    Eck.....he's still a sickie this morning. Having problems swimming even. Took forever for his little stripe to light up after turning the tank light one. All the others were lit up and he was still plain white with barely visable colors....for about 5 minutes anyway. Poor thing....I hate not being able to do anything else for him.

    Btw, Forgot to ask.....today is usually my water changing day....can I still do that even though he's sick and there are meds in the tank? Or do I just go ahead and change some water and add a dose (or half dose) of meds?

    I would do the water change - the cleaner the water the better off he will be - like yous said add some medication to make up for what gets removed. It is better to have too much of the medication that you are using rather than too little. That isn't true for most meds - but its OK in this case.

    Good luck - he has made it longer than most sick neons do - so he may still make it!
    Go ahead - try to count my Bumblebee Gobies!

    I did a water change a little while ago, he's been swimming all around the tank...slowly but still swimming around. He was up at the top poking around when I was pouring in the new water, I was trying to miss him with my cup, I didnt want to hit the poor thing with it. He seems like he's feeling better, just still puffy and mostly colorless. Hope he hangs in there.

    in case ya didn't see it in my "dieing neon tetras" post...you might want to check this out. sounds like what your fish has got. i know that at least 2 of mine had it...

    ammonia levels are stable at zero. i don't have and can't find any other types of test kits in my area...nitrates or nitrides.

    at least i know what a few of the neons died from based on the articles section at left...

    Neon Tetra disease:

    Neon Tetras are susceptible to the Neon Tetra disease. There is still no available cure for this disease and it will often kill the fish. Neon Tetra disease is caused by a sporozoan named Pleistophora hyphessobryconis. The disease is therefore also known as “Pleistophora”.

    During the initial stage of Neon Tetra disease, parasite spores enter the Neon tetra. Common symptoms include restlessness and dull colouration. As the disease proceeds, cyst will develop and the fish body can become lumpy. The Neon Tetra will often have trouble swimming and towards the final stages of the disease the spine can become curved. The weakened fish is also susceptible to secondary infections.

    As mentioned above, these is still no cure for Neon Tetra disease and trying to prevent the parasite from entering your aquarium in the first place is therefore the best course of action. The parasite is typically introduced via live food or newly purchased fish. By cultivating your own live food you will gain a greater control over what you put in your aquarium. Brine shrimp is for instance very easy and hassle-free to cultivate at home. When you purchase new fish, you should ideally keep them quarantined in a separate aquarium and look out for signs of illness. In the aquarium, fish often catch the disease when they eat dead fish. Removing sick and dead fish as soon as possible is therefore important. Some aquarists report that using a diatom filter decreases the risk of Neon Tetra disease, but it is only a supplement, not a substitute for the precautions described above. A diatom filter can reduce the amount of free parasites in the water.

    There is also a disease known as “false Neon Tetra disease” that is often confused with true Neon Tetra disease. This disease is not caused by a sporozoan; it is caused by bacteria. The symptoms are however very similar and unless you have access to a laboratory it will be virtually impossible for you to tell the difference between the two diseases.

    Yeah I think he's probably got false NTD, he's been sick for 3 days and started him on Melafix the other night. He's still alive so I think if it were actually NTD he would've died by now. But who knows I guess. I just hope he's okay. Thanks for the article btw. :)

    Well he died :( So much for the 3 days of sickness but still hangin in there. I just hope he didnt suffer too much. I found him laying next to one of the rocks. I got him out of there and did a 25% water change. I also added some more melafix in the new water, just b/c i think i'm going to still treat the other fish incase they've got the bacterial infection or were nipping on him after he was dead. I'm not sure when it happened. I checked on him last around 8pm. So I dunno. So my school is down to 4 now, with the 2 oto cats. Might add another 2 neons in there since they like to be in groups of 5 or more. 6 seemed to be the perfect number with them. Plenty of room to swim around together with the oto's and not an overload on the tank.

    Sorry to hear about your fish - it is a very good idea to treat the other fish.

    Its tough to treat neons - they are so small that by the time you can see that they are sick they are usually very sick
