best of luck in treatment..
I still have my first tank (for Long Island that is) and it is only a small plastic one gallon. Small heater and filter.
You have it figured out: use water from original tank. If I ever need a hospital tank, I will simply siphon water from the old tank into the little tank and treat it there.

Thanks. My fish is still being treated with the meds. So far she has yet to eat but she is swimming about normally. Fingers crossed she eats soon. If she does I'll know we will have turned the corner.

I was wondering just yesterday how your sick fish may be doing there. Hopefully all will start looking up soon!!!!

Well, *knock wood* things are looking better. She started eating as of yesterday. She's still scary skinny but I can now see a "slight" belly to her and she's no longer holding her fins clamped. This morning her poo looked like normal discus poo. I'm not out of the woods with her yet but as least now I have a reason to feel somewhat hopeful.

Had you ever looked up whisking up spinach & garlic? Supposedly that stimulates health quite some for them buggers; I have pers not tried it but will soon start cooking for my fish too and see how they like it (I mean heck I already cook for hubby & dogs why not them too lol)

I had already tried soaking her food in Seachems Garlic Guard and she wanted nothing to do with it.
Whisking up spinach and garlic? What's the exact recipe??
