Seahorse with Tail Problem – follow up


Hi Pete, well it has been 7 days that the seahorse has been in the hospital tank with the Neoplex and Triple Sulfa and 5 days that she has been eating the mysis shrimp with the Metronidazole/Focus/Garlic Guard and not any change at all. Their is no signs of white spots or tail tip turning white or peeling, it is very odd that she acts as if does not bother her as she tries to grab a hitch and misses and she has wrapped her tail around her back or snout then falls to the bottom and after a minute or two she gets up and finds a hitch again. I know this may sound ridiculous but it looks almost as if she had a mini stroke and it just takes her a bit longer to hitch, but she does drape her tail over objects and it does look like the problem is more toward the middle to the top part of the tail not the bottom part. I really feel so sorry for her and not sure what else we should do to get her through this. Do you recommend any different medication we should start or should we finish up with this medicine for the remainder of the 10 days. In the last post I listed the other medicine we have available right now just in case we needed to switch. Any help would be greatly appreciated and again we thank you for all your expertise.
