Lol. I feel so bad for ksum! I get stressed when my fish are sick and I don't know what to do. It also worries me that the LFS mentioned Brooklynella so quickly. I wonder if they have other fish showing symptoms?

I tried to let him swim around in it, he just curled up and acted like he was dead. I panickd and put him back into the tank.. He was hard to catch. He runs like he is 100%

Since i put him back in, hes n the middle of the tank behind the rock in a dark spot. I see him swimming in place.

Keep an eye on him. I sent you another thread from the folks at Wetwebmedia. Browse through it and see if what he is displaying looks familiar. Hopefully it isn't Brooklynella and he's just having adjustment issues. There are a lot of aquarists who freshwater dip all of the fish they buy to kill any parasites before they put them in their display tanks. I prefer to just QT ours.

He did have white fuzz on him 2 days ago, i thought somehow he had sand stuck to him.. Haha. But it went away after a 25% WC.

But im familar with ich, small white dots.. Like sugar or salt on their body. I didnt know what it was.. But as of today, its only rapid breathing and no eating.

Should i put some of this nox ich the lfs sold me when i had freshwater fish (clown loaches had ich, and it cleared my tank, 6 loaches and 3 angels) and dip him in? Its says for FW and Marine use.

So he is terrified of you? You have mentioned a few times now that it swims away or hides from you.

Think of it this way, a person caught him, a person put him in a bag and shipped him to where ever, a person opened the box, put him in another tank where all day long more people looked, tapped on the glass, etc. Until you, another person bought him, put him in your tank. Pretty traumatic for a fish.

If there is no slime oozing off his body, let him be. Turn the lights down sit far away from the tank and let him watch you and learn that your not bad. When feeding, put it in and move far away from the tank.

It may be a disease, but it is more likely that you will kill it trying to treat it for a disease it doesn't have. If it makes it, great, if not try the things I mentioned from the beginning, and make the LFS show you the fish is eating before you buy it, until they can be trusted.

I'm not familiar with that med. If it doesn't contain formalin, I think that I would probably go with the Quick Cure. There are several folks on here who use the Quick Cure. Just remember not to treat any display tank with coral or inverts. They can't be exposed to most of the meds.
