The fish I had during my illness died from my neglect...is what I assume.
I pulled myself together and sorted everything out and added new fish to replace the ones I'd lost.
Everything was good for around 2 weeks-ish. I added 3 coconut shells and started using API the following week.
I then started noticing the fish flashing and acting off....when is when I started this thread.
I took out the coconuts and commenced with the salt treatment.
The fish improved some, but I euthanised a bloated cherry barb that had a red patch on her that I surmised was a bacterial...(that was the post that confused Colin) there has also been white poop from a few of the the fish but nothing long or stringy that I can remember, there had been a lot of plant melt from the salt treatment that the fish have been eating.
A little while after that was the bloated Praecox and the TB drama. I euthanised it.
I've been doing lots of water changes. I went back to using Prime for a reason I can't remember but when I switched back to API, the fish started acting off again.
I'm sticking with Prime.
I have 2 female Praecox getting skinny.
On Colins advice I've ordered NT labs anti fluke and wormer to treat the tank for worms...
Are we caught up? I hope I've made sense as I don't know how else to explain
