pH 7.6

Nitrite 0

Nitrate 10pp

Ammonia 0

Gh hard 150

KH high moderate 100

I gave my flowerhorn paracleanse via food instead of dosing the tank.

54g corner tank 81degree

Lil Spooky is a FH - for the last year he would only eat shrimp anything else he would ignore. I made a slurry of shrimp defrosted in fridge, focus, paracleanse, vitamin drops, and a pinch of epsom salt. Fed once a day for four days on the fifth day he would take the food in munch on it for a min then spit it out. On the fifth day white stuff came out of his pink wound/sore like a zit, lots of them.

What can you tell me about this situation? For the next two days lil spooky ate pellets, no problem!

Now looks like worms are coming out again.IMG_20230208_110357514.jpg.3208b05c73712d0c69d4a78e490c4dc0.jpgIMG_20230823_162137212.jpg.b581047b6d181e527916fb66a032f149.jpgIMG_20240201_180533647.jpg.a38f86acc671d2c219ec9967314630df.jpg

Possible hold in the head disease   it's difficult to say for sure that's the cause you can get white pus with hole in the head it's linked to nutritional deficiency and poor water quality and Hexamita parasite treatment for hole in the head is metroplex in food feeding a small amount twice a day for 3 weeks @moosepig

Spooky was on metroplex until he stopped eating and started to look like he has swim bladder bouyency problems. On day four fasting he has more control than before. Has new sore on the kok and it looks like maybe anchor worm on picture below. This isn't looking good.

Aquarium salt is special salt, I gather. It's not epsom or rock, kosher, sea or iodine table salt. Correct?

Should I add the aquarium salt to the 54 g of water or put it in a bucket first with prime?

Your help is much appreciated.
