Default Re: Oscar Losing Eye + HITH

He is in a 20 gallon with three minnows. I was trying to get him to eat and I think he might have eaten one as there were four minnows in there. Just as long as he eats, you know? I felt that Pimafix and melafix were too weak as well, but treated with it as I didn't know what else to do. He's been in my care for two weeks, having treatment for both weeks, one with HITH and one with pimafix.

I'd started a treatment of mild pickling salt the first two days, but it made the wounds on his face bleed. I'm pretty sure it is HITH and not... helifex? I think that's what it's called. It's "h" something anyway. His slime coat was shedding and he is half gray instead of albino. His coloring has improved since treatment.

I'm thinking that maybe I should give him a week without treatment after tomorrow and just do daily water changes of 10% to make sure the water quality is as good as it can be. I'm just worried about that fungus at the moment though.
