Piggy - dark patches, acne & lumpy scale

Out of interest, we have a jar of this in the cupboard - http://www.verylazy.com/products/chopped-ingredients/very-lazy-chopped-garlic/

The ingredients say White Wine Vinegar (contains Sulphur Dioxide) & Dried Garlic - would the juice be safe to use for soaking food in (thinking it may help boost Piggy's immune system)?

I have never used White Wine Vinegar on my fish I have no idea :o

Mine is just water phosphoric acid and garlic :)

@koko - if/when you think he's ready to go back in the main tank, should I reduce the salt in his QT in stages (0.3 > 0.2 > 0.1 > 0.0) or can it be done in one go during a 100% WC?

If it was me I would do 2 water changes of 50%.. Thats just me :)

I've been doing bucket-to-bucket though, that's why I was asking. Perhaps I should reduce gradually then?

Hmmm....do you think it would be an issue then? :huh:

It might I really don't know since I have been using mine. You could also crush some garlic up and use that :)

I could, but I'm lazy - hence the jar of lazy garlic!! :teehee

Perhaps there's an alternative on the UK market that's like yours and only contains water, phosphoric acid & garlic. I'll have a look next time I'm shopping.

Hey, less of the old!! :teehee

What do you think? Keep going at 0.3% or start to reduce down with a view to getting him in the main tank over the weekend?

Only been back in for half an hour or so, but I think he's ok. 

I'm the one with issues! I'm super paranoid - watching him like a hawk and questioning everything he's doing. OMG - did you just flick? What the hell is that? Is that fungus? Are those spots I see? It's exhausting!
