    Medication Expirience Part 2
    2nd day i put another human anti bacterial Clarithromycin 250 mg (medicine of my kids 3yrs old :liquid type) i put it in a cup almost 5 drops mixed with water then dissolved and apply to may 20 gal tank.
    Result: my two paroon totally healed and now healthy including their tank mates oscar albino bala shark tinfoil barb. Parrot and other live fish for feeding purposes (guppies)
    Under medication i replace almost 15 percent of water every day.
    i am not suggesting human antibacterial, ill used it because anti bacterial for fish is not available in my country.

    Medication experience Part 1
    My paroon become sick i see a lot of ich in their skin and fin rot their skin is become salty look. i expect that my paroon dye after 4 or 5 days. i search for medication. ill only find Ocean free general medication. in two days i see the result, its healed but not all there is left in their skin. they called resistant ich. so i search for antibacterial but the problem not available in my country so i try human anti bacterial erythromycin 500mg 1 capsule and apply to 20 gal i dissolve this first to a water then testing first, i put some guppy to small tank and place small amount of medicine if they die but they did not die.

    MY paroon is now Eating when light is out
    i switch my observation at night'' no light is on. everything is dark i have only one led light or very small flashlight to limit the light. i notice that the behavior of paroon change at night it becomes a monster. A normal swimming at night become hunter swimming when light is out i don’t know how they can see without light.
    i observed they ate what they encounter, from meat that i give to live fish. Then i see their stomach is big. And so big i thought they die because of too much food. But they vomit excess food in their stomach. that is why every morning i saw dead fish with form in 30 degree angle body something is swallow and out again.
    sometimes paroon not eat becuase of stress or stress cause by medication
    the following day i control feeding.

    My Paroon Experience
    Now i acquire 2 paroon 3 to 4 inches for only 300.00 pesos or only $6.00 dollar USD there. i notice the other one is balloon shape. i place it in 20 gal tank only 36 inches L x 18 inches H x 10 inches W. My paroon not eat for 3 weeks. when i feed my paroon they swim away from food and panic, but i know paroon eat anything. i gave them fresh food from my refrigerator. Small slice meat pork/slice fish meat /sinking pellet/floating /frozen crab stick meat/fish balls nuggets fish flavor/or live guppy fish. but he swim away and don’t eat.

    My ID shark Experience
    i give my 3 inches id shark to my friend and place it to 5 gallon tank only and it was 6
    years ago, until now the fish is alive. the fish only grow to 8 inches only. he only feed sinking pellet.
    the price of ID shark that is 3 to 4inches = 25.00 pesos or $0.45 USD only.
    ID shark is very easy to handle but take note that this fish is nervous type fish and fast swimmer so dont make them nervous it may hit your tank wall and display that resulting to serious injuries.
