    Gday guys, Thought I had better update on my Blue HM girly. Ive been speaking with my LFS owner, who has bred, kept and owned many species of fish for more then a decade and whom I trust totally. I was treating with Tetracycline, IAL, Aq Salt and daily 75% water changes. As I said before I spoke to my LFS and told him about Yan's idea and he suggested I use Betadine (not the ointment), and has told me how he has used it many times on his fish for bacterial infections. He also has a link here on QLDAF which describes how to do it- http://www.qldaf.com/forums/help-fish-health-diseases-water-quality-12/how-use-betadine-fish-pics-47330/ This has helped- whereas the infection/melt/growth has stopped but hasnt gone one or the other, and so he suggested to stop the Tetracycline and continue to treat with betadine. So its moreso just wait and see which way it decides to go. Im stuck as to what to do, and where to go next.. I uploaded a recent video- I know its not the best very sorry, all I have is my phone- but it just kind of shows how the dorsal has clumped together and grown into the body at the front, leaving the end & back part still normal. The different color in the scales is apart of the infection as well... :/ Pictures Video
  4. Is that you Brooke? If so WELCOME! (lacy) umm if its not, then WELCOME!! hahalacy

    Thanks yan! I've been doing a 50% water change and dosing the tri sulfur every day (well up to day 2) I will definitely give that a shot.. I'll finish off this one tablet of tri sulfur (I had cut it into 4 because of the smaller tank-10L) and will try that method next... Thank you again!!
  6. That looks awesome!! how exactly did you put it together?

    Right thanks razzi.. Should I just do a 50% change everyday? my LFS also gave me some blackwater extract?

    Just a question, to make sure I haven't done it wrong. When I treated with Tetracycline, I had 20L of water already ready with IAL, Salt, Tetracycline -& heated and used that every day to change the water with. Is this okay? or does the Tetracycline wear out after a period of time? I am going to purchase some Tri-Sulfur tomorrow, should I treat with just the tri-sulphur by itself and see how it goes- or can I try and knock it on the head with a mix of tri-sulphur and Tetracycline? Thanks for your help guys

    Thanks yan, I googled it but it doesn't look similar. I thought it might have been white spot but its not fluffy.. unless its just part of the infection.. Really at a loss perhaps I should give triple sulfur a shot? argh.. btw happy bday yan!

    Hey guys, so it has been 7 days since I started treating with Tetracycline, to have no improvement. I noticed yesterday that now there looks to be a hard white part to the front of the dorsal where it joins to the body. I took a video off my phone, as the pictures aren't helping.. and I cant for the life of me find a camera. She is happy, eating, flaring at the other girls when they come over to suss her out in her container. Im not keeping her in the small jar, I only used it so she doesn't move around too much while trying to video her. The video is on youtube, address below Cheers guys

    I will try and find a camera, wish my phone had macro setting lol.. I would have thought marbling too, but the dorsal is clamped/ stuck together.

    Hey guys, just an update. The girl with finrot, she is well and it has gone away.. (the red on her fins are her pattern- I forgot to mention earlier) but the blue girl, there is no change.. I have her in a hospital setup-baine Marie style (lack of heaters etc) and do a lot 100% water change everyday from water that is aged, IAL, aquarium salt and already has tetracycline in it. its only been 5 days but I thought I may have seen a little difference by now? it doesn't seem to bother her, she eats great, flares up when the other girls come check out her in her container (she was boss before)..
  13. Love the music!! lol and they're looking AWESOME!!

    Thanks yan, should I do a 100% water change in their home tank? Or would 50% be alright? I normally do a 25% change most weeks. 64l tank filtered, heatered, live plants, while I treat them in the hospital tank?? and can I use the tetrcyclin with melafix in the water, or will I have to do a 100% water change in the hospital tank?

    Hey guys, Sorry to be a bit of a thread hog lately.. my Blue HM girl from Chi- I am not sure if its Melt, Rot or Velvet? I cant find any obvious copper powdery substance on her scales, and she is quite happy- upset she cant boss everyone around- but is eating great, no stress stripes etc. The reason I say velvet is that the scaling around her dorsal have turned a lighter color even though not copper, and her dorsal is clamped.. I have been doing a little bit of trolling through old threads, and cant seem to find anything that puts fin rot and clamped fins together.. Ive put a picture up of 2 of the girls- the Blue HM and a PK female who has fin rot on her dorsal (at least Ive put down to fin rot) Can you please tell me your verdict? (Sorry about the dirty glass lol) The Blue girl with clamped dorsal and lighter coloring around dorsal.. different angle Thanks in advance guys :)/>/> Oh also treating all 4 girls in a 26L barrack system with IAL, Aquarium Salt & Melafix.. Ness said to use Tetracyclin, but I am just trying to source it atm
  17. ooohhh I love him Ness!! Please breed, yes yes yes I agree :P

    Thanks ness, ill def keep an eye out for some tetracycline.. I don't think my lfs stocks it, do you know where I can get some online? I am in the process of doing a 50% water change on their sorority tank in case its the water quality, should I do a 100% one, or will 50% suffice?
