    Hi Bianca;
    Just saw your recent pictures of your tank , it looks much cleaner that i thought ,the fish look generally in good shape ,it is stocked to the max but that is ok ,the recent additions seems to be the cal prate ,you have started the treatment with protozin so i would continue till the end , you have got a lot of positives like BB tank that will help you to keep your water clean.
    let us know how you go

    hi Bianca;
    Furan-2 is made by API ,last time i bought it on e-bay,have a read on line,if it is an open sore either red or gray or dark ulcer then you might need a strong antibiotic ,if you decide that is the way to go you need to order it now ,it will take a week to come from U.S ,by that time your present medication would have finished and you mightbe ready to go to the next medication ,if protozin has worked well you can keep it in your cabinet for next time ,all antibiotic do they give the fish a chance for its immune system to kick in before it gets a secondary infection , the other point you might consider is to get a QT tank with a mature sponge ready so if and when you want to use any medication i.e Furan-2 you can start immediately ,you also will save money on medication and will not put your healthy fish under medication unnecessarily ,you can pick up a 60 liter for $ 50 .
    good luck

    You can always take the fish out in a net, get some of your med, put it on a cotton bud and topically apply to the sore. This direct form of treating the site of the wound can really help.
    Why me ?

    Your're welcome sayid. I have had good results from this before, and know of others that have too. It's just people don't like to handle the fish out of water very much, but done carefully it is often a good choice.
    Why me ?
