    Sick Fowleri Tang, Need Help

    Thanks Ccampbell. Any idea as to what may be the cause of this? If at all possible, I would like to know or better understand how to prevent something like this in the future. Could it be a bacteria infection? I know that Myracin 2 helps with bacteria infection; if I am unable to get him out of...
