HELP HELP HELP

My Gouramis have white spote/ich so treated them today. Gave them the right amount of treatment for the litres in the tank but now my red tailed shark has lost all colour in his tail and is fading to a light black, my black neons dont have there black stripe anymore and their all moving slower than normal...
Any suggestions as to what it is..?

Believe you should have quarantined the fish with ick. Then treated them. Now that you've treated them along with fish that didn't have it, I'm unsure. Sorry I couldn't be of help but I'm sure others on here with more knowledge will be able to. Hope all goes well.

What size is your tank? And can you post your water parameters? and what kind of fish do you keep in it?

How long has your tank been set up for? Did you cycle it?

Fading colours would point to water condition problems IMO.

Are you sure its ich? What types of medication did you use? I'll give you a really good salt treatment to cure ich so your not dumping meds into your tank. Provided you have no scaleless fish its the best treatment.

You should do a small water change like 25%, just in case.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.

The water parameters have been the same since we started adding fish.

Theyv Always been fine with the water conditions as they havent changed, just since i added the treatment.

Are you sure your using it right? A cycled tank would never have zero nitrates. And there shouldn't be any ammonia in your tank. It could be whats causing the loss of colour.

Woah, I didn't even realize. Those liters always throw me off.
Your tanks only like 15 gallons You should find a home for your red tailed shark...
