Shoot, he is not looking good today.
He's pale, and when he swam up for a breath I noticed he's got some tears in his anal fin and tail. And one of his ventral fins looks is short and bloody. And he's keeping his pectoral fins sucked against his body. So basically every fish symptom you can think of :(

He's still responsive and still eating (feeding him antibacterial pellets).
I went ahead and put another dose of Tetracycline in there, since that's what I've got, and I fear doing nothing.
I also added some coppersafe (haven't added any after the last couple water changes).

Marmaduke died this morning.
I noticed pineconing last night, and though I didn't want to say it out loud, I thought he might not have long left.
But he fought a good fight.

RIP Marm.

Very sorry to hear that Marmaduke didn't make it, Bulldog. You tried everything! Whatever he had, sure had a grip on him.

Although your reports had a sad ending, it is helpful and inspiring to the rest of us to read through all of Marmaduke's symptoms and your efforts to help him. That was a very well cared-for fish.
