    Good day,

    Its been more than 30 days and my 2 seahorses are still ill despite treatment.

    They are 2 seahorses in a 65 gallon tank, they are the only inhabitants therein.
    The water quality is perfect, 0 NH3, 0 NO2 and NO3, 0.04 Phosphate, SP 0.026.

    They are captive bread. They seem to be suffering a bacterial infection, probably brought on by the stress of the move from their store tank. They have been treated with Furan2 for 7 days and Kanaplex for 7 days. the Furan2 did halt the infection for some time but did not stop it completely. I can clearly see white ‘patches’ of skin deterioration and a lump under the skin of the big male. they have trooped through this treatment, the poor souls, still eating a few shrimp a day but they cannot shake the infection. I went to the fish store to see their siblings and they are as happy as can be.

    I have set up a separate tank for them and have just placed them there last evening, I see little improvement after 2 weeks of treatment, the deterioration has stopped but not healed, they are still very dark in color.

    ….What to do now?

    Many thanks,
