Janelle Posted April 26, 2021 Share Posted April 26, 2021 I have a quarantine tank set up with plants that I am going to put into my big tank. I am almost finished hardscaping the tank and then I can add the plants and water. I purchased 3 platys for my son's tank and put them in the quarantine tank w/ my plants and ran them through an ick treatment. During that time one of them had babies so now there are fry in the tank too. Towards the end of the treatment I noticed they started getting fin rot. So, I started a med trio cycle last Thursday afternoon. Yesterday I was confident in my suspicions that all 3 platys have columnaris. 😑. This morning one the platys died and the other 2 are starting to display the same hiding sick behavior. Questions: Do I euthanize the remaining 2 fish or continue on with the treatment. They don't look too happy or healthy. What do I do w/ the fry? Do you automatically assume they have columnaris too? One of them is floating at the surface about ready to die. What about the plants? Are they now contaminated and is it a terrible idea to use them in my 75gal? I am just so worried about messing up my big tank that I have been working on for so long. Thank you for your insight and help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
