Busy day yesterday. Never got around to doing a water chance. Also thought I was getting over the worst of the problem, and could move to water changes every other day. Big mistake - two dead tropheus this morning, and one gasping at surface. The gasping one looks beyond help. This is nastier than I thought. Wondering if I have to return to Clout. :(

Doing a big water change as I type.

Looking at the photos of the dead fish I am pretty sure that it is not bloat that kills them. Clout is a very stong and abrasive medication. I usually have some in my fish room just in case I detect bloat in my tanks. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

Hi Frank,
I wonder how the whole thing ended up with you, I know it's been very long, just wondering. Hope you didn't have any problems
