no deaths since the start of the treatment

That's great news. Sounds like it was a success.

So did you end up using JBL Furanol?

We don't get any JBL products in Australia. Don't know why.

Lets hope so! :) I just want to see the rust markings go away to be sure now. 

Yes the product name was JBL Furanol 250 (Furanol 2 was renamed or something).

I also don't get JBL products in Portugal anymore, my friend told me he got them from a Spanish Online Store.

Does the instructions say anything about doing a repeat treatment ?

if not you should do another dose one week after the first.

Yes it says it can be repeated the 7th day if the problem persists.

Repeat it!

even if you don't see it. Your eyes cannot see bacteria.

Yes today got some sad news, the berried tiger died, she had no rust marks nor anything. Nitrates were around 15mg/litter, could be it and the stress of being berried or she was just sick. Now I'll try to hatch the eggs artificially.

I will repeat treatment and increase a bit the dosage (it was also said it could be done in the instructions, instead of 2 tablets per 50 litter i could use 2 per 25 litter)

Ok second dose of treatment is almost over but I bring sad news about the tank with the Pinto Shrimp. 

Besides the female in fig1 that died before the second dosage I lost a red tiger female and a young tiger today. The pinto is more or less in the same situation I don't see improvements nor is condition getting worst.

Little update:

On the pinto tank one of the Blue bolts got berried not sure what to think after the tiger that got berried died. 

Went to the vet and they only found Oxytetracicline as an eye ointment not on pills. At this point I'm getting more and more to the point where I want to sterilize my tanks, heaters, filters and nets with bleach, get new substrate and restart all my colonies but I started noticing something, most online shops with Taiwan Bee shrimp photos has some shrimps with those same markings except I edited my photos increasing the light a bit to be better show the markings so I'm starting to guess this is totally normal and is not a disease. Could it be? Should I see some eroded zones on their shell?

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
