I can’t think for my life today. Does this treatment schedule look good? (4 on/3 off prazi)

Why am I still awake?  Because I’m stupid apparently.

 

Anyway, it could be irritation or a bleed, I’m leaning toward the latter.  There is absolutely zero to be done about it.  Keep up with the medication and we won’t handle her anymore, and will keep the lights off.  Feed lightly, keep the current gentle.  Low stress and let’s see if we can improve her condition a bit.  

 

Expect the redness to be the last symptom to resolve, if it is a broken capillary or abcess.  If it goes away quickly it’s likely just inflamed.  If there is zero improvement in her behavior OR appearance by Monday we will add in the Oxy you have as well, but not before, okay? :)

I only have 5 hours of sleep right now :o I don’t know why I’m awake haha. 

 

Okay! Will do! 

 

the oxy is two years old. That’s okay, right?

 

Her not being well is stressing me out so much :( she’s just sulking in a corner bottom sitting. She’s in that same position of the last picture I took.

The dry antibiotics, especially when they’re kept cool and aren’t mixed with anything like a food, are okay past the expiration date.   No prob. 

 

I’m sorry she is clearly not feeling well.  You’re doing the best you can and if it doesn’t work, you did absolutely everything you could to help her. Really.  That’s the frustrating thing about sick animals - we can’t cure them.  We can only try to make the conditions favorable for their bodies to heal themselves. In this case we are reducing any fluke population, trying to address any other internal parasites or gram positive bacterial infections, and keeping her stress low.  But the rest is on Moon and she is an older fish.  She may surprise us though :)

I’m treating my main tank with prazi pro now. I just bought a new UV sterilizer now bulb because the one in there is way past it’s prime. And all new pads for the canister as well. I still don’t know why but not complaining but I love that prazi kills black beard algae. It has been such a problem in my tank!!

Hi Koko! I think she’s doing okay. I’m going to give her a 100% water change tonight when I get home. I’ll post some pics after that. :)

She doesn’t look the best, but she looks better. I neglected water changes for a couple days. Work and school has been absolutely killing me. She could probably be doing better if I gave her more water changes :/ I just did a 95% water change. I tested the ammonia and nitrite and they were 0ppm:idont I didn’t test nitrate though. pH was 7.8. Her eye almost looks sunken in now?

Should I do any other treatment or just do the clean water? I see some slime coat build up on her tail. Should I do more prazi?
