I as well LOVE the sign. I hope you keep it forever!!!!!

Glad to hear the fish are doing better!

Just to throw in my two cents... even though it looks as though the tablets have worked for you, I have often been told that liquid meds are typically more effective than the fizzy tablet type of meds. I have used both, and really couldn't tell you which one worked better... but since being told so many times that liquid is better, I've switched to all liquid meds. Again, just my two cents, based on little more than hearsay... :D

Thanks - when I was 'stocking up' for the new (tropical fish) venture, I wanted to have some basic meds on hand and tank buddies fungus/ick was on the shelf. Seems like trouble often comes nights and weekends when it's good to have first aid kit on hand. In this case I waited and actually did stop at a LPS and got some Ick Out liquid med. It was when I got home that the molly's white spots were enlarged and somewhat fuzzy and the other molly had similar 'spots' - so what first looked like ick, now looked more like injury/fungus. I'm blaming the male that has been chasing and pecking at them~
(I'm a guy [old, but not dead] and I appreciate the interest, but jeez...give 'em a break!)

Anyway, in this case, I'm pretty impressed with the tank buddies fizzy tab fungus med after seeing positive results in 24 hours, so knock wood, it seems to have done the trick.
I will however, look at getting some other meds to have on hand.

I'm also glad that for the cost of another heater, I had the old 5g tank to use as the hospital tank. Makes a sitch like this much better than treating a 60g tank!

Also, I have some Jungle Start Right on hand, which like Stress Coat, aids in maintaining/healing the slime coat/minor injuries - I think I may begin using in the main tank.

Father Knows Best but Abbey knows everything! I once knew everything, then I asked one question.

what an odd statement... "Warning: This product contains a chemical known to the state of California to cause cancer."

Almost everything is 'known to the state of California to cause cancer' - or at least I've seen this kind of warning on many, many products. Besides, I just put the fizzy tab in fish water, I didn't ingest it!!!
"Plop plop fiz fiz oh what a relief it is!"
