Looking for Fomalin Solution - Brooklynella outrbreak

Recommended Posts

I lost my Kole tang yesterday, and he had no real signs of disease other than a few white blotches on his front fins. Today, my Flame angel and clownfish have what looks like Brooklynella.

I have called Cuttlefish, The Wet Spot and Pets on Broadway, nobody seems to have any formalin solution in stock. Does anyone in the NE PDX area happen to have some I can use and I will get you back. From what I have read, this will kill the fish within 72 hours if not treated and it's been at least 36 hours since the tang had signs of something wrong.

 

If anyone can help, please IM me. Thank you!

Thanks Sean, I'm trying Seachem's Paraguard with my clowns in a QT. The directions don't give you much information other than the dosage amount per volume of water, so I'm going to do the 5-days of treatment as you would with other medications and see how they are doing. They survived the night and the first dosage, hoping for the best.

Try dipping fish in 60-75ppm of hydrogen peroxide for 30min. Use clean saltwater, add 1ml of 3% hydrogen peroxide per 1 pint of saltwater. After dip fish for 30min, place fish in disease free QT.
