may was to link it to the OP. I do not see it on Amazon.
I’m sorry. I purchased (but canceled) the wrong item. They don’t have it on Amazon. They have something called “fin and body cure” and I read it as furan 2. I was rushing and was eager because I’m nervous for my fish. Stupid mistake of mine.

I will most likely just purchase that $100 bottle. Because there’s no way my tang will survive by the time the furan 2 that Tamberav posted will arrive.

I just ordered it from Amazon. Coming this Friday.
Hey I was able to find API Furan2 at a local pet shop in key largo called keys kritters. It came in a box with 10 little packets for $19.99. They only had the one box though. They also had multiple boxes API fin and body cure which the guy said works the same?

Did this guy make it?
Yes, thankfully, he’s doing much better. Seeing improvement every day, fins are regrowing back quickly.

Congratulations! It looks much better. Could you share how did you end up treating it?
Thanks I’m really happy he’s doing better.
I treated with API Furan2 for only two days when I noticed he started developing white spots which looked like ich(attached pics are from 12 days ago) Even after only 2 days on Furan2 I already noticed a decline in fin rot so I stopped the Furan and did a 100% Water change and began a copper treatment with coppersafe at 2.5ppm to treat for ich. He’s currently on day 12 of copper. Been doing daily 10% (1 gallon) water changes, while vacuuming out any uneaten food daily. Trying to keep water as clean as possible. He’s eating “omega one super veggie green seaweed” and “new life spectrum probiotic pellets.” He’s looking better every day so hopefully after the copper treatment is done, I’ll observe him in the QT for a week or two in then transfer to my DT if all goes well.

Wow, that is a noticeable improvement. Poor guy, I thought it was not going to make it but its great that you managed to bring him back.
I'd be really careful with adding it to your DT if he was showing symptoms of ich. You might want to doublecheck you are following the full quarantine protocol. I used https://humble.fish/quarantine/ every time and have good success rate with it. (Zero diseases) Its hard to be patient but it pays off in the long term.
