Seahorse with Tail Problem


Thank you Pete for all your knowledgeable information again, very much appreciated.  We did have the other medications to put in her mysis shrimp (metronidazole,focus and garlic guard), so I will add that to her food and see if their is any change, so far she is still acting the same and still eating well, she is not really hitching upright, she is hitching sideways and not hitching toward the top, she only stays near the bottom, that’s why we were unsure at first if we should going ahead with the Diamox or treat her for bacterial, after reading your reply about the tail draping over corals and the U shape, she does try to hitch then grab her back instead, so we will continue with the Neoplex/Triple Sulfa and the medicated food I will start ASAP and hope she improves.  We also have Kanaplex, Methylene Blue, Furan 2, Quick Cure, Prazipro, Paraguard, Sulfathiazole and the Diamox, just in case this method does not work. I will let you know her outcome and if no improvement in a day or two, we will try another method.  Thanks again for all your help.  Seahorsegirl
