Question Pimafix and Coolie Loaches?

Something going on with my Tiger Barbs. Flicking against objects and scratching themselves on the gravel Bugger! I can see a tiny bit of fungus on one of there mouths otherwise no visable signs on anyone but they are every now and then scratching? SO Ive added Pimafix as per instructions but noticed my Coolie Loaches go mental!! Is it burning them? I know there scaleless so is it meant to be used half dose like other meds?? All Coolies are out and swimming up and down to the surface and just going a bit mad! Has anyone else noticed this happen with theres when theyve added Pimafix

Not an expert but...

Not an expert but based on my experience doing the same exact thing you did trying to cure fish barbs, I killed my loach. I'm sorry if this happened to you.

check out loaches.com forum.
They know everything about loaches. I don't think pimafix is good for scaleless fish.
You can do a 50% water change to calm them.
