Reply To: Treating seahorses with diamox


Long story short I have 6 tigertails and have had 3 of them for a year and the other 3 for about 9 months. There tank had issues with plumbing and I recently upgraded to a 75 gallon with a sump. I think they got the issues they are having from the first tank. They were all scratching on their decor and i have not introduced anything new to the tank. Just to be safe I treated with prazi pro. Still had symptoms. One of my girls developed bubbles in her tail. Did some major water changes and upgraded flow in new tank and her bubbles went away but she is still very pale yellow. One of the males had a bubble on his head and the other male had reoccurring pouch emphysema. Treated both in diamox for 3 days and bubble on the head is gone. The other male that had reoccurring pouch emphysema seems to be doing fine. They were not eating while I was treating with diamox so I also treated with a kanaplex bath.
Treating all of them in kanaplex baths now. On the 3rd dose today with water change.
The one that was really pale yellow is still pale yellow.
Plan was to move them from hospital tank after this last dose treatment I just did.
Not seeing any scratching from any of them. Not sure what to do next. TIA
