Hello Guys,

i really need help dont know what to do.

i have a full grown BN pair + few frys in my 4ft, just after 12hours the parasite treatment started, i noticed this morning all fish lost abit off color and looked very down..
some BNs looked like marble bns due to stress i guess.
but the bigger problem is they dont eat anymore??

i did dosed as labelled. no overdose..
i made an 40% wc now
as clearly this is not doing them well but they ignore food and just sit at the same spot all the time...

only 2 of the smaller BNs are moving and only 1 is eating.

usually they fight over food and veg but now nothing?

Please let me know how i can help them.. hopefully i can somehow


PS.
it says
Para-gone treatment may adversely effect species of Plecostomus and Bristle nose type catfish as well as Silver Dollars.

but does not says what to do if it does ??

Well you have already used the med despite warning's for species mentioned.
Were it me,,I would perform 40% water change every 12 to 24 hour's to dilute any remaining medication and add some fresh carbon to the filter for same reason.
Would hold off trying to feed the fish for a few day's till they perk up.
Would also maybe add airstone,or lower the water level below the spray bar or return from filter to help with oxygen exchange via surface agitation.

i overlooked the warning because its starting off with: Do not treat marine shellfish etc etc so i thought ok skip that its not marine... my fault

i have Co2 in that tank and spray bar is pointing up + airstone at nights..

will keep doing big wc´s and see how it goes..
