Well he's certainly hungry enough. He will eat two types of pellets, a flake food, brine shrimp and mysis shrimp. I picked up this herbal antibacterial stuff at the LFS to help with his fins. Still looking a little ragged but he's swimming much more and not showing any signs of whatever was ailing him. Only problem with the antibacterial stuff is it kills any biological filter and I can't use activated carbon because that removes it so I have to do at least a 25% water change daily to keep good water quality. Kind of a pain but I'm only using it a couple days.

Well at this point I would consider this a complete recovery. His fins are almost all healed up now. The only ones that haven't fully healed are the his lower pectoral fins. Just a little bit more to go. However the best part is with him all on his own I've been able to get him eating really well and I can actually almost hand feed him now. I think I definitely underestimated the value of a quarantine tank.

Very happy ffor you.I want to add some info,in a qt tank there is almost no bacteria anyway only because there is no filter and only water from the display tank.so if you use medication on the qt it will kill of any bacteria but by the time the new cycle tries to start after he meds have done there job the fish should already be back in the display.also I'm very happy you cured ur lil friend I just went threw some thing similar it really sucks.

Ah, but you don't know if he would have made a full recovery just being left alone, do we.

Nope we don't...I suppose there's a good possibility he may have. Admittedly I panicked so its hard to say now. I think being on his own though was very helpful and had I put him in there from the start it would have saved the catching at least. Its a learning experience that's for sure. I think in another week or so I'll put him back in the display. He's actually turned out to be a really docile friendly little guy. I think if I really tried I could get him to eat out of my hand.
