    Who has a microscope that we can scope a few fish with?

    I sold mine to frank a while back. Frank, do you still have slides and cover slips? I need to scope some fish.

    I just had 3 clowns get smoked. I think it was Uronema, but it is possible it could be Brook. Maybe even a tiny chance it was possible Velvet. The reason why I say Uronema is because to this day itís the only one of the three that I havenít beaten yet. It would baffle your mind if I told you what all I did for these fish and just how resilient this parasite was.

    Iím currently talking with a few Aquatic veterinarians in the area and one in Western Australia who will take a dried sample and will identify the culprit. I have one fish in a small plastic bag (double bagged) in the fridge. I also have one survivor who is still showing signs of infection and can be scrapped now.

    I just need a scope. I guess Iíll buy another one soon. A YouTube video of HD signs and symptoms will follow this post.

    Iím near positive itís Uronema, but different fish are stronger and tolerate these things better. They also exhibit different behaviors when they become infected. All I know is there were never spots. It also didnít show the classic signs of Uronema, which is odd. However, Iíve treat Brook and Velvet and both respond fairly well with certain medications which leads me to think that this was neither of those two.

    Yep, I've still got plenty of slides and cover slips. It's a bit of a drive for you, but you're welcome to come visit your old scope.

    Sorry you didn't find Anthony, but I'm glad the microscope is working out well.
