I give up !; Thai fish
Topic Started: Dec 30 2017, 05:25 PM (119 Views)
WTF .... I'm a professional reef and tropical aquarist with 50 years of experience. Why cannot I keep a flower horn bought from Thailand alive for more than 4 months. All water parameters are perfect etc.
First fish imported came down with ick the 4th day, no problem ,added salt and raised the temp.Month later .... Stomach hexamita. Used clear and now dead . Are these imports prone to diseases ? thank you

Welcome to FHRUS and the wonderful world of flowerhorns.

Flowerhorns are challenging to keep at first, however with time and experience they are a breeze to take care of!

Yes, most imported and store bought fhs carry internal parasites.. ICH can be treated with salt + heater at 30 degrees, it can also be treated with broad spectrum antibiotics. Hexamita can be treated with various meds, I make my own mix using metronidazole, praziquantel, pyrantel pamoate and febante.

Do ping any of us if you ever need any help!

FHRUS is a forum where you can get all the info you need, all you have to do is ask!!
Also, imported fish that come with diseases/dead should have a seller/transhipper protection. Dead on arrival (DOA) is one of the most basic protections that sellers offer buyers!
