I went out into my fish room today and my Thoracochromis brauschi "Blood Throat" male was laying on his side breathing hard. I put him into a hospital tank and started meds. This is a bummer it's the only male I have, and I hope he makes it.

He is alive but not doing to well. I just changed the water and added new meds.

Any idea what's going on with him? I assumed it was aggression.

No aggression just got sick. He did have white stuff on his sides today, almost like ick but it was to big. When I went to check him tonight it was gone. He looked better but was still breathing hard.

what did you use to treat him with??

i found some new stuff that can take care of pretty much anything. it is a strong oxidizer and pretty easy to use.

sry to hear that.

it is called minnfinn. it is hydrogen peroxide, which has been around, but it is mixed with another chemical that helps make it more effective.

it is supposed to treat everything from ich to trich, costia velvet and pretty all bacteria, fungus and parasites.
