I have done everything to the letter. I think I have the disease under control. A week of metro, and epsom salt treatment. Its so dam frustrating...Poor lil guys

Sad... How does that happen? Is there a way to prevent or reduce the risk? Sorry for your loss bro, hope others are ok.

I keep on only Mbuna...So I never feed bloodworms. NLS only and veggies. Thats it. MY water is perfect and always is. They are all juvis so its a low stress enviroment. It sux... It can be prevented by not feeding hi protien fish meal or things like brine shrimp. Keep perfect water for your species. and keep a low stress tank. I thought I was doing all of that. I would also say, if you notice a fish not eating. Be sure the fish is not holding fry and start treating with metro. Once they swell its over.
