I'm with you in hoping that the powder arrives in time to do him some good - any idea of an arrival date for it yet? I guess moving him is out of the question? I just wonder if he'd feel any more comfortable on his own for a bit in a dark environment without any other fish around. I guess at this point it really doesn't matter - it's not the stress, it's the illness - and a move might stress him more anyway. *sigh* I just wish I could help him!

As for Little Miss Krib. . . that is odd. I wonder if it's a matter of the color/brightness of the lighting reflecting on her scales, as opposed to an actual paling/darkening of the fish itself? As she gets to the bottom, and the light is filtered through the green of the leaves, maybe it's reflected differently to our eyes? I dunno. . . I don't know anything about Kribs, but she's pretty! Is she okay so far? She seems well to me - any sign of our ugly parasitic friends bothering her?

. . .my poor little Burt. . .
*cries*
I thought about moving him....and I redid the 20 and it would be perfect for him but at this point it would spread the parasite and it would stress him to be moved so I think it would do much more harm than good. Like you said.

The parasite on the Molly has reduce to just one, although that one is very long.

Burt has three parasites up his butt now all which are shorter than the mollies. He has this fuzz that is stuck to the parasites from something.

The Kribensis is the tank of the tank. She just eats and eats. No sign of infection.

As for the tetras about 80% of them have it and the others ones seem fine.

The Cories still seem ok.

As for the other tanks and the fungus issue, everyone seems to have healed fine and I will be doing one last dose of the meds for the fungus today.

Good luck Termato. These are notoriously hard worms so I wish you all the best with your fishies. I understand how hard it is watching them and wishing, hoping, they would just eat a tiny bit of the medicated food. :(

When they eat, it's good because the more waste they produce, the more worms they can push out. Good for little miss krib!

Excellent! The low lighting will go far in helping him rest and recover. . . It is just so good to see the Ol' boy with some color! Poor thing has been so pale. . .
