Well one of my new juvie red zebras seemd to have come down with bloat as it was displaying all of the classic symptoms. I do not have a hospital tank so I decided to treat with met mostly to prevent the other fish from getting sick. IT has been a week and the little guy is eating again and swimming normally. He or she is back to chasing the other juvies and seems much better. I also switched regular NLS to NLS thera. I am going to do a water change today and keep up the met treatment for another couple of days. Guess I got lucky :thumb:

Metronidazole does a great job. :thumb: Why did the fish become ill? Don't forget to solve the root cause of the problem, so it doesn't happen again. :)

It might have been stress related I did a lot of changes to the tank, all water parameters are good plus it was a relitive new fish keeping an eye on things and checking regularly. All other fish are healthy.
