Its been since 4/14 I've been worried about this guy. He started getting better last week, so I didn't treat. I tried several times to catch him (he'll jump right out of the water when you try to net him), and now he's spending most of his time hiding (from me - he comes out when I'm not in front of the tank).
His appetite has vanished - he was always eating well when this started, and for 2 weeks after, which is why I didnt' suspect it as being too serious.
But now, I'm worried.
Here's the original thread, when it started:
he started looking better, so I thought the problem was going away. But, the white injured-looking area has started getting worse again, dark spots (like scabs?) have formed on it. Photos below.
Specs: 75g. FOWLR
. Water params all good - no ammonia, no nitrite, ph 8.2, s.g. 1.022, nitrates at/around 10.
If this still looks like uronema, I'll empty the tank of all the rocks and find some sort of large clear plastic container to catch him in. I have NOT found paraguard at a local pet store, I'll probably have to overnight something for mail order.
