So you can read my first post about this fish here http://www.aquariumadvice.com/viewto...565&highlight=
about a sick Vlamingi tang. I have taken over the care of this fish.
I did a nice water change for him, and is parameters in the tank are good. I test it regularly now. I am also keeping a log on this fish like it should have been done from day one.
The fish is eating... he eats very well. I soak his food in vitachem and or garlic. I also dose the tank with maracyn II and vitamin C.
He still has the "injury" or parasites to his eye. Still not sure which it is. I do have 2 cleaner shrimp in with him and they just go to town, we are special orderign a cleaner wrasse for him. I know they don't survive but maybe for a little while it will help.
It looks like he is devloping I think Hole in the head? Is that what it is called. One of my coworkers said that we can treat that last with wound control. Does that sound good.
HIs color has improved but the eye only imporved a little. THe instructions for the maracyn II says to do this for 5 days which I will. I don't work tomorrow which is his last dose but I made arrangements for someone else to medicate him and I am in on Thursday.
He does have white spots so some sort of parasite and the eye problem. He does seem to have some sort of hemorraging in certain areas of his skin. But I am hoping the maracyn will help that
Does anyone have any other advice on the situation. I have developed quite a bond to this fish and I am going to try my hardest to save him even though nobody else in teh store is. Well they care but nobody is doing anything about it.
