(Possible) Hemorrhagic Septicemia

Recommended Posts

Update: Started Metroplex yesterday. I mixed 125mg to his frozen blood worms and fed him while I took out 100% of his tank water. Then I put 250mg of Metroplex on his 10 gallon tank. Will be doing water changes and re-dosing after 48 hours.

The red spot was gone on his underbelly but now there is like a boil where the zit used to be.

Today, there was a lot of poop of various consistency. He is more active.

Sorry for the late reply but it was one heck of a weekend. All but 5 of our shrimp died, then I had to put down my runty ranchu :(

The boil on his underside is gone but the wound near the tail has gotten worse. Still gently dabbing it with H2O2 each time I drain his tank.

This wound appeared before I started him on metroplex.

He is now on his 3rd dose (6 days) of metroplex and so far no new zit or wounds have popped out.

You should not be dabbing the wound each time you remove him. It won't heal well if you do that. You may dab it with Iodine frequently, but not Hydrogen Peroxide. 

Sorry for the losses.

Thanks MJ. I'll keep that in mind. Uninformed noob here , plus I've been kinda edgy with all these crazy stuff happening to our fish family.

Well, Elton (yellow tamasaba) is on his 4th dose of Metroplex. No new wound or zits. He's finished a week of metro and he has two more weeks to go.

 

Looking to rehome the last four red cherry shrimp we have, might take them to the LFS a block away from our apartment.

 

I moved Poke (tiny pearlscale) to the 75 gallon and she's been fine for a week now. My boy keep asking me about Bullit and I told him he's in one of the flower pots in my M-I-L's. Told him we'll plant something nice on it.

 

Thanks for checking up on us, I really appreciate you guys.

Elton's on his 7th dose of Metroplex. No new wounds, red sore or zit. Everything is healed aside for a few missing scales. I also have not seen a single one of that planaria/poop-looking worm thing that I suspect is causing his issues on him or in the tank.

 

So 4 more doses and we're done with Metroplex. Hope he continues to recover.

 

Thanks for the support guys.
