 Hi  friends,
 
 I  purposely  posted  this  topic  in  this  forum  instead  of  Disease  and  cures,  because  few  days  back  I  posted  topic  abot  treatment  of  dropsy  in  which  I  got  replies  from  experts  and  after  some  reading  and  practically  treating,  came  to  conclusion  that  DROPSY  cannot  be  dignosed  fully,
 Nowdays  I  am  going  through  that  experience,  I  am  treating  my  FH  since  past  few  weeks  with  metronidezole  dosages  and  salt  baths,  FH  looks  good  afer  2-3  days  of  treatment  but  after  a  week  it  again  shows  illness,
 
 
 So  finally  I  was  thinking  to  despose  it,  as  I  cant  bare  more  to  see  him  suffering  through  pain...
 
 I  was  thinking  about  to  release  him  in  a  Lake  nearby  my  city  but  I  am  confused  that  will  it  affect  other  fishes  in  lake...as  He  still  have  his  aggresiveness  and  I  dont  want  to  trouble  fishes  those  who  already  in  that  lake....
 I  cannot  give  it  to  ant  LFS  guy  because  he  might  fool  any  newbie  by  selling  it.
 
 
 So  guys  please  give  me  some  good  suggestions  regarding  this...

 Do  not  release  him  into  any  water  body.  You  will  not  be  helping  your  flower-horn  in  anyway  but  instead  cause  harm  to  the  native  fishes  in  the  waterbody.
 
 Instead  I  would  suggest  mercy  killing...........get  some  clove  oil  from  the  local  pharmacy......add  100  ml  to  a  litre  of  water  and  release  your  flowerhorn  in  it............He  will  just  pass  out  Sad

 While  Indian  judiciary  debates  on  the  ethics  around  euthanasia,  don't  allow  it  to  bother  you.
 The  debate  is  around  humans  and  will  continue.
 
 Do  what  you  think  is  best  for  the  fish  and  you.
 But  please  please  dont  release  it  into  any  local  water  body.  
 Wonder  what  made  you  think  it  will  help  the  poor  fish.

 @hems:  try  not  killing  your  fh,  my  fh  was  ill  with  hexa  for  3  months!!!!!  &  just  last  week  it  got  better  when  i  read  &  followed  icysworld(abhishek)  advice,  if  your  fh  is  aggressive,  eating  food  then  dont  kill  it  u  still  have  a  chance-
 i  will  post  the  deworming  method  given  by  abhishek-
 for  deworming  u  will  have  to  starve  him  for  2  days  first
 to  build  up  appitite  then  do  a  20%w/c  .Tablet  to  be  used  is  Drontal  Plus  .Its  a  deworming  tab  for  dogs-buy  only  2  tabs,  (they  are  expensive  &  difficult  to  find)  Use  1/4  tab  and  mix  in  the  tank,half  of  1/4  tab  and  soak  dried  shrimps  in  this.
 Raise  the  temp  to  32  deg,add  epsom  salt  also.
 day  we  use  half  of  1/4  tab  soaked  in  shrimps
 next  day  we  use  1/4  tab  soaked  in  full  days  food
 3rd  day  same  1/4  tab  in  full  days  food
 4th  day  do  a  30%  w/c
 after  3  days  again  repeat  treatment
 to  cover  up  for  the  life  cycle  of  the  worms.  Then  after  15  days  repeat  cycle  the  second  cycle  remove  the  bio  media  in  the  filter.other  med  to  be  used  at  all.
 did  he  pass  white  poop??  hexa??  if  yes  do  this-  add  Metrogyl  IV(not  4  but  IV  its  a  liquid  so  will  dissolve  easily  unlike  tablets)
 1/4  bottle  to  the  tank  frst  day
 and  then  add  1/4  bottle  on  2nd  day
 store  med  in  fridge
 adjust  according  to  your  fish.
 "NEVER  GIVE  UP"
 READ  THE  WHOLE  FORUM  FOR  HOW  IT  WAS  DISCOVERED-
 http://www.flowerhorncraze.com/index.php?showtopic=61054
 then  after  deworming  add  the  rest  1/2  bottle

 Can  you  post  some  pics  of  the  Sick  fish?
 Like  wise,  dropping  the  fish  in  chilled  ice  water  would  help  it  pass  out  quick.

 Hems  just  try  on  devansh  suggestion.  don't  loose  hopes  and  patience  
 but  please  dont  leave  in  any  water  body  they  are  not  familiar  with  natural  condition  and  will  also  harm  the  other  fishes  in  there.  better  to  kill  him  yourself  rather  leaving  it  to  die  painfully

 Hey  hems,
 
 Give  it  a  try  once  more  and  I  was  reading  the  whole  post  and  was  feeling  bad  about  you  and  your  fish  and  then  I  saw  the  post  by  devansh95  and  I  think  still  there  are  hopes.Give  it  a  try  and  I  think  your  FH  will  recover.
 In  the  process  by  chance  if  he  dies  then  at  least  you  will  not  feel  so  bad.
 
 I  hope  he  recovers  soon.  Smile
