Had to euthanize
Topic Started: Jan 11 2018, 02:08 PM (77 Views)
So after a month of treatments and my FH only deteriorating before my eyes I had to euthanize him to end his suffering. My guy contracted hth and fin rot and possibly flukes. I treated with both metro and prazipro. I was wondering what I should do as to ensure that all the parasites are gone. Do I need to tear the entire tank down and let everything dry out? Can I dose it heavy with meds? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

All the illnesses you have mentioned can easily be treated...

Euthanizing isnt recommended usually. Each of the treatments for these ailments is different..

Tearing down the tank isnt recommended, instead just empty the tank, clean it with plain water and a sponge, fill it back up again. Keep in mind that the nitrogen cycle will re-start in the tank which might take 3 to 6 weeks to complete..

There is no need to dose the tank with meds.

A quick suggestion, the next time you get a fh, ask questions, learn all you can and also post help needed topics here... There are treatments to all fh related ailments, catching the illness quickly with a definite id is the key and using the right treatment plan is a good way to ensure full recover.

Water quality and environment can either make a fh thrive or can cause it to fall ill.. Good luck
