    One of my cuttles now has obvious butt burn. Anyone have experience with putting antibiotics in the tank to help them heal?

    Thanks!

    Hi Jon

    is the site obviously affected by bacteria or anything? fungus?

    if not then i wouldnt even think of treating and even if it was, there is so little info out there about safe meds if would be a gamble.

    Best bet is to take out whatever caused the accident or put the cuttles into bigger tanks if possible.

    What size cuttle and tank etc? Probably asked before, sorry

    i dont know about this for cuttles or even salt water so DO NOT TRY IT UNTILL IT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED WHATEVER YOU DO - I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT...lol but i used to use mercurachrome on cuts and abrasions on my axolotls ie. when one bit of another's leg lol (kinda lol) However it is a POISON! U would not be able to add it to the water cos you have to let it dry for about 30 seconds - this may not be possible with cuttles...Collin, you know more about both cuttles and axolotls than any of us...help

    and dont forget - DO NOT TRY THIS UNTILL IT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED!
