Help!! My clown fishes are dying.

Hi all,

My girlfriend and I are new to Marine creature. She bought 5 clown fishes and I bought another 5 for each of our houses. We got them from the breed center in southern part of Thailand.

At my girlfriend's tank, 2 weeks after they were past away, then the last one that i got left shown a sign of white stuff and it is eating its tail. When I compare with my tank, all survive perfectly.

I don't know if it is causes fungus or bacteria. I noticed that my girlfriend put her hand into the water to arrange live rock and small coral 4-5 times a week. Can any one tell me what happen? And how to cure....she seems hurting and I want to save her.

Use a bacterial med such as Nitrofurazone.

Hi, i am unable to find any medication or any salt that contain Nitrofurazone in Thailand. As it is illegal, it would cause cancer on any living organism. Do you have other option?

Cheers....

Are these in QT (tanks look bare)? Did you cycle the tanks prior to adding them? If not you should be doing 50% water changes. Another med goes by the consumer name Maracyn (erythromycin) or Baytril (enrofloxacin). If you can't get a hold of these use a slime coat protectant and vigorous water changes (75% daily).

I'm running out to find that medic. However, my girlfriend change the water according to your method in a bare tank.

She also use what our local people called "Japanese Yellow Medication", I read its label and it said it will help heal the decease that cause from bacterias. The sachet looks like this...

I just got back but it is quite late (9:17pm in Thailand) and all pharmacy were all closed. I believe it is consisting of "Sodium nifurstyrenate". Is this good enough?

Yes! Sodium nifurstyrenate falls within the nitrofuran category of antibacterial medications.
