I have 2 tiger oscars in a 50 gallon tank. Sun Sun canister filter with UV and airstones for aeration.
Last week one of the Oscar developed HITH - 75% water changed immediately and added rock salt.
After a day, observed the second Oscar stopped eating and affected with HITH. Went to LFS and bought ocean free FH2 & FH4 due to no stock of API general cure. Along with this, a conditioner was also provided.
50% water changed, conditioner added and administered FH2 for a week. 30% water changed, conditioner added and administered FH4. No sign of healing but the hole size started to increase with bloody and rotten fins. Once received the general cure, made 50% water change, conditioner added and administered the 1st dosage. Day before the second dosage and tonite 30% water change is scheduled. He has become bit active and the bloody fins have disappeared, but his eyes are literally popping out and it looks like unable to swim (bangs on the rock and glass often). Temp is set to 30deg. I could also see tiny white particles attached to the corner of the glasses and tiny worm like creatures swimming in the water. After increasing the temp, this has disappeared. What should be my next course of action?
All this while and till now the first Oscar hasnt developed any more holes and is very active as usual, even eats.
