to add it day 1, 3 and 5.  I would medicate day 1 then do a 100% WC day 3 and medicate.  Then do a 100% WC day 5 and medicate.  It also said that external signs may take up to 7 days to improve so don't expect miracles right away. :D

I don't get why it's not just displaying the picture after putting in the code either- only way it works is if  I cut and paste- but now you can't see it- confused.com :(
