    Are you still after this? If so I can probably get it next time I am at the British Library. Will be a photocopy but I can scan or post.

    I could well be wrong but I was under the impression that Kryptolebias marmoratus were smaller fish?

    I think these are Fundulus chrysotus

    Again without wanting to hijack this thread I think Sofia’s problems are probably related to water quality which often leaves fish vulnerable to (secondary) infection. I think you have been unlucky in that an aquarium when it is establishing is always less stable than an established aquarium. This probably takes at least 6 months

    The raised temperature (which can affect the bacteria thought to be Nitrobacter and Nitrospira which live in the filter combined with the treatment (s) IMO do have a detrimental effect on the filter and ultimately the water quality exactly when the fish are most vulnerable or are suffering the most.

    Obviously treating the fish I the lesser of two evils and for what it is worth I agree with the advice given above. If it were me I would keep an eye on water quality and try to keep things as stable as possible to allow the fish to recover.

    Observation (which you are clearly very good at) &
    Patience
    are what you need and things should start to sort themselves out.

    Keep water changes fairly small and if water quality starts to deteriorate then increase the frequency.
    I would keep treating with Melafix (IMO a bacterial problem)
    drop the temperature back down as it should have done the job by now (keep an eye open for whitespot return tho)
    And remember that all bacterial treatments like probably (most/all) treatments generally damage the filter bacteria. So be prepared to water change as necessary (while trying to let the tank settle as much as possible) a bit of a balancing act I know – but put it down to experience.

    If the problems continue let us know there are more things you could try but I think for now keep it simple and give it some time

    Think I may to start with, until I am confident, everything is not going to drop dead……

    Certainly wouldn’t hurt, you probably don’t need a conditioner (though some types are helpful at neutralising heavy metals). Traces of which in theory could be introduced – Personally I think you would have to do a lot of water changes over a long period before any accumulation occurred.
