    Finished the two treatments of Kanaplex and Furan-2. Very little difference.

    Next on directions is water change.

    Pre-water change: ammonia 0---nitrites 0---nitrates 0

    WWYD: What would you do?

    Are there other things worth trying? Or should I lower the water level and try again to net/euthanize him, since he isn't getting better?


    I hate putting my other fish/inverts and plants through the meds unless there's a good chance they'll work.

    Put the afflicted fish into a 10g quarantine and then treat.

    Okay, thanks. FYI I didn't set up a QT tank because the Bloodfins and Corys were my first fish, and I haven't had a problem until now.

    I tried, but could not net this fish. I may just euthanize him if I can net him. But I will need a QT tank in any case, as my tank has plenty of room for another group of fish once this situation is resolved.

    Found this interesting method for catching fish. We'll see if it works for my Bloodfin. They are so high-strung and easily spooked. But they're also very curious, especially about food.

    It will probably only work once, I'm thinking. Once he is in the bottle, I can pour him into a storage container with tank water, then net any other fish and put them back.

    PS I wouldn't have such ragged edges.

    Yep, trapping fish instead of chasing them all over a tank works very well, and less stressful for all concerned, many times

    WC time is the best time for netting fish, though...less water for them to avoid the net when you drain it low

    I may be callous but if this all for only one blood fin tetra, I would catch and euthanize. If there is no improvement after two rounds of treatment then a cure is unlikely. I would want to protect my remaining stock. I would then concentrate on keeping the tank as healthy as possible. You could always set up a 10g QT down the road for any new fish. Everyone is different but that is what I would do.

    Once the water level is low, try using something to corner off a section of the tank where the sick fish is. A large food container lid , as an example.

    I'm sorry you are not seeing any improvement in your bloodfin. He is one resilient fish though! I would not want to keep medicating the whole tank either. I agree with Silbar, you've given it a true go at healing him, not like you didn't use heavy meds and I know you're husbandry is commendable. If more than one fish was infected, it would be a different story, but the others are healthy, we wouldn't want to put them at risk like Sil mentioned. Too much medicating can affect a tank negatively, I think it's time to catch this poor fish and get the tank back to normal.

    You could try treating him in a 10g container, not necessarily a tank, since it's not contagious, but with no improvement using the Furan 2 and kanamycin, I think it would be wise to try something else, and that can get costly for one fish.

    I hope the trap works for you, it never worked for me lol. If it doesn't work for you.....

    Tips for netting:
    I noticed fish don't seem to freak out as much with vertical movements. Ex. Getting underneath the fish with the net and scooping up to the surface. I use very very slow movements, and try to keep them vertical. If the fish aren't freaking out, it makes netting so much easier. I make such slow movements, I watch the fish very closely, observe its reactions, and try to trap it on the side of the glass, or underneath and scoop. If trapped on the side of the glass, try tapping lightly with your other hand on the outside of the glass to guide the fish into the net. I use a big 6" net for small fish even. If you catch more fish, you can scoop them out of the big net with a smaller net and back into the tank. The fish are hardly stressed.

    Good luck Jana!

    It doesn't appear to be very contagious.

    Not like a virus, where you have to be extra diligent with QT away from other fish.
