i have done this many times, it will not worsen the problem if it does not help
Manipulating salinity while treating with copper medications can be fatal.
i have had experience with this many times and it has not proved fatal whatsoever.
explain to him why Ryland- it needs said.
You are correct, sir, and it's unnecessary.
Hey guys. I thought I would post a quick update on the Trigger. Today I was pleasantly surprised when I went into the room and turned on a dim light the Trigger lifted off the bottom of the tank and began swimming around. I hope I am not getting ahead of myself but I feel optimistic about him at this point. When I checked on him off and on today he was up and swimming. This is a first. I tried feeding some krill. Didnt even look at it and in fact swam away and hid as soon as I got close to the tank. Will be patient but I hope he eats soon. One other thing I noticed today now that he is up and swimming is his fins look horribly scarred. Big chunks missing and some nearly ready to fall off. Will be adding some melafix tomorrow.
this is great news, usually past the first night is when there is hope
I know you do not currently have a saltwater tank but I think you need to understand something. Changing salinity when treating with copper medications IS fatal. I will not go into specifics tonight (wife is mean mugging me its time for bed ;-) but doing this will cause death. I encourage you to do a little research on your own and let us know what you come up with. NEVER manipulate salinity while using copper.
Too bad about the fins, but encouraging news!
bump for the recovery of the fish WOOT WOOT!!!!!!!! ;D
