scoobie i ask Sakura to help you. I am finding conflicting information on the medication that you using. I was thinking to recommend another medication for the treatment. Not sure if you can go to the store and exchange it? Lets wait for Sakura's opinion. It would be easier if you could make a new thread so we can talk there.
Also what are those white specs you talking about? Are those on his body or in the water?
Can you make a thread so both of us and Sakura can talk there?
Meanwhile if you think he is a little better behaviorwise or his appearance continue with medications. Just make sure its not expired and do not overdose.
Please keep me informed. Do daily water changes even with medications. Just redose the required dose after each water change. And how i understand you do not using a filter , am i right?
He is on his second dose of jungle lifeguard all-in-one treatment and I added 1 tbs of aquarium salt. I removed all the gravel out of his 10 gallon tank filled his tank half-full I have him in a Floating cup. I'm starting to see some white specs I did get him to eat too small flakes today he still hasn't pooped his color looks a little better but he wouldn't eat Pea. I have his temperature at 82° he's laying in his bowl and less I tap it he wont swim. It's almost like he started with swim bladder when he would eat he would float sideways, then after a few hours he was fine. now i think the ich is starting to surface. I moved my guppies to a 5 gallon tank and am treating them as well...any other suggestions? If you get a chance please look at the photos in my album. I have pics from yesterday and today...what do you think
scoobie if you still using ES you need to use full dose. If he is getting worse you really need medications. If you can not buy medications then use full dose of the salt which is 3 tsp/gall with daily water changes.
