I would at this point keep his water pristine and add melafix if you want to and keep an eye on it for worsening or for any other symptoms.  Other than that little white he looks like quite the healthy guy. Wink

Just checked everything and water is indeed perfect. The only thing I did a few days ago was a 20% water change. I also removed the activated carbon pouch that was in the external filter since adding the Pimafix. His head looks no worse at this time. pH is 7.0 since the water change so maybe that fluctuation of .2 points caused him to produce more slime coat? It is a mystery. So grateful for your advice  Grin

Does his tail still have the whole in it? It may be connected  Undecided Seeing as stronger medications are available to you like the Jungle brand I would personally go for something a bit strong. I guess I'm saying this because I felt like I wasted my time with melafix and pimafix and wouldn't want you to do the same Smiley but then again it could be fixed by them  Wink

Hi Andrea, since his move into the new tank, his tail has greatly improved. No visible holes but has not totally repaired. A week ago a very tiny white cottony puff appeared on his pectoral fin but went away. I've been on top of the water like a crazy person (testing everyday that is) and so careful not to tamper around. Aside from that pH drop of approx. 0.3 points this is all that has been going on. pH is normal now too so I can't for the life of me figure out what the problem is. I don't everfeed him, he gets a good diet so I don't get it *sigh Roll Eyes to be safe over the holidays, I will pick up something stronger in meds and look for the Jungle brand formulas. Should also get some medicated food. Thanks for your comment Smiley

I know how you feel, that's how I felt with Sunshine, I tried so hard to make sure everything was perfect for her and she got the sickiest she has ever been. Luckily she is on the mend now Smiley Yours like mine probably has nothing to do with water quality. Actually I still don't even understand why caused my problem  Undecided

Hi April, Hi everybody,

as I mentioned in a PM to April, we had an akward storm here where the backside fell out of the sky and it destroyed our router, so we were without internet for 2 days.
Have to catch up a lot I see...  Wink

April, your little beauty IS A BEAUTY, let's hope she is a she and Mr. Tailer is a he.
Did you check out thweir vents and the first ray of their ventral fins?  Grin

But regardless, they are such gorgeous, adorable , lovely fishies.

Hope Mr. Tailer gets well quick. Like the pic with Sherlok Holmes look, LOL

I think you're on the right way, April Smiley Having the pH fluctuate a little might well have been the problem, so I believe that he'll be good if you'll only keep an eye on it from now on for a few days/weeks Smiley Test it daily Cheesy

Andrea so glad to hear Sunshine is on the mend Wink Hanna! I was worried when you were not on for a few days  Embarrassed sorry to hear about that wicked weather you had. My Aussie buddy informed me last night online and sent me some links to video of the hail  Shocked The sound of those frozen golf ball sized hail on the roof must have been frightening! Hope all the wildlife took cover too. Now, this little baby of mine my beloved Jillybean/fish Wink is such a character! Her eyes are so gentle and glowing  Shocked and she's like quicksilver zooming around now as she feels more comfortable in her new home. Just checked Tailer and the patch on his head is no worse and his tail looks better too. Gonna go whip up some grub for the gang have a great day ♥

Thanks April, it certainly was frightening, our fishies stuck all together at the bottom of the tank underneath the bogwood and looked with big eyes hubby said. I was still at work worrying about hubby, fishies, and the car being in the open carpark at the Plaza... but lucky no dints from the hail, very strong metal ( our car is treated like a family member too, lol, looked after, polished, cared for ) ok, this was a bit off topic, sorry...

But everything else is ok, fishies are fine.
Glad to hear Mr. and Mrs Tailer are well, cannot wait for the news when they will be together

I thought about the time of day it was there and wondered if your car would be damaged by the hail too so no, not off topic at all Wink I am just glad all is well with the whole fam damily  Grin There are many photos I guess tourists and local residents took and posted on the weather channel. Did you lose power too? It almost looked like cyclones could have been forming. My throat would close if I ever saw one - can't even watch them on tv (the sky taking form like that would break me) way too vivid an imagination. I am so happy you are all ok...including the car lol Wink

I didn't even know their was such a bad storm in Queensland  Shocked Everyone's been talking about the floods in southern NSW, the world is going crazy! Haha. I'm glad everything is ok Hanna and I'm glad it was internet that went out and not your electricity, as that would not be good for the fishies Sad You must have a very good car, mine would have been pulverised but luckily it's never been caught in a hail storm while I've owned it.

I've never seen that behavior either....maybe she's thinking...about how the heck can I con April into giving me extra treats  Wink
She looks great and she does look like she has grown!!   She's beautiful! Smiley

Hmm that does look a bit unusual but I reckon that is her sleeping. That's what it sort of looks like to me and she is just proping herself up on the plant. She is gorgeous and now I see how tiny she is Smiley

I am pretty sure she might still be a bit stressed, I noticed later in the video she was darting around the tank pretty fast.
However, I'm certain that you're keeping an eye on the water quality testing it every day, she just needs some time to get used to her new place Smiley

Her tank is somewhere where it won't be disturbed much, right?

The water is perfect across the board. The tank is in the kitchen on the side counter across from 2 of my birds. I am careful to come in from either side carefully so as not to startle her. She is getting better slowly as she adjusts, coming to the front of her tank to say 'hi' with that adorable little mouth and tail wiggle  Grin

Aha Smiley I'd say it's pretty natural behavior simply while the fish are adjusting to a new place Cheesy
 Bruce wasn't swimming around too much the first two-three days, but now he's really curious about everything that happens around! Smiley (Same with the pleco when I got him by the way!)
