Active ingredients: sodium chloride, metronidazole (good, right??), and acriflavine. How long do you think my clown can go without eating? If this treatment helps, I still don't think he'll want to eat until the internal parasite (if that's what his problem is) is gone. He's going on his 8 day of no food....

Thanks for all of your help!!! You guys are the best.

.... Sadly, I must tell you all that my little clown has passed away. I really was hoping that the treatment would help. But, I know that I tried everything that I could to keep him healthy and alive... I want to thank everyone again for all of your help.

If its any consolation. I have 3 tank bred percs. I have had them since Nov of last year. Disinfect that qt tanks and try again. Just next time, see him eat at the lfs.

Ya clowns can be funny. They say they are very hardy, but my 1st clown did the same as yours, and eventually passed away. Sorry for your loss.

If this exact problem ever happens again, this should atually have a possitive effect. I hope you never have the chance to use it though

Cheers

Thank you everyone for your condolences and kind words. You guys are the BEST!

I am going to get another fish soon, maybe not another clown just yet. So, should I rinse the QT with bleach? Can I reuse the sponge after I rinse it with bleach as well, or would it be best to not put it back in the main tank's sump?

Thanks again, everyone!

I would wash the tank with bleach, rinse very well, let it air dry and pitch the sponge. Just get a new one and reseed it.

Thanks, Quarryshark! I already had an extra sponge in the sump of my main tank so I will definitely throw the QT one away! I guess I should get a new filter for the QT's biowheel mini as well....
