You could try medicated food if you can find it. I know that the Jungle Parasite Clear that I used did not affect the bio filter. Hope your platy gets better.
Sorry to hear that. Did you lose them to the same thing.....did they have the same symptoms and in the same tank?
I hope whatever this Platy has it will not transfer to my other fish. I have not even gotten my main fish yet, and I would hate to think there would be something that will be very contagious to other fish.
I remember in the past using a medicated food before. The thing is, if the fish does not feel well enough to eat, it won't help at all. I am not sure if this one is eating. It looks like he may be when I put food right above him. He is in the top right corner now not looking real well. I wonder how much fish feel when they are ill. Gee, I hate this part about having fish.
I have a Clydesdale that is itchy, and I am trying to figure out why and now I am worried about a Platy. With this many pets, it is always one thing or the other.
