    Default I think I just cured fungus in 48 hours

    OK,

    Since I have very little experience with fungus I'm asking here. One of my neons had 2 big patches on one side, almost certainly result of a fight with another shoal member. I administered a somewhat experimental treatment and it's gone 48 hours later.

    Is that a good time?

    As long as the fish isn't gone too, I'd say that was a very good healing time

    I wouldn't trust it. The outward symptoms, (the fuzzy white growth), might be gone, but the infection might not be totally gone.
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.

    Quite possibly. Still the fish, and more importantly the whole tank really, is acting healthy and normally.

    I suspect I might be on to something here though. I'm going to keep this under observation for several more days before I declare victory and share.

    Thank goodness my boss already left for the day and I am here alone because I can't stop laughing. Matt, that's a very true statement, but it hit my funny bone in just the right spot really hard! I'm still laughing!

    I am very anxious to read what you tried and hope it is as good as you think.

    OK, 5 days in, no sign of recurrence, no sign of a single fish being affected by this. This is in metric because it's the only thing I know.
    Before you try this remove carbon from the filter. This is not something to attempt if coloured water offends you.

    Per 50 litre aquarium water:

    Take a big glass jar or bowl, no plastic!
    Put the kettle on
    Take 2 catappa tea bags and pour on 1 litre of water
    Leave this until it;s at room temperature. Keep the bags in.
    Now remove enough water from your tank so you can add the tea, teabags included.
    If you're running an external filter then raise the spraybar a bit to get some extra air in.
    Do not do any water changes for the next 5 days. After that do a 50% and place a single catappa leaf in there and keep it in for at least another 3-4 weeks. During this period do not do water changes larger than 50%. After that you can stop the treatment, remove the leaf and add carbon to remove the tannins if you want.

    If you don't have any catappa or indian almondtree leafs it's sold in many places but I can really recommend this ebay seller: http://stores.ebay.com/Amys-Ketapang-Inc

    Excellent. I thought catappa leaves might be involved. 5 days without recurrence is a good sign. Keep us updated for a few more days and if the fungus doesn't return I will give this a try if I ever have a need.
