Fry with problems, show video

Postby Raul Basconcillos » Mon Aug 20, 2012 8:20 pm

Hello, I have a fry born 50 days ago. For 10 days some are dark and have a white coating on the body.

I medicated with costapur, for one week every two days. Now, no white coat, but continue dark and some have retracted caudal fin.

What you think?

Regards!!

Hi Raul :welcome:

Good job on the breeding :thumbsup:

It looks as though all fry are feeding well including the dark one's so maybe it's a slight bacterial infection......I've never heard of the product costapur :question: :?: :question: can you let me know the country of origin so I can research it please :?:

If they are feeding well then I would not suggest doing much or maybe a short salt dip :erm: as normally a dark skin means an external infection.

HTH.

Hi Toni, I am from Spain, costapur is a "Sera" product. I thought it was sold in Europe also. Today two fish have died.

Thanks for the help :smile:

Hi Raul,

I have never used that product so i'm afraid I cannot comment on it. Sorry to hear that you have lost some more fry.

Have you ever used PP before ??

Hi Raul,

Andrew Soh has written two very helpful books on discus, and as far as I'm aware the first one should be available in Spanish.

In one of his books he recommends a treatment for fry that have gone black and the treatment is a PP bath. This is why I asked if you have used it before or not as sometimes the dose level to treat the fish is close to killing them so it is not something that I would recommend for beginners..................JMO :wink;

If you are happy using PP then I have found two articles that are invaluable when it comes to bathing in PP.





Have a read of these and let me know if you think they will work. if you have any concerns then let me know :thumbsup:

HTH

Best Regards......................Tony

I used the PP with older discus, after four months.
Think that these doses are safe for discus 60 days?

Hi Raul :welcome:

I think 4 weeks old discus should be able to deal with the treatment. If you have concerns then take a risk with the the fry that look like they will not make it and treat them first to see how they cope with the treatment.

HTH.

Hi Raul,

Do you speak English or are you using software ?? Asking because if you do not speak English I will try not to confuse you with my discussion :wink:

Sorry, I wrote in Spanish in the previous post, has been an oversight :biggrin:

I wrote this exactly:

Hi Raul,

That is why i asked in case you were using software to translate :wink:

I would go with the short bath as recommended in the articles to start with and see how they cope.

Hi Raul,

Your English is far better than my Spanish. I love Spain and would love to learn more of the language :wink:

Best Regards........................Tony
