Agree, may be ich. Is he eating? Any white spots on his fins or body?

Never heard of a disease test for SW.

they gave you some "Blue stuff" 8O

ummmm sounds strange.

bet they just assumed you have ich and gave you meds to treat the tank.

I wouldnt treat the main tank with meds and I wouldnt add meds to any water unless I knew what the med was and that you actually have what it treats

Good Luck.

Yes, please don't treat the main tank with anything. 8O
That can be a disaster.
What is this stuff they gave you?
To rid the main of a parasite, all fish need to be removed to a proper qt tank and the main tank be left fishless for a 6 week period. That will do the trick and not do any damage to your main.
What other fish do you have in there?

Sorry to hear about your loss. I love my Niger. Do you know what the name of the blue stuff was that you put into your tank? Kurt is right about not adding any treatment chemicals to your main tank. It could do more harm than good, especially if you have any inverts in there.

Mike
