Yes. In the US is can usually be bought at the pharmacy counter as it's used for tooth aches.
Still the exact same. Swims around a bit then settle on his side. Always on the left, if that means anything.Hmmm. How does one administer this? Would not anbusal or other toothache relief containing benzocaine have the same effect? Also sorry about your fish. Did it make it through the night? Any abrasions or other obvious trauma indicators?
I had an angel fish in my tropical aquarium that struggled like that for 2 weeks. Every time I went to catch her she managed to quickly dive to the bottom so I just waited for her to tire her out before I was going to euthanize her.I completely forgot to mention that the koi made a full recovery. Obliviously a swim bladder condition i guess. Had it inside the tank for 1 week with no signs of improvement. I couldn't bare euthanase so i just brought him back to the pond to die natural, well i hoped. 2-3 week later back to 100%.
