First of all I want to say thank you to any who choose to respond, I greatly appreciate you taking time for me.
Now, I'll address the recent advice I have gotten, (tyvm) I received my vita chem today on the advice of a member. So I'll keep you updated on whether this helps his fins. One thing though, holy crow I had a bit of a freak out. So I added it then proceeded to make dinner for my two parrots and towards the end, about 5-7 min after adding I saw white mini beads everywhere and I short term freaked thinking my boy had ich!!! Then realized it has to be from the vita chem and relaxed. Dude! You could have warned me!?!?!? Whew that was a scary minute or so. Ahem, Andy
Also, I'm wondering what a fungus growth might look like and if you think the little bit of white on his head/eyes/mouth area could be that. Please let me know your thoughts, you may have to enlarge the pic to see it, I couldn't get the other side where it shows just a hint more. If it may be, please advise on a product that will work yet be safe for my guy. Ok, just got a couple more shots, also look in front of his fin.
I'm now doing 50% water changes twice a week, do not have the master kit yet unfortunately, but all the parameters still seem good and my ammonia strips always show none. Thank you again for all the advice.
One pic is the white beads, just to show what I freaked about and the others are about the possible fungus.
Thank you all for sharing your wisdom...
P. S. Sorry I went sideways AGAIN, I will try to remember landscape for pics, oopsy very sorry
Just got a much better pic to add, hopefully not sideways
