Just found this site today for diagnosing fish disorders and possible remedies so I thought I would share. Hope you never need but a good idea to keep in your favorites. They will even help diagnose free according to their site.

You are right. I ordered some medications from them back when I lost several fish in a short time. I even called and talked with them.

Thanks for posting this Ron. It's good to have a reference handy in times of need but I hope none of us has these problems. Good husbandry is worth a pound of cure...Neutral

Back when I lost these fish, I believed I was practicing responsible fish-keeping. After receiving my fish via online order from Cichlid Express/Daytonna Aquarium, I quarantined them a couple of weeks with no issues. I put them in the main tank and all were fine. I think they had an internal parasite because daily testing revealed with no water quality parameter issues. I did, however, notice several symptoms associated with internal parasites as describe from various forums. Since that time with the treatment of metronidazole (medicating my fish food) and hospital tanks for two expensive fish, I've had no losses attributable to sickness.

Since that time, any new fish are quarantined much longer. My latest additions, Red Top Hongi and Fenestratus, were kept separate for about two months. Probably excessive, but took much too risk now with the main tank.

Introducing new fish into my household always makes me nervous, particularly fish from another region of the country. I have added new fish a couple a couple of times this year and I used quarantine tanks the first few weeks each time too. I don't keep meds in the house and don't have a planned defense other than trying to reduce stress as many ways as I can. I have been fortunate so far. I don't like taking chances either..Neutral
