An update on my scourge of neon tetra disease: I ended up losing all of my pristella tetras, and now my gorgeous dwarf gourami appears to be sick, as well. I've been reading up on this disease and it seems most species are not safe from it. Since my first losses (the harlequin rasboras), I have removed each sick fish into quarantine and tried both gram negative and gram positive antibiotics to make sure it isn't something else (no luck). I have done massive water changes in the main tank in an attempt to remove as many protozoan spores as possible, and even dosed the entire tank with Parasite Guard because I read that metronidazole has antiprotozoan qualities. Weirdly, I only lost one neon tetra so far.
Stock left in the my 55 gallon: 2 SAE
, 10 neon tetra, one clown pleco, 1 lonely albino cory, 5 platy, 1 sick dwarf gourami who will be coming out shortly.
Water parameters are excellent: Ammonia-0, Nitrite-0, Nitrate-5, pH-8.0.
Has anyone lost non-tetra species to this disease?
