See how they respond to the water changes and be sure you have more mixing just in case. Please post back if there are any additional changes.

Do you have access to either Maracyn II or Furacyn?

Cheers
Steve

FYI, the majority of the livestock have been coming from LiveAquaria.
Are there any LFS's in you area? I know some folks have had good luck with online fish purchases. But I prefer to inspect me fish before I buy. FWIW

I have a few LFS that I am not overly crazy about. They never seem to have the fish I want, or their tanks look dirty. Simply because I can't keep spending $$$ on the shipping and minimum purchases, I'm going to have to make do with the LFS.

I'll give a status update later tonight. I really wanted 3 chromis. Hopefully I'll be able to replace my loss soon.

Oh, and about the meds, I have not seen them around. I can try the one really good LFS, but not until tomorrow.

Well, the bruise got much worse. Looked more like a gash. Needless to say he didn't make it. The remaining chromi looks to be doing pretty well. I'll give him a few days and re-evaluate.

Sorry for your loss...

With two deaths in the span of two days, I don't think much would have been possible on your part to save these guys anyway. How did the water change go, anything significant on the remaining Chromis?

The only thing I can think of here is possibley Uronema but it should not have developed so quickly nor caused the deaths in such a short time frame. I'm not sure if it's too late for the remaining fish but I would suggest treating with a series of formalin dips. It will cure the problem if Uronema marina but you must be sure the fish has no lesions present. If any redness is present, it will not tolerate the formalin with skin damage so you may have to opt for a FW dip and Methylene blue. Furacyn has also been noted in helping with Uronema if the fish is in the early stages of infestation. Use at a one time dose of 30 mg/gal for 5 days.



Cheers
Steve

The remaining Chromi looks to be doing fine. We'll see what happens...
