My sids are doing great. Still in the smaller holding tank as I’ve had problems keeping fish alive in the 40 b after I rescaped it. Sigh. No cycle crash but fish getting lethargic, refusing to eat, and dying.
I think I’ve finally linked the issue to the new driftwood I put in. Now that I’ve removed it, fish are much, much better!
Anyhoo, I have 2 sids who are a good bit smaller and thinner than the rest. Still active and eating though. And I can see 2 reddish colored spots on the underside of the smallest. Not like an open sore spot; just different color on their body.
I initially dosed the tank with levamisole in December right after I purchased them.
Should I do it again?
I’m crossing my fingers that the 40 is straightened out and I can move the sids to that soon.
So I did a 50% water change, removed the charcoal and added a half dose of levamisole. I’ll add the other half in 12 hours.
Lights are off and the little guy is still hanging in there.
Just did a 75% water change and added charcoal to the filter.
I’ll do another treatment in 2-3 weeks.
Luckily I don’t share most equipment between tanks so hopefully nothing has spread.
And if course, it might not be internal parasites but just some defect or weakness in him specifically.
But fingers crossed!
