My Dehanes are very unwell
I suspected fluke, velvet or white spot
So I treated the Dehanes Separately and have had no luck.
The female Dehane responded badly to the multi cure medication.
I don't know if it's because she is so small but she almost died when I treated her.
I had to put her in the main tank again and she bounced back.
I am now at a loss..
I have no idea what they have and I have no idea how to treat it and I am at the limit of my knowledge.
The symptoms are now,
- rapid breathing.
- fits by the male
- and odd mouth movements (like they are chewing something that's not there.)
- Stopped eating.
- hiding away and completely lethargic
They have no visible change and they have not lost their colouring.
Their fins look fine (clear and not tattered)
I have now tried heat and salt and both have not worked.
No other fish are effected or showing the same signs.
I have tried to treat with my multi cure which tackles fungus, white spot and velvet disease.
I have tried leaving the light off over two days and nothing is working.
So I have thought of some ways to tackle this,
- Ether reduce the amount of multi cure I use and re treat them.
- looking at maybe treating for fluke?
- look at treating for internal parasites.
They are steadily going down hill and I feel that it could be the end especially for the female in the next few days.
some other points of reference,
I removed the male as I was concerned the multi cure was having a negative impact on the fish but when I put him back in the main tank he was more active then ever and got to work excavating a pit Could it be the medication is effecting the female as she is smaller. would it be worth while retreating but at a smaller dose?
Cheers for any help guys.
