Re:They are here… and I’m worried, have questions

Dear Carrie:

No, it’s unlikely your clinic would have methylene blue, unless they happen to keep some on hand for staining microscope slides and wet-mounts, which is a real longshot, since much better stains are available nowadays for such purposes — it’s primarily used for aquarium fishes. However, it is a very common fish medication that’s easy to find, and it will be readily available from most every fish store. Zinc-free methylene blue is best and you shouldn’t have any difficulty locating this inexpensive med if you need it, Carrie.

Most likely your Mustangs will show considerable improvement overnight, and you’re pregnant male’s breathing should gradually return to normal in the optimum water quality of your aquarium as he relaxes and begins to feel more at home.

Best of luck with the new arrivals, Carrie!
