      • * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 10 gal quarantine, 2 days
      • * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? there's a small filter, no idea what turnover
      • * How often do you change the water and how much? have been changing 100% every day

 

I was trying to upload pics but my internet is so slow that it isn't happening. :(

He has a tiny white spot on his dorsal fin as well as one on his tail. He has spots on his wen too but they look like growth to me. He has breeding tubercles on his opercula and rays so they could possible just be tubercles too. (?)

He's eating fine but he just can't get off the bottom without lots of effort. He was fasted yesterday, eating again today. His mum had endless swim bladder problems too, in case that's relevant.

On hand I have erythromycin, flubendazole, dimetridazole and some packets floating around which I think are triple sulfa. I ordered epsom salt (will be here monday) as something leaked all in my old bag. I have sources for a few other meds if needed.

Thank you!
