Seahorse tail rot

Seahorse tail rot

Postby kidzatheart » Wed Sep 08, 2010 1:20 pm

Hello everyone. I picked up three 4 month old erectus horses this past weekend at macna. I put them into a bare bottom tank by themselves since they are so small. It was a newly set up tank just for them. One of the babies tail is turning white and what I have read here it sounds and looks like tail rot. The other 2 horses look fine. The meds I have on hand are:
Formalin, neomycin, triple sulfa and methylene blue.

Will any of this help the baby? I have no idea what to do to treat this because I have never had this problem with my adult reidi horses.
Thanks.

I'm not positive but I believe that neomycin will work. I know for a fact that furan-2 works well and I have always used that. It's cheap and you can get it quick from drsfostersmith.com.

neomycin should work IME.
nitrofurazone or furan may be more commonly used
