I used to sell that for horses. I'm sure it would work, but the dose would be tricky

I used metronidazole. The problem is, the flagellates cause the fish to not eat, and they need to ingest the metronidazole, thus the issue you get a tiny window after about 3 weeks where they nibble, and that when you have to strike.

In-tank fish pics! C'mon, you knew they were coming.

The first is freckles the discus. I have two other discus, but they are too shy for in-tank photo ops.

The second is unagi (freshwater eel sushi) the healed eel. He is 18" long and weighs in at probably 1.5 lbs. all you can see is his head

I got tired of the disease issues after buying fish from Petsmart and the local fish store. It seemed like I was always having to treat for Ick after getting them home, and I like Tetras and Khuli Loaches. And of course, they can't very well stand the chemicals typically used. I had some nice tanks over the years. I had some Guoramis (sp) build a bubble nest, and I thought that was way cool! I have a 55 sitting in the garage, waiting to be set up. Been thinking about it...

Do it! Set her up!

I had the same ick issues buying pet store fish. I gave up on my 60 gal because of it. Only reason I fired it back up was we had a private fish store open up here that really seemed to know their stuff. So far so good, besides the case of black beard algae my tank now suffers from cause of crappy live plants

How can live plants be crappy? If they survive they are GOOD! My fish always ate my Sword plants! See if you can find some Hygrophila. It is attractive, makes a nice backdrop cover, has nice leaves, and it's hardy. You will have to trim it because it will grow right out the top. It likes sand. Plant it all the way across the back of the tank.

I'll have to look for some. Sounds really nice

I say crappy because they were infected with the black beard algae when I bought them. It is a black, stringy algae that covers the leaves of my swords and makes them look like they are dying. Once you have it, you are stuck with it, like a fish tank STD.

Aren't you up late Scott!? It's like 3AM there!

Love Discus about the only fish I never messed with one day. I have a 55gal also but working on the boat and having fish does not work.

Looks like a tapeworm to me, and a big one at that.

Yep... I was up late researching fuel injection. Just so I can have an intelligent conversation with Bill. He's wanting to install FI on an old International combine! Can't figure that guy out...

Most of the time, when I had a problem, I started a hospital tank. It was temporary and it worked. But it got aggravating after awhile. Copper Sulfate will kill the algae, but it will kill the fish too if there is ANY residue.

Yeah, bill and his ZIFF sockets. And tapeworms have segments, he's smooth!

Trent, I'm sorry about your milk fish slightly funny though.

They aren't so bad really, you just have to keep tank parameters and treat for flagellates. They are cool fish!
