Re:swollen chest cavity – Reidi Seahorse


Dear Pete,

Thanks so much for the great information. You are so generous to share all of this! I started a diamox bath last night, but I think I will run out to the local hardware store and pick up a tall rubbermaid container so that I can try the decompression approach (and simultaneously use the diamox) as you suggest.

I do have one question about this process…I hope you do not mind. In my homemade rubbermaid "decompression chamber" should I still run a cycled sponge filter? I have been using a cycled sponge filter with my reidi’s diamox bath since yesterday in order to keep the ammonia and nitrites from building up. Would it be wise to continue to use a cycled sponge filter in this decompression setting. Since we don’t want to lower the compression, I understand that we don’t want to make any water changes during the compression treatment. So is it wise to keep a sponge filter going to keep ammonia and nitrites down?

Thanks so much for your helpful advice!
