Please let me know as soon as possible. I have already lost my red tail shark. Hopefully, that's the only one I will lose.
If the filter holds cartridges that contain carbon,then remove these cartridges(leave filter running) or they may remove medication. (depending on how long the cartridges have been in place).
If the cartridges are more than two week's old,,then you won't need to replace them for the carbon is only active for maybe two week's.
Would not feed the fish during medication and would keep an eye on ammonia,nitrites.(perform water change if they rise above .25ppm
Would place new cartridges in filter after treatment is over.
Would follow direction's on med's.(more is often not better).
