It's endogenous biotin, Tyrone.
Make your own biotin blocking kit or buy  RTU kit.

Also, endog. peroxidases are eliminated by 3% aq H2O2 ( saves methanol) for 10mins at RT
Also, don't bother with permeabilisation.....you've done all that by processing the tissue to Pwax
Also, use 10% Formalin.
That's what I use for my zfish Pwax  IHC

All suggestions:  imho.

Have a look in Histonet image archives for IHC Pwax sections of z.fish
