Bloat cure

Had anyone ever heard of a medicine from Dr. Discus called bacter-cure? I went to the lfs and they gave me this medicine for treatment. I don't have a quarantine tank right now and t this is what they gave me, did it should work. I believe i caught it in the early stage so hopefully they are! Only one fish is showing symptoms.

Bloat cure

I have heard of people feeding peas to help clear them out. I tried it when I thought my keyi had bloat but it ended up being fine after taking a large poop. Don't know if the peas helped or not. I bought frozen peas microwaved them with a little water for a few seconds then peeled the shell and fed them to my tank after they cooled enough.

Take food mix with seachem focus 5 measures and seachem metro 1-2 measures than mix and feed and let it do it's work
do not over feed them to try and get most meds in, it takes time

Hello stone...

A little fiber in your fishes' diet will help. Vegetables are the best source. I prefer minced garlic. It's high fiber, high vitamin and contains a natural antibiotic. Very healthy if you get a brand with very few ingredients. Spice World has a good product. No preservatives or other additives. Just garlic and water. I feed it regularly to my fish. They love it.
