So a couple of things I wanted to run by you… Tigger seems to be continuing to improve, so at the seven day mark, I should just go ahead and put him back into the main tank with his buddies? The infection should be all cleared up by then?
Also as far as treating the main tank with the anti-parasitic medication, I would have to remove all invertebrates, is that correct? I have quite a few tiny snails in there that I don’t know if I would be able to get out… I was thinking maybe I could properly cycle the quarantine tank and then move all five seahorses in there for the four days required for treatment, but maybe I should try to get it done ASAP for Tigger’s health?? What do you think?
Lastly, the female H. Angustus that I mentioned before with the weak snick does not appear to be improving as much as I would like. It has been about a week since I noticed it. She doesn’t really look underweight, so she must be eating something but it is a lot of work for her. Does the metronidazole and/or praziquantel help with that if it is infact a parasitic problem rather than a mechanical injury or strain?? If not, what is the course of treatment you would recommend? Non of the other four seahorses are showing any sign of weak snick…
