In the mean time I’ve been feeding erythromycin laced food and adding more salt with each water change... even this small amount seems to be affecting nitrification.

Interesting. Anyway if you really wanted to know the nitrite concentration when it's off the scale, you could dilute your sample with distilled water until results are readable. Then multiply by...
I only got aquarium salt. I added about 1/4 the recommended dose, not sure if the yoyo and mts tolerate it (about 200 grams in 196 gallons).
No furan-2, triple sulfa or kanamycin available at lfs....
The setup as drawn would suck waste into the gravel and may clog easily. It sucks unfiltered tank water towards the gravel. You'll probably need to clean the gravel as much or even more often as if...
Thanks for the articles, I have a lot of homework to do....
Are these both synergistic combos, since I've already tried Kanaplex by itself, and it's possibly resistant?
I'll try leaving the AC on 24/7 and see if can pick up salt, [furan-2 OR triple sulfa]...
The fuzz got longer and it definitely looks like columnaris
I'd like to reduce the chance of disease in the future after medications are done in my tank...

I'm noticing a transparent fuzzy growth beginning on the rubbed raw areas?
Isn't triple sulfa mainly for gram negative bacteria?
No other antibiotic listed on that page sounds promising (except for...
There are 2 pumps inside the tank, that's it. But the room temperature has been really hot. Need to bring the tank below ambient. Unfortunately it looks like I'll have to stick with this air...
No hospital tank is available and I am very unconfident in my ability to catch her, last time she freaked out and gave herself many injuries and stabbed my arm with her dorsal fin.
Looks like I'll need at least a 1/6 to 1/4 hp unit which currently cost around $600. :18: I would normally consider this unreasonable. Obligatory:
Furan 2? Is that nitrofurazone or something?
So there are still no reasonably priced chillers? Oh well.
Looking for recommendation and/or shopping strategy for the purpose of getting a chiller.
I am currently using an air conditioner taped to the tank and would like to replace it with something...
Actually the limit is 10ppm as N (1 nitrogen) while most aquarium test kits measure ppm as NO3- (1 nitrogen and 3 oxygen)
(I made that mistake and freaked out before)
To convert nitrate to...

Temperature went over 88F again. Damage appeared to have spread to left pectoral fin. Changed water and started erythromycin treatment last night.
Sorry, busy days until at least Thursday. In the mean time, what preparations are recommended in case of a mini cycle or other problems? Does Safe (powdered version of Prime) interfere with its...
It is not recommended to use ammonia containing surfactant because the surfactant may remain and harm fish.
I was interested in how madagascariensis' betta did in particular but thanks for the general idea.
I did an 80% water change last night. Not adding any more Paraguard. I'm just wondering what to...
I came home today to check on Tiger and she picked up a bunch of dead snails and spat them in my face. It's like she's trying to tell me something.
I took a closer look, and LOTS OF MTS SNAILS ARE...
Changed water and dosed Paraguard.
Based on logged data, nitrate concentrations are approximately:
20ppm before water changes
10ppm after water changes
However, there were long periods where...
Thanks! think I'll try paraguard next and erythromycin as the last resort.
Read mixed reviews about side effects on loaches and snails but nothing is risk-free.
