Default is it white-spot, velvet or both?

well, the upside down catfish is spot/velvet-free, looks totally
recovered.
i lost all three clown loaches (i saw some in a shop today and they
look SO small, i am going to wait a few weeks and try to find some
bigger ones)
and 6 bleeding heart tetras.


Make sure the tank is free of parasites before you get the new ones. I
bought some new fish today also. They're acclimating in a 2g aerated tank as
I write this. I'm going to dilute my rock hard water with rain water I
collected in a clean 30g plant tub.

I have seen a make of medicine online called eSHa, they do a medicine
for velvet & white spot and another for bacterial infections, fin rot,
body rot, tail rot, pop-eye etc etc, but the best thing is you can use
them both together, which means you can treat for just about every
common condition at the same time, if only i had known about them
sooner i may not have lost any fish at all!


You may want to think about keeping them on hand. I always have fish
medication on hand for emergencies.

anyone heard of ESHA before?
