    Update: Sorry been out of the loop for a month. I broke my phone. I moved him back to the main tank last week. So far so good. Thanks for all the help. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

    Elton's on his 7th dose of Metroplex. No new wounds, red sore or zit. Everything is healed aside for a few missing scales. I also have not seen a single one of that planaria/poop-looking worm thing that I suspect is causing his issues on him or in the tank. So 4 more doses and we're done with Metroplex. Hope he continues to recover. Thanks for the support guys. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk Here's a video of him in a critter keeper (was deep cleaning his hospital tank) -

    Well, Elton (yellow tamasaba) is on his 4th dose of Metroplex. No new wound or zits. He's finished a week of metro and he has two more weeks to go. Looking to rehome the last four red cherry shrimp we have, might take them to the LFS a block away from our apartment. I moved Poke (tiny pearlscale) to the 75 gallon and she's been fine for a week now. My boy keep asking me about Bullit and I told him he's in one of the flower pots in my M-I-L's. Told him we'll plant something nice on it. Thanks for checking up on us, I really appreciate you guys. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

    Thanks MJ. I'll keep that in mind. Uninformed noob here [emoji2], plus I've been kinda edgy with all these crazy stuff happening to our fish family. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

    Sorry for the late reply but it was one heck of a weekend. All but 5 of our shrimp died, then I had to put down my runty ranchu The boil on his underside is gone but the wound near the tail has gotten worse. Still gently dabbing it with H2O2 each time I drain his tank. This wound appeared before I started him on metroplex. He is now on his 3rd dose (6 days) of metroplex and so far no new zit or wounds have popped out. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

    Update: Started Metroplex yesterday. I mixed 125mg to his frozen blood worms and fed him while I took out 100% of his tank water. Then I put 250mg of Metroplex on his 10 gallon tank. Will be doing water changes and re-dosing after 48 hours. The red spot was gone on his underbelly but now there is like a boil where the zit used to be. Today, there was a lot of poop of various consistency. He is more active. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk
  10. nano fish tank ideas needed

    How about some Opae Ula aka super shrimp aka Hawaiian shrimp. I heard they're pretty sturdy and hard to kill. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

    Yeah. Really don't know what I did wrong. Tanks are far away from each other; individual buckets and hoses which are stored separately to avoid cross contamination. Fed more moist food and greens, the floaty fish has been fed these stuff exclusively. Religious water changes and testing. I am losing my mind [emoji2] On top of that, family member who was supposed to take care of them this coming December when I go on a month trip decided to take a vacation on the same date lol. Now, I am really in a bind [emoji33] Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

    Thanks Shannon, He got another another one of those nasty bites near his tail. I dabbed it with H202 in hopes of disinfecting it. So with Metroplex, I would be following the dosage instructions of 250mg / 1 scoop per 10 gallon every 48 hours (2days). How much water shoud I changed during re-dose, would 20% be okay? Appreciate all the help ladies. Fishkeeping been a bummer for me lately, lost our betta last month, red cherry shrimps been dropping dead one by one and my runt ranchu is floaty again :(. It's driving me nuts. I am just glad I found you guys.

    Ladies, What would be ideal treatment plan with metro? Should I put it his water or feed it directly to him. How may days would you suggest, website list up to three weeks or until symptoms disappear. I bought 10 grams of Seachem Metroplex on E-bay and I wouldn't get it 'til Friday The fish is now back in 0.3% salt and no meds. I placed a bag of purigen and carbon yesterday after I did a 80% water change to get rid of the prazi in his tank. Should I remove the salt ff I start dosing Metroplex? Thanks

    Yeah. I think whatever it is causes this bumps on the fish. Unfortunately, I do not have any access to a microscope. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N900A using Tapatalk

    Update: So today prior to doing a partial water change I saw the fish have new zit/red sores. One near the tail and the other on the underside of his body. The first sore I saw was the one the tail. The only reason I notice the one on his underside is I saw something that looks like a planaria hanging under the fish. It does not look anything like an anchor worm. It looks more like a transparent curly poop but it was hanging on his underside. I tried taking a picture of the thing but my inferior camera can not focus on it, so I decided to hold the fish in hope of getting an image but the dang thing was gone.
