Seizure!

Ok...so now, my rummy nose tetras are seizing!! I don't get it...sigh...all my parameters are perfect nitrates are in between the first two colors of the card on the master test...everything else is 0 ph is at 7.4 and temp is at 85ish...cuz I thought I started seeing tiny white specs on one or two...I'm hoping that I'm just catching signs of ich early, but I've never seen a fish seizure from it before HELP!!

Bring down the temperature. See if it helps. It can't hurt.

My platy was doing the same sort of thing. It just froze up for a bit and was all tensed up. It seemed like a stroke but I don't think fish have big enough brains. Haha. It got better though,

Lower the temp for the tetras, and keep up with the ich attack is all I can tell you. If the temp lowering doesn't seem to be helping... Kick it back up. How fast did you raise the temp?

The seizures could be from toxins, injury, or even shock. Considering your fish is flashing, it's definitely an infection. No white spots? Or are there small whitish grayish speckles all over the fish? And do they turn gold when you put a flashlight to it? If so it may be velvet. I think he might benefit more in a tank temperature at 80-85%

If it's not velvet or anything, it's probably some different parasite causing stress. Seizures are caused by stress. What you can do is in the morning run to the LFS pick up water dechlorinator with that extra stress coat stuff. And when you get home do a PWC with the it. Best thing I can think of as a temporary road block. From there maybe treat with some methayne blue?

Well I use prime...and yes I think I do see tiny white specks...which is why I'm hoping I'm catching ich early-ish

Seizures are caused by stress. If he had it for a while it may have caused stress resulting in seizures. Don't count out velvet yet. It's a different disease with light white/grayish spots. Maybe your not catching itch early but really velvet. I don't mean prime, but a dechlorinizor with I believe it's "aloe Vera?" that adds a stress coat. There's even a graph on the back with how to apply to stressful fish.

It's kinda weird cuz when it seizes up, another one comes over and gentle rubs up against it...like it is trying to make the other one feel better...it's kinda sad
