Hey Lupin, my main tank is going a bit crazy and may have stemmed from a major overfeeding to prevent my catfish from eatting my danios until I got them a new home. I noticed that one of the danios started to get a white spot on his mouth and moved them to quarantine with the other fish, but didn't adapt well and moved him back. Outstanding, the white spot in the mouth disappeared during the hour or two treatment. Then, I noticed my dwarf goarumi started to develop a cloudy eye with either a white fuz or white slime on the exterior. Moved him to the Q tank, as he faired better for an hour, he started to display spazzed movements after a few hours in the Q tank and returned him back to the main tank. Soon later, he lost his voluntary control and died soon after. It looks like I can't quarantine anymore fish after the salt treatments has started because of the accuminlated salt. Which brings me to the next question...is there a limit to the salt conc in the water as what you have prescribed looks like an increase of salt every 12 hours with 10 additional tps of salt for a 10 gallon? I was doing 25% water changes everyday.
Now the original fish came back to the main and not sure if the cyst gone, but it kind of looks like it...but have to see if the cyst regenerates as it has been regenerating and falling off quickly. Sadly though, I just noticed this same fish developing a slight cloudy eye same as my passed dwarf gourami. Not sure what's going on or what kind of infection this is...either bacterial or fungal. My plants seemed to have been hurting and stunted growth and major fall out with the java moss while the anubius is growing since the overfeeding. On top of that, I noticed there's like a white and red film sporadic over the driftwood...not sure if that is related with the sick fish. The water conditions seems normal with an ammonia and 5in1 test strip. But now will be doing daily 25% water changes on the main tank with gravel to try to normalize the situation. Any thoughts on what I should do about the cloudy fish eye?
Thanks in advance.
