I can see them in the video now. Those look too large to be Ich. Ich trophonts are more oval shaped and range in size from 48 x 27 to 452 x 360 micrometers. Has this fish already been dewormed with praziquantel or fenbendazole??
They went through prazi/gc in the prior tank and before I transferred them gave them a FWD and didnt notice anything. Should I hit then with Prazi again? I was actually planning another transfer in a few weeks with a 12 hour fenben bath in between.
I would FW dip first to confirm/rule out flukes: https://humble.fish/community/index.php?threads/freshwater-dip.20/
Thanks. If it's not flukes can it be a late reaction to the copper treatment? Anything else it could really be? I have 5 fish in the QT tank and this is the only one with spots.
Could be something viral (i.e. nodules). All medications (copper, prazi, antibiotics, etc.) are immunosuppressants, so if a fish has a latent virus it is more likely to experience a "flare-up" following exposure to meds.
I am not sure what else I can do? I transferrred the fish out of 14 days of copper into a new tank. In between the transfer I gave them a FWD with no flukes in the bucket. Do I start over and this time use CP and transfer out into a new tank after 10 days and then in between transfer do a 12 hour fenben bath?
Sometimes the best thing you can do is to put the fish in clean water (no meds) and feed vitamin soaked nutritious foods. Wait and see what happens. There comes a point where the medications have done all the good they can, and actually turn into a detriment.
You could put a couple of black mollies in with him just to be sure he's not carrying any transferable diseases: https://humble.fish/community/index.php?threads/black-molly-quarantine.55/
Sounds like a plan. I'll see what happens over the next 30 days or so. I hope I didnt accidentally didnt reinfect the fish feeding the rabbit live macro. Any experience with the herbatana products?
Herbtana manages parasites; Artemiss manages bacterial diseases. However, once the fish is removed symptoms usually return. Herbal remedies are usually just a band-aid, if they even work at all.
