I'm curious how the saba will react.

Is he still flashing?

I have dropped the SG down to about 1.12 and have noticed a definite increase in flashing. At full salt water it was occasional not at a lower SG seems more frequent and am noticing a coughing motion again.

But going to a run a sulfa antibiotic and Fenbendazole concurrently and then run him back up to full salt water. There was definitely less black/grey belly at higher SGs.

Okay.
I hope the medication will help.

Keep us posted.

Why are you going to use medication? Are you afraid that increasing of the SG isn't enough?

well I had him at full salt SG for pretty much 5 days and the flashing continued, so that didn't solve the problem.

thus I am dropping to SG to make the 50% daily water changers easier and running to two different meds in case it is a bacteria or parasite gill problem. Kind of a shot in the dark.

Impressed by your dedication to your puffers :left thumb

Why the antibiotics? Is still get the feeling it's parasites that are the cause.

yes, running the antibiotic just in case, and I read that the sulfa meds are supposed to be highly effective against gill disease.

but this morning I awoke to a lethargic fish and then noticed this:

they are poor quality photos, but the one eye is starting to cloud over and there is something else going on in the lower left corner as well.

After I dosed the tank yesterday he began frequently flashing the one side against the glass and I noticed him pushing his eye in into his body against the glass several times also as well as a frequent twitching motion towards that side.

That is the enlarged side, the side that he was always flashing, and naturally at a loss for an explanation. Possible theory is that there are/were in fact parasites in that area which were affected by the fenbendazole and either exited the body and/or dies in the tissue. Hopefully the API Triple Sulfa will manage the cloudy eye, otherwise I will add a gram opposite antibiotic to whatever the triple sulfa is.

Pooh, poor little thing.
How is your water quality?
Sometimes eye’s could be cloudy ‘cause of an ammonia poisoning.

It could be a bacterial infection, or damage on the eye.
I can’t really see what’s going on in the corner. It looks like a air bubble or something, am I correct?

there is no dedicated test kit for brackish and according to API the best one to use is the freshwater although the colour charts will not match up ...

but I am managing the ammonia with Seachem Prime which I am comfortable with. I was skimming before and shut it down because of the meds and worst case shouldn't be able to spike too much in 24 hours anyways.

Plus it is only 1 eye and there seems to be a bubble like area the lower left area, so yes possibly trauma.
