Weak snick help



          Again, let me thank you for all your expert diligent help with my pony. Tonight I gave him the fresh water dip you recommended. The water temp. and PH where matched exactly to the aquarium. He was in the dip for 12 exact minutes. He look fine the entire time, Moving around and hitching on his post. I then returned him to the aquarium. He then found a place to hitch and his breathing rate was very rapid. Much more than it has been throughout this issue.I assume that has to do with going into the fresh water and back. After a bit he was moving around and his breathing slowed to the before dip rate. # hours later I gave them their normal feeding. He ate mostly the same as the last 3 days. Shows much interest but not able to do a really good snick. If he gets a piece in his snout in the first try, his second snick looks a little stronger than before the dip. My questions are, If the dip worked how long before seeing good results. Is more than 1 dip required. Also, we try to feed him about every 4 hours during the day since he only eats about 3 mysis per feeding, giving him every opportunity to eat as much as he can. Is that ok. Thank you very much for your time helping with all questions in this forum. You are a great asset to Ocean Rider.

Thank you,
