    i been going through a tough time with my babies

    1st there was what looked like ich. sorted that out the old fashioned way.
    2nd my angels are bickering
    3rd clearly looks like velvet with one of my plays very lethargic, compressed fins and not eating

    so i went into my lfs for anti-parastic meds
    the idiot there refused to sell me the anti- parasite and made me buy an anti-fungus

    i cant exagerate how ticked off im am i can think of some four and five letter words

    question is will the anti-fungus help in anyway?

    Not sure about the meds you're planning on using, but one of the know-it-all LFS workers overruled you? Did you happened to take a picture of your problem fish in with you? Perhaps if you are sure it is a parasitic problem, just go back and return the anti-fungus and tell them you want what you came for.

    ive cured ick before
    did not have time for a good photo
    Ill try to get some photos and show it here

    here are the symptons
    compressed fins
    lethargic - just stays in one spot in a corner
    weight loss
    no appetite
    colour is off. greyish coat on the redwag platy

    on the angels there is like a gold or bronze dust. but they moving around, fins are ok and they eating normal
    i'm never walking in that store again as a matter of principle

    here is their website if anyone is interested

    If it is velvet then copper safe will cure it. I have used it with a very sick betta and saved him. I like the fact that it treats for one month without repeating ( just replace what is lost thru water changes) . But it will kill any inverts you may have in the tank.
