    Thank you for being compassionate enough to go through this. The first thing I do in the mornings (and the last thing at night) is check on Baby Dory

    I'll try that! I'm not all that savvy with technology, my wife had to set my R2r account up originally, then show me how to post something, and then show me how to use YouTube. I'm starting to catch on though

    I figured it out, here's a side by side of her improvement after one month of proper care!

    Wow! What a story. Great job nursing those tangs. Sorry about the yellow tang. You're doing a fantastic job.

    I still wish we could have saved the yellow tang but at least Baby Dory is still here and doing so well!

    I'm very impressed with this. I hope the HLLE clears completely, but even if it doesn't, this is a really great recovery.

    I'm feeding her food soaked in selcon and vita-chem each night and Grindal Worms every morning. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but if it leaves scars it will be her badge of honor

    I've been putting it in the tank every day but so far she ignores it for the most part. I've been using Julian Sprungs purple, red, and green sea veggies. Since she wasn't eating them much I got the lrs herbivore frenzy and she loves it

    @ngoodermuth, I was just looking at my dt and saw my diamond goby yawning and swimming up to the cleaner shrimp to get his gills cleaned. I really hope the flukes didn't somehow make it into my dt. Before I got Baby Dory I did do a couple treatments with prazipro and I know I am managing ich but it very seldom makes an appearance. My other blue hippo isn't showing any signs of distress besides an occasional flash that I was attributing to the fact that I'm still managing the ich at this point.

    The goby will be very hard to catch so I was thinking of catching a slower fish to do a fwd on and checking for flukes, do you think that's a good place to start?
