can't speak for the honesty here or on any other board around. As I said before my opinion was based on what was posted in this thread.

I hear ya, we're all trying our best to help without knowing all of the facts, at this point we're going mostly on assumptions. I just hope he can get the fish and the tank healthy any way he can.
Anyway, enough said and chewed on I have to go tend to my kids. Take care.

I do agree with you Cement. I should have been more specific, a QT is a safer way to treat both with meds and hypo than in the MD. While you do have some bacteria in the MD, and not in the QT, you can still keep up with PWCs in the QT to remove the ammonia/nitrItes.
I'll say it this way...if it were me, I would put the fish in a QT and keep up with the PWCs and other possible treatments. That does not look like ick to me either.

I agree with ROKA as to the QT. It is a great possiblity that your fish has "Ammonia burned gills" due to his gasping for air as you stated. A QT is a better option at this point because you can take a clean new batch of SW or some from the tank and monitor water parameters and do PWC as needed to keep them in check. It is allot cheaper to do a smaller PWC in a 10g QT then in a larger DT. Also if medications are needed they will not contaminate the main tank. We all have opinions and they are all with good intentions, but remember they are Opinions. Everyone should step back and see that all we want to do is help correct this situation so that we all can learn from this.
