  1. 2 weeks of metro(powder), triple sufla & epsom.. (12 days to be exact) Where to find oxytetracycline ??
  2. If there's not feedback from the mod team please let me know.. I posted a video of metro-triplesufla "after treatment" 3 days ago and no one has mention any alternatives I think she's getting worse She's isolating herself and showing some signs of dropsy.. May I ask.. why didn't we do a kana treatment to begin with when it is known that popeye is one of the first signs of dropsy ???? (as per, kokos goldfish disease page)
  3. Hospital tank is 10G so i did 2 scoops of Metroplex every other day along w a packet of triple sufla (every other day) and Epsom
  4. kanaplex, metroplex, bifuran, triplesufla, reg. salt, epsom, prazipro, aquaprazi (powder), kana flakes (food), colloidal silver 500, metro flakes (food)
  5. Well.. this is what she looks like after a couple of weeks of (metro / triple sufla / epsom) treatment.. I personally don't see a difference (than before treatment) and the other eye looks similar (besides the coloration) too What you guys think ???
  6. Thank you and sorry for the delay (working out of town) Yes, it has been treated for flukes.. a year ago while QT and one round as preventative last this week Perhaps this videos explain better..
  7. I have had this (male) small ryukin/fantail mix for over a year. He eats until he cannot move. (piggy lil' thing) But he spends most of his life "full / belly up" or at the surface gulping for air. No symptoms of illness besides the soft belly.. definitely softer that the rest Even if I fast him, he still spends most of the day gulping for air
  8. I believe is not a sign of healthiness but.. what is the meaning of a (really) soft belly on a GF ? Thx!
  9. Thank you both.. How do you dose triple sufla??.. The package says to add a packet (per 10gal) every 24hr for 3 days then chance 25% water.. then repeat.. So am I understanding that 14 packets (2wks) will be accumulating in the 10G hospital with only 25%WC every 3 days ???..
  10. Knowing my circumstances.. Is there any feedback you guys can give me regarding the popeye ? It got bigger overnight so I think I should act soon Thanks,
  11. oh my.. you have just open my eyes to a lot of negligence.. That is a HUGE jump in nitrate each week! How often are you servicing your canister? Your sump? I was looking at my notes and I service the canister every 3months but the sump I havent touch in a year.. yuck! Are you sure your sump isn't an nitrate factory from mulm? Biofilm and algae are awesome. Detritus and decay built up is not. The other thing I want to know is your KH and GH - especially if you have calcium precipitating our I suspect high GH and not enough KH. GH is 300 and KH is way up there as well.. I misplaced the tester but I remember I had to add over 15 drops for the water (KH) to change colors Local water is super hard How much does your PH change overnight from the tap? PH change from 7.4 to 8.4 after degas (overnight/airstoned) and stays 8.4 thereafter What meds do you have on hand right now to handle the pop eye? kanaplex, metroplex, bifuran, triplesufla, reg. salt, epsom, prazipro, aquaprazi (powder), kana flakes (food), colloidal silver 500 What is this at the bottom left of the sump?? Calcium?? Normal algae, I think..? Scrubber seems to be working

  15. Thank you... What are the characteristics/features you look for in hexamita ?
  16. Thank you but this fish died weeks ago I opened this thread as "general GF discussion" for personal education but someone moved it here (I guess for relevance)
  17. For those who know.. Just wondering if this is what hexamita looks like ?? Pictures don't show what the fish looks like in person It had clear/white cysts all over - extra slime - the whole on the wen is really red Thank you,
  18. Yes sir.. it is in the 1st post "Nov 11: 100WC + 76g salt + Aqua prazi (redose)" 0.1% in case you wonder
  19. I'm not trying to convince anyone of what I see.. I have had this fish for the last 50 days, see it every day and I know when it behaves differently I am perhaps all wrong but the fish doesn't act neither it looks the same as when I got it I tried several times to take pictures but the phone doesn't pick "that stuff" up.. And it is not there right now anyway In regards the prazi.. you're right.. I have one full round on Sep 30 to Oct 7, then a couple of interrupted rounds (one because of dropsy and the other one I can't remember) but I continued them on Nov 2 as 7 day rounds (4 with prazi, 3 without)
  20. sorry for the late opinion... timezones work against me. i agree, i don't see anything wrong with the fish either. Surprising, but ok... I didn't know that a fish that acts lethargic all day, doesn't eat, gets white stuff hanging from its wen & body and gets fatter overnight was a sign of a healthy fish.. I learned something new today.. I guess this guy goes to the main tank once the prazi round is over.. Thank you all..!!

  23. Thank you girls.. The B&W butterfly is slowly improving. She's now eating small meals twice a day but the way she moves is still very clumsy (weak perhaps?) I really hopes she comes back
