Well, sometime just after i posted, i realized my other dwarf cichlid has a stiff pectoral fin from what i'd say is advanced columnaris. So here we go again
I kinda feel bad cause i should of treated it earlier. I probably could of stopped it but i was too busy with trying to save my other one, i thought it might of been an injury then i thought she was doomed like my other one and my laziness just set in. She had a white patch on her head there for awhile, i dont know who had it 1st her or him.
Has anyone ever cured a fish with a stiff fin from columnaris before?
Ive quarantined her now for 4 days, put in Tri-Sulfa and wondered if i should also put in Myxazin. Decided yes. On 3rd day i realized i forgot to give her a salt bath. Did a 30 min salt bath with natural Himalayan salt maybe 3-4 teaspoons all up of slowly increased doses in about 12cm of water in a bucket. Cleaned the quarantine tank 60% water change. Re added Tri-sulfa and continued the Myxazin, 4th day now. I didnt think to put the Tetra with her incase she infected that fish with it. I dont think shes going to get better
Edit: i also read that oxygen helps keeping columnaris alive. So i stopped it on 3rd day. On 4th day when i put mxyazin in again i decided to add the air stone in again to mix it around, instantly she didnt like it, had the shakes and did that agitated flash like fishes do with ich
