Sorry for the delay, Rob.

Yes, Dojos are very tough fish. One in my 55 gallon had a pretty nasty looking gash on his head a while back and it has healed up nicely. ;)

Thanks Paul :D

I am currently adding salts to 0.3% conc slowly to help heal the wound because the melafix did nothing for a week.

Hmmm, healing with Dojos takes time. They grow very slowly. I wouldn't raise your salinity with them needlessly either. Melafix is good as an antibacterial for the surrounding water but it isnt really going to make the healing go too much faster. I believe you can do the same thing with only prsitine water and a good, mixed diet. Dojos looooove treats so indulge them.......

Today i think the tail is getting much better because of the 0.2% salt, & im going to add another .1% to make it .3%.

They heal very slow? DO they grow at the same rate as a goldfish?

In my experiencees with them, no. They grow slower simply because they don't grow as large. So, they can take their time about it, you know? :lol:

*Update*

The tail fin is getting thinner & not lumpy like it used to look like. :D
