    I think i might mke a seperate post for this question as well...but im wondering about aquarium salt.

    Peru is still doing great! He's eaing ALOT!!! & much faster than hes been able to in months which is kind of scary for me to see - because that means he'll be having another growth spurt!

    The spot where the growth came off is still looking red, but today it looks a little bit swollen. I have antibiotics (Maracyn) but i think thats a bit over kill & i'm not convinced he needs anything that strong.

    I have aquarium salt that says it adds essential electrolytes, improves gill function, & promotes disease recovery.
    His gills are working fine, he doesn't have a specific disease...but im sure the electrolytes in the salt can't hurt.

    Is putting some of this salt in with a pleco ok (i've read its ok & most will tolerate it)
    Or should i just keep doing what im doing (small water changes everyday to get the poop out & keep the water clean & feeding - plus the water conditioner i have has aloe in it)
    I don't want to do too much & cause problems that are not there - but if there is a small infection (which is hard for me to tell) i want to treat it before it becomes a big problem.

    thanks!!!

    After a week he's HOME!!!!

    Here's the happy ending!

    1st video is after 30 min in the bag (the tanks were a degree diff in temp I didnt want to just toss him in) he spent the ENTIRE 30 min trying to eat/smash his way out of the bag...so when he was set free he swam behind a plant & took a few seconds but did this...




    After a few hrs he was back to 'normal' - I swear if its possible for a fish to smile...Peru does it! I'm stil trying to get a pic of that!

    ^_^ I'm so glad your goldpleco is doing well, is back home, and is doing his "goldie dance" again

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

    Since Peru's growth started right after I got him I've never seen him act like a 'normal' pleco (not that he's normal anyway lol) & do the things I thought plecos did...like suck on the glass & driftwood..he would do that every now & than but not much.

    I've been watching tv but i can see him too & he's been sucking at the heater for 10min & he goes back & forth between that & the filter tubes LOL

    no wonder he's eating so much...hes working up the appetite
