Re:Infected seahorse tail tip


Dear Pete,

Thanks again for the guidance…I very much appreciate it. I know it must take a lot of time for you to be giving out your valuable advice.

But I am afraid that the seahorse is not responding very well to this treatment of neomycin and triple sulfa. It is now going on three days of treatment; I am following your directions and doing 50% water changes 2x per day and replacing 50% of the med dosages at those times. Unfortunately he only seems to be growing weaker and weaker. Any suggestions on trying another medication combo? Something to try other than the neomycin and triple sulfa? Interestingly, lthough his growing overall weakness seems to suggest that he is suffering from general septicemia, the actual swelling on the tail tip is going down.
