Merry Christmas!! you're a great fish keeper, one of the best. thank you for all of your wonderful advice that you gave me for Merlin when I was a new member, he's doing great, all healed up and flaring like crazy. :)
I'm very sorry about Dean Winchester. Poor little fellow. I can't believe teenagers (or anyone for that matter) would do such a thing. you gave him the best chance of living possible, and I'm very glad that he didn't pass in that tiny cup. hope you're well, ~Saphira
I started using lifeguard and I'm treating for ich. I looked at the label again and it can be used for a variety of things: tail, fin, and mouth rot, ich, fungus, and hemorrhagic septicemia. it seems to be fairly mild, as it can be used as a disease preventative when adding new fish to your tank, not just when they're sick. Merlin is actually starting to perk up a bit, not sitting on the bottom as much anymore and swimming around his tank, almost like he's bored. if I walk into the room, he swims up to greet me.
