    I didn't know what I was dealing. I treated him with aquarium salt and that seemed to work for two days. Then it all went down hill so fast that I almost euthanized him because he was in pain.

    It was a baby placo. Think I can kill the bacteria with bleach

    I doubt it was TB, all your other fish would be dead too if it were. It was probably some different bacteria is all. What kind of algae eater?

    Aww your sassy dude is dead? I just lost my double tail half moon to dropsy or tb. I put a new alge eater in my five gallon tank and he was sick.

    No I'm not sure it's velvet. I would take a picture of him but he still is active

    Water conditioner alone does not cure fin rot. Are you sure it was fin rot?

    And no, AQ salt will barely do anything for Velvet, and just want to make sure; are you sure it is velvet and not his normal iridescence?

    I already put him in the 1.5 gallon hospital tank which I did a 100% water change to before putting my poor boy in. He is still eating and active. I would take a picture but he is still like the energizer bunny. When I came home from my trip, I found him sick and with a bit of fin rot. But thanks to this awesome water conditioner I used, his fin rot is gone.

    Velvet is a nasty disease so I wouldn't spend much on herbal or minimal treatments. You want to nip it in the butt as quick as you can, I use Cupramine by SeaChem with amazing results; very easy to dose too. 1 drop per gallon the first day and the bottle has the rest of the treatment. While you treat them, best to bump their heater temperature up to 86 if you can and throw a towel/blanket over their tank. Not only does it keep them calm but it helps prevent velvet from multiplying; which is what you DON'T want them to do!
