Re: One of my platies is not well! #22
Thanks...something to get used to keeping fish I have no doubt. Being in my sixties I understand the cycle.

Should I keep dosing with Myxazin??

I would finish the course just in case there's any spread to the others. There shouldn't be if it was from an injury, but having started you may as well see it through.

Re: One of my platies is not well! #25
I have another fish near death I noticed last night that it did not feed and seemed a bit lethargic.
This morning it is at the bottom struggling to remain upright.
No outward signs on the fish itself.
Water tests were fine last night but will re-test shortly.

I'd have a word with your LFS. I'm inclined to believe they were already infected with whatever ails them when you bought them

Re: One of my platies is not well! #27
Me too These were not from the Local Big Chain but from the well respected and long established one across the road from me.

I will have a word with them although they only guaranteed their stock for 48hrs and of course it is well past that.

In saying that the fish is hanging on. At one stage this morning it was lying on its side and I had actual put the net in the water to recover him and he swam away.

He is now in the corner behind a plant and is upright so will keep a close eye on him. Problem is now that I am getting a little paranoid watching each fish to look for any abnormal activity etc.
