What is the ‘ fungal medicine and everything ‘ you’ve tried. How much and how long etc. we need all that information.
Looks like she’s in a cup in the photo. I hope that was just for the pictures? What’s she living in and what are the water parameters numbers. (ammonia nitrite and nitrate?)
She was in a cup because I was currently cleaning her tank. (Which is a 5 gallon.)
Ive never been the expert with nitrites and nitrates.
I only have simple water testing strips.
If i could get some info on products to help with that as well, that'd be great.
The medicines that ive been using are Seachem's Kanaplex and Tetra's fungus guard. All together ive tried to treat her for about 6 months. Ive dosed as the directions say to, as well.
Only 3 doses of kanaplex and half a fizzy tablet for 5 gals with the fungus guard. (No, i did not and have not mixed the medicines together.)
I know that she's in bad shape and ive done all kinds of research, but figure id get more help anyway.
Im prepared to put her down if i have to.
