Hello!

Hi,
How are the baby Angels?

My 72G tank has an out break not bad but nagging and I will be treating it with a new med in the next few days.

I will be getting rid of two tanks here soon, a 37 and 16 so I can get a new tank I have been wanting and focus more on raising the Orange Eye Blue Tiger Shrimp.


This one is a poor pic but you can see how dark blue they are now!







Can you tell if the ones I have are male and female? The smaller of the two here keeps chasing off my 3rd one. Probably need to get it a new friend.



I will have some more questions for you pretty soon!

Sorry, The Angel fish pic was the one I was checking on and it didn't show up!!!

this one



I have something which sounds similar to /like Columnaris, but it hasn't killed much stock, only a few of the fish which probably brought it with them.

The first round I had a pH crash, (that is when I lost the 3rd angels buddy angel #4) after I got that fixed, everything seemed great.

Then I added some Otos and they have oval /round spots on them, treated with Marycyn - two for gram negative bacteria, and it didn't do anything That I can tell.

Now I am trying to see what will work for not killing inverts, prefer not kill all my BB from my FX-5 . Best meds seem to be Sulfa Combo med
or Kanamycin. Still trying to verify effect on inverts and BB. I should call the med company now!

All fish are active and eating, even the ones with the patches, and things seem fine otherwise.

This is in my 72G. I need to get them better, as I have fish to move around because I am getting rid of two tanks. Two healthy ones btw. No problems in any other tanks and no moving fish around. Anything that has gone into the 72G has stayed in there. I use separate buckets and nets.

So what can you use? Look for medications with antibiotics in them. Nitrofurazone, Furazolidone, Tetracycline and Oxolinic Acid have been known to be effective. We have found that Nitrofurazone seems to work the best. Whatever you choose, be sure to follow the recommended dosage and instructions carefully. Overdosing a pond or aquarium can result in complete losses.

Treatment: First, slowly lower the temperature in the tank to 75 or 76 to slow the course of the disease. Also, since columnaris thrives in low oxygen conditions, the addition of an airstone or lowering the water level to create more splash from the filter will also help.

The most effective treatment for columnaris if the fish is still eating is medicated food containing oxytetracycline. Aquatronics makes such a food, as does Zeigler. Often, however, the fish is not eating by the time symptoms are noticed. Antibiotics in the water would be the next treatment option. Erythromycin (Maracyn), nitrofurazone, nifurpirinol, acriflavine, chloramphenicol or tetracycline can be used to treat the columnaris itself. However, a fish infected with columnaris often falls prey to a secondary infection which is resistant to both of these. Therefore, a combination of Maracyn and Maracyn Two or tetracycling and kanamycin is recommended. CONTINUE TREATMENT FOR A MINIMUM OF 10 DAYS.
