Got a decent 400X microscope, float solution, slides, covers etc. Just went through all my larger pits and found one with definite coccidia. He had just started having runny stools too.

So I'm really glad I was able to ID at least something, but it sucks that he had it. He's on day 2 of 50ml/kg Albon and then 3 days off followed up by another 3 day round. Then I'll check again.

The coccidia was instantly apparent as a parasite. It had a cell wall with 2 or 3 smaller "cells" inside of it. It jumped right out as being different.

My concern now is that every single bubble I see will cause me to become overly paranoid. lol

I'm glad I invested in the equipment. Now I need to start making my own float solution. lol
