Well, it seems a miracle may have occured. The fish in my friends tank that looked like it was dead in hours, is still alive. The fish in question was literally laying on the bottom of the tank and not wanting to move at all. The other fish were picking at it and I thought it best to euthanize but... the fish is now swimming and ate a little food. Still not itself but I did see it posture when the other fish thought about coming by it, which to me is a sign of serious improvement. I still see some specs hanging on this poor fish but the physical improments are uplifting to say the least.

I know that I have on occasion lost a few fish but to lose a whole tank would be mind bobbling. I suspect if that were to happen,, she would be done with fish forever. I don't know what started this as the tank those fish are in is never too dirty. At least not that I have ever noticed.

Coppersafe was the medication of choice. I wonder how long she should continue with it? It is expensive to do a large tank with the major water changes also needed.
