Third day of treatment (Furan-2 + Kanaplex) for a columnaris outbreak in my DT that was entirely my fault - wasn't careful enough with my equipment and contaminated it due to a pair of new fish that succumbed to it two days after purchase. Four of my old fish showed signs of it within a day of when I suspect I contaminated the tank. So I've been shuffling fish around between bins, dosing meds, and doing close inspections of everyone involved.

Old fancy goldfish - the rapid deterioration of his fins has stopped and the inflamation around his scales/gills has gone down.

Female hoplo #1 - Large legion on her side has stopped growing and is healing.

Female hoplo #2 - Adipose fin decay has stopped.

Female hoplo #3 - The worst afflicted, lost all four barbels within 24 hours and passed away in quarantine earlier today.

4 other hoplos, black moor, ranchu goldfish - No signs of illness yet. Behavior is normal.

On the upside of things, I was forced to run out and buy two new aquariums to house a shipment of new fish that I had ordered over the weekend before disaster struck. I used up all my sterilite bins and buckets and my QT for sick fish, so I was out of space for the new guys, so I got to set up a 29 and 10 gallon

Here they are in quarantine;





So just remember folks, always quarantine new fish and be extremely careful with your shared equipment - I was disease free in my big tank for almost 2 years, and the moment I became lax in my practices, I had a disaster on my hands.

My quarantine tank is ready, so I went and bought myself two peppered corys, and two bronze corys and they're swimming around in there now. I've got two bronze corys in my big tank- did not realise they needed friends so I hope they'll appreciate the company when these little guys come out of quarantine.

The new ones are so small! So teeny tiny. I'm still clumsy at this, and hope I did not stress them out too much in transit, or with acclimatising them to the new tank water.

Also got a new piece of driftwood which is boiling on my stove. Going to look nice in the tank!

You should get rid ich + by kordon, its the best and works like a charm! You can get it from petsmart for 7$ for a 8oz bottle.
