Not downing your supplier at all. I remember reading your previous post that they were held up and just assumed he had them this whole time. Is the other one fine?

I also got a blue throat and a Harley tusk. Both fine. But neither deep water. I don’t know what to think. I always like to think the best of people but just some atypical things .

Get him/her fixed up Doc!! I have no advice, just wanted to point out that I would think a swim bladder issue would show up sooner (again, assuming the supplier had this fish for a few months) rather than right now. Just something else for you to consider. I hope it pulls through, these fish are not common but are so very beautiful!

Plan will be to do a needle decompression tonight!

After the needle and post procedure treatments, later when ready, giving the fish a 60 minute bath in methylene blue has had some very good results.
Best of luck with your fish. You've gotten some excellent advice.

Hey @Feet4Fish were you able to do the decompression last night?
I ends up not doing it as the seller asked me hold off and observe. He said if he did pass he would replace him. His policy Lee website is arrive alive and I found this generous. So I followed the seller’s directive but the crosshatch passed this afternoon.

Thank you all for the support and sympathy! He is one of my dream fish and it was heartbreaking to see. I have communicated with the seller today and he assured me he will source another male and QT him. He wants to only send this one through Delta Cargo. With such a high dollar fish and the fact that publicly he only advertises and arrive alive guarantee I am quite satisfied with his response.

So sorry for your loss its so sad watching these animals be unwell and not be able to do anything. I'm glad the seller is taking care of you, I've never had personal experience and do try to think the best of others. it's sad when these things happen and make you wonder about someone that could have potentially been completely honest and doing the best on their end.
