They actually do!I'm rooting for them, hopefully they pull through!!
Out of curiosity, do the gill things look like this? I posted a thread about flukes awhile ago but no one answered it lol
Are these Gill flukes? | Freshwater Fish Disease and Fish Health Forum | 477645
just wondering because my rasboras seem prone to these gill things
The clamped fins, the gulping and loss of colour. I guess a few of them must have had it quite bad if it took them down that quickly. I think they are flukes - you're probably right.
I bought some Lifeguard (not the Tetra brand, as it's ridiculiously hard to find fish meds in Canada now, unless you go to a vet) from Walmart, that has the same effect, high rated and has Halo Shield Powered branding that the Tetra variety has. Any idea if it is safe for planted tanks and shrimp/snails?
Either way, I'll dose it in the QT and leave them in there for another week and a half. Since I'll have the QT up and running, I'll probably get another 7-8 rasboras and treat the new arrivals in there with the same Lifeguard regardless.
I may not buy fish again from the same place. I was wary of my LFS (which is very highly rated and I've never had any problems with) but think that I may go and see what they have before doing another 2.5 hour drive to get more fish from the other place.
Live and learn I suppose.
