I'm at a loss on that one, I haven't seen pineconing without bloating, or only on one side.
I'm still wondering about his reaction to the salt bath as well. You are using aquarium salt? What kind of ratio?
I'd suspend further treatment at this point, just concentrate on keeping good water quality. Hopefully someone who has seen one-sided pineconing w/out bloating will have better advice to offer.
The ratio was 3tsp to 1 gallon for the salt dips. He didn’t get the white spot until after I stopped the dips and he was put in the main tank.
As long as he’s still active and eating I’m going to try to save the little guy! I’m wondering if he got an infection secondary to the columnaris.
The part that’s throwing me is that he’s not scratching on anything, and any time I’ve seen a sick fish they are scratching constantly! I always get the weird problems...
Maybe I bomb the QT with kanaplex metroplex and focus like I did before.
Looks like people call Furan, metro and kana the “trifecta”. If it doesn’t work and he dies well.... at least I tried. And it’s not in my main tank.
