Not the best update, but I'm a big believer in updating journals when things go wrong as well as well, well.
Euthanised a CPD last night, the only one to have not improved since treating the tank. Symptoms started as what looked like a missing scale and so I gave the fish the benefit of the doubt, did an extra water change, and did a second round of slightly stronger dosing. Wound continued to be minor until suddenly progressing over 48 hours, and the fish began showing signs of stress.
Photo shortly before euthanasia:
No other fish showing any symptoms, and no fuzz, parasites, or discoloration were around the hole. It's got me paranoid though, so keeping a close eye.
0 Ammonia, 0 Nitrite, ~5 Nitrate (Have been doing larger water changes, haven't been dosing ferts during the issues, and tank is an understocked jungle right now. Shook the sh*t out of the nitrate test & bottle)
pH between 6.8 and 7, 2dkH, 4-5dgH, temp 24C.
All other CPDs showing natural behaviour, including the beginning of what looks like spawning. Might separate some to breed in the 5g after all this flat moving is done and if all is well.
In happier news, look at the difference in my badis! Very very attached, can't believe how big she's grown.

P.S I know the tank is an algae farm, just really don't have time to be dealing with algae right now. The shrimp seem to enjoy it at least.
