B1gJ4k3 Posted March 16, 2022 Share Posted March 16, 2022 I've got a pretty heavily planted 125 community tank with an assortment of about 80 fish. For awhile, I had been seeing flashing and tried not to panic/play doctor. It eventually became clear that something was wrong though as more and more fish started flashing and having white, stringy poop. So, about a month ago, I treated the whole tank with a full round of General Cure (because that's what I had at the time). I even left it in after for a couple days before doing the initial water change and returned to my normal bi-weekly 50% water change schedule. Things seemed to improve, at least for a little bit. However, I recently started seeing the same symptoms again--flashing and white, stringy poop. This time, I went for Paracleanse. As near as I can tell, it's the same as General Cure, but I thought I'd have better luck. I'm on day 6 of treatment (no water change yet) and I'm still seeing white poop and some flashing. What should my next course of action be? I thought about trying to only catch fish that I see flashing or with white poop, but it's hard to differentiate between fish and there's at least 5 or 6 with white poop and catching all of them would be next to impossible in such a heavily-planted tank. Anybody got any bright ideas? Parameters: pH - 7.6 Ammonia - 0ppm Nitrite - 0ppm Nitrate - Who knows? API test kit reads at least 40. Tetra strips read around 20. ACO strips read barely 10. Hardness - 150ppm KH/Buffer - 40ppm Water Temperature - 78 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
