Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Wow!! Why is he black? I’ve never heard of that. Is it ammonia burn, is it lack of oxygen? I’m sure you’re trying to feed some frozen blood worms or brine shrimp? Yes deworming is what I thought you would be doing because he is so thin. I’m sure you have pictures but I don’t think I want to see them...

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

WOW, I would love to keep up with the discus. You never know! A little tender loving care could mean the world. Depends how far gone it is and it seems he’s really far gone. But....ya never know.

Thank you, Loach. :-)

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Hi Loach. Everything has been really good. Status quo. Clowns look great. I love the stupid yo-yos and they are doing wonderful. The little teensy is doing great, you can tell he’s growing. And the silver dollars are fabulou—all four of them—back out and about and doing all the behavior they all use...

Giving kudos to us both! Always out and about as if nothing happened. Re...

Re: Gill flukes

All I can suggest is to be sure you are keeping the water at the highest quality by doing regular water changes. With any luck they will show signs of recovering after the Prazipro, which I have found very effective assuming you are, in fact, treating gill flukes, has taken effect. But no medication...

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

I have good news and bad news! Look at the healing of this silver dollar. The hole is nearly closed. https://youtu.be/TFDhdC-DQ0E Now the bad. Yesterday morning I woke up missing the teensiest teensy. I found his remains. In my opinion he was a little runt and I was amazed that he kept on going. I d...

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Over the last month, TDS out of tap has remained pretty consistent at 88-ish, Nancy. The summer could be higher I would imagine.

Re: Videos. Cyst bursting. Silver Dollar (lives with loaches)

Hi Nancy. Thanks! I never expected this fish to survive going from a prominent lump, to the lump breaking through the muscle wall exposed to the elements and then surviving the open wound, which, is healing wonderfully—especially for ten year old fish! So yes, I’m happy. And the rest of the crew loo...
