:blink: I had a real bad feeling when you said about the green things.Been there done that with those fish lice.They are nasty little bugger's that can do some hefty damage~! Suction Tam???? You need to find yourself a pair of Tweezer's Hun. It's a little tricky to where sometimes you need a second hand to help,and you wanna swab the area that you take the lice off of with either like a Hydrogen Peroxide,Neosporin,etc. Id salt the tank to .3% do alot of vacs,and hope you get rid of them soon.Keep an eye out for tinier ones on him too. Good luck!

Oh boy, it's one of those 'sounded-good-at-the-moment' things then after the fact you're sitting there slaping your forehead like what in the world was I thinking? He's fine, got a little bacitracion (like neosporine for burns cuts and wounds) smeared over his head and it's healed over this morning. Tweezered the suckers off and bacitracioned those sores, completely tore down the tank and scrubed the plants/rocks/wood, inspected the other two and now everyone is swimming happily with some salt and later today in meds. So glad they're better, but yeah, the suction thing...oy, never thinking of doing that again. :rolleyes:

Balthazar is doing SO much better. It's been at least 3 weeks since I took the lice off and he's out and about, no more loaping around the bottom. The scars around his eye are completely healed this morning too, thank goodness.

The tank sits in the garage untill I can get/make a stand, not the best place but the strongest. I've hesitated puting it on a towel on the floorof my room simply because my cat would sleep on the hoods and I'm afraid those would lean in and maybe snap under his weight.

Tam i'm so glad that your moor is ok. I hope I never have to deal with fish lice, but this was definitely a thread that I learned stuff on.

Thank you Kissy and Barbra, those lice I tell ya, they're nasty critters. I do hope no one ever gets them in their tank(s).

Good news though! We have a stand and it's under construction as I type.(Much and many thanks to my moms boyfriend for building it) Nice cherry pressboard (yes, I know cheap, but it looks sturdy enough) that matches my bed frame. So in my room tomorrow it goes. Horrah!
