Pats on the back for the maximum effort you are putting forth. Fingers crossed for something positive.

So tonight was the last Parasite Guard treatment. Not a huge improvement but it seems the Peroxide bath did well. The 'angry' looking bumps dont look so bad today. I am going to do another bath tomorrow. I also decided to do the force feeding med/food mix tonight. I still feel there is a bacterial issue and parasite. Getting the meds in the fish I really feel is the key.

Do what you feel like you need to do. Provided you know what you're doing with the forced feeding (which you definitely do from reading your old thread on that other forum) getting the antibiotics into the fish instead of around the fish is definitely the most effective method.

Only thing I'd suggest is with the peroxide bath is to do it daily, if you can. Still planning on using the copper when it arrives?

How is the fish acting? I can't imagine the frustration you are dealing with, not knowing what the problem is,.I would love to offer something other than best wishes, but that is all I have at the moment.

Chunk is acting like a typical Oscar through this all. Still shows no symptoms. I held back from the daily baths due to the original info saying to do it every three days. I was going to do it every two but I think the daily would likely be good. I will do a copper treatment right before I leave on vacation.
