ok, thanks. im am going to my lfs today and i will ask for formalin and PROTOZIN - protozoacide, that you recommended and see which one they have in stock as i dont want to have to wait for things being delivered.

if i use the PROTOZIN, do i have to do the same thing, as in, change the water 48 hours in advance since i have already used salt?

the update is that i went to my local pet store and lfs and neither had formulin but my lfs did have protozin so i bought it. unfortunately when i got home it was too late for iain, one of my blue rams he now rests in a rennie tablets box filled with woodshavings for my hamster, and will be burried along with ceasar who rests, ironically, in an aquarium salt box filled with woodshavings.

i am fast beginning to think that rosie, another blue ram, may well be resting, again ironically, in the protozin box along with them

however, i did a large pwc and vaccumed the gravel vigourously and have added the protozin. i will be continuing this medication for 6 days and just have to hope for the best now really. i bought a surplus amount just incase.

thanks for your help everyone. i really appreciate it, and i will keep this post updated with the final, and intermediate outcome

the final update is that i have done a few searches and concluded that it was definitely the salt i added to get rid of the white spot that killed ceasar my pictus :( i feel like i have killed him now!

however, the good news is that although i lost ceasar and iain, my blue ram, everyone else is responding well to the protozin. only 3 fish are still infected with the spots and they are much better than they were.

id like to thank everyone for your help as i fear that without your help, more than just 2 of my fish would have died
