    I will do anything to save an animal - lol. There will be no giving up by me!

    I was googleing pictures of fishes affected with lymphocystis... that's some nasty stuff. It looks awful, but everyone keeps saying it will pass on its own. How are your guys going? Still fighting it out strong enough?

    Yes, lol it is really gross. I have a sensitive stomach, and yeah...lol....this is definitely testing me! :-/

    The flame wrasse's fins are cleared up, so that is very good. No one new has become infected so that is good. The anthias looks maybe a little worse (the growths on the tail) but she's still eating and very active. And Pablo (my clown) looks like a mess, but he's still eating as well.

    I think, think, she ate two tiny pieces of food last night. For the past two days she's wanted to eat, but then spits the food out. That is encouraging though, since before she had no interest in eating whatsoever. I get all excited when she takes the food in, but the she spits it out...but last night I think she may have eaten two tiny pieces.

    She is getting pale and lethargic. It is so frustrating. Just eat!!

    Thank you!! :) Very appreciated.

    i know - and i can hear you all the way over here in New York! Plus the fact that you are 3 hours behind me....so it is usually after i have just gone to bed too - keep it down to a dull roar, ok???!

    **grin**

    just teasing - I have emitted some "salty sayings" a few times here when something went awry with the tank.

    just hang in there!

    Hey KC, try soaking the food in an x-tra strength garlic formula. All my fish and CUC go crazy about that garlic! The only one that ignored it was my Lemon Peel Angel.. and now he's somewhere making his way back to the ocean... all drains lead to the ocean... so toilet qualifies! It's frustrating, I know... I've actually talked to my fish in many opportunities... they seem to not give a crap, though ;)

    What are you trying to feed her, I missed it if you mentioned it.
