Boxfish in trouble...

Postby CameronYoung » Tue Dec 06, 2016 12:38 am

Anyone have thought on my boxfish that (in the last 36 hours) shows symptoms of bloat/dropsy? He's not able to easy orient and nav occasionally tipping or rolling. A fungal mass has appeared in the last 12 hours and has increased in size rather quickly. He is in QT and I'm treating with Kanaplex (1.5 dose ratio). He hasn't eaten in two days neither seaweed (his favorite) or my regular mysis/bloodword/brine frozen blend.
Stats: sal-1.026, pH 8.2, ammonia 0, nitrate 5-10ppm, nitrite 0, temp 78.
Main tank, 120g mixed reef- establish nearly 1.5 years, similar parameters. 15g changed weekly.
Appreciate any suggestions / comments - I don't want to lose this guy he's defiantly one of my favorites!!
