Ich infects the gills usually long before it infects the scales. So he could be battling it and you not even seeing it. At least your treating, keep it up till It's gone or you'll have to most likely start over

Rams don't tend to come back from this point. You can try bigger water and meds but I think it's going to be to late

Well got home from lfs, bought some more test kits. Male is now laying flat on his back breathing heavily. Neons are both teared up and floating around. Kuhlis are laying still on the sand.

Got my new double red pair of cacatuoides and they are doing great. Wanted to share. Question, will the female always be this yellow or is she in breeding colors?

Are you sure that male's not a triple red?
