 Hi,
 
 My  zebra  danio  fry  are  about  2  months  old  now.  
 
 They  came  through  a  bout  of  ich  about  a  month  back  which  was  treated  for  3  weeks  with  salt  and  Rid-all.  The  ich  cleared  and  I  continued  the  treatment  for  a  week  after  the  last  spot  was  gone.
 
 There  are  about  40  fry  in  a  2  foot  tank  BB.  I  do  regular  WC  and  feed  them  flake  food.
 
 A  few  days  back  I  noticed  that  they  were  swimming  with  clamped  fins  and  some  of  them  had  started  getting  bent  spines.  On  closer  inspection  found  there  was  fungus  growing  on  them.  Since  I  did  not  have  a  light  on  the  tank,  I  failed  to  notice  this  earlier.
 
 Some  of  the  fins  seem  a  little  golden.  Could  this  be  velvet??  How  do  I  tell??
 
 I  have  added  rock  salt  and  Rid-all  again...  Any  thing  else  I  can  do  to  get  rid  of  this.
 
 
 Raising  these  fry  has  been  a  real  hassle.  They  seem  to  fall  ill  so  often    Sad    although  its  probably  my  fault...  Crying or Very sad  
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 IMO,  for  fungus  &  velvet  Protozin/Formalin  is  best  treatment...  Once  I  had  the  problems  with  my  guppies  after  dosing  Protozin  they  recovered  fully...

 Hi  Ajai,
 Can  I  use  protozin  in  a  planted  tank?
 I  cannot  increase  the  temperature,  melafix  is  not  effective,
 I  cannot  use  rid-all  and  salt  too..
 an  important  point..  I  cannot  treat  them  in  hospital  tank..  as  it  is  not  possible  to  catch  the  infected  fishes  in  a  heavily  planted  tank
 
 Thanks,
 G.Senthil  Kumar

 Hi,
 
 My  danio  fry  responded  very  well  to  Salt  and  Rid-all.  fungus  all  gone...  Thumbs Up  
 Still  going  to  continue  the  treatment  with  salt  for  a  few  days  more.
 
 I  change  close  to  50%  water  everyday.  Its  a  barebottom  so  no  problems  using  medication.
 
 Sen:
 Maybe  you  could  trap  the  fish  using  some  of  the  descriptions  on  the  net  for  building  fish  traps  for  planted  tanks  using  cut  PET  bottles.  I'm  sure  its  do-able  using  some  ingenuity  Smile
 
 Do  you  have  many  denisonii  in  the  tank?
 
 Regards,
 Venkat

 Yes  Melafix  needs  higher  temp  to  work  prop.

 IMO,  Salt  should  not  be  used  on  planted  tank  also  medicines  should  not  be  added  on  planted  tanks.

 Hi  Senthil,
 
 I  have  used  protozin  in  my  planted  tank.  Good,  but  the  dosage  is  a  lot  for  a  show  tank.
 
 Rid-all  has  acriflavine,  expect  your  plants  to  slow  down  after  dosing  Rid-all.
 
 Best  bet,  enlist  spouse  for  dennisoni  capture,  one  person  drives  the  fish  into  the  other  net.  Tedious  affair  but  can  be  done.

 You  cannot  add  salt  at  effective  doses  to  a  planted  tank.  Please  isolate  your  fish  and  proceed  from  there.
