Beardedbillygoat1975 Posted February 19 Share Posted February 19 (edited) I am treating hole-in-the-head in my 45 g Amazon tank with metronidazole in their food daily. I am seeing some changes in the lesions on the head of the GBRs that are affected. None of the other fish have been affected this far. I really want this treatment to succeed and so I’m looking at once we’ve completed a month of metro what’s next. One of the suggestions for preventing it is better biofiltration. I am using a mattenfilter and undergravel filtration with a powerhead and sponge in the opposite corner. My options: add a powerhead to the mattenfilter to increase turnover; add a UV sterilizer +- a canister filter; or both. It’s a typical situation for me in that this tank is over stocked and my exuberance for the hobby has led me to a really nice tank but it’s got some flaws. I could thin out the stocking a bit maybe move the cherry barbs out. Lots of options but thanks for looking and your support. Have fun everyone.
