Meds are generally stressful and harmful to fish, including pregnant fish. Why are you medicating?

Your first line of defense is always 50% daily water changes. IME the vast majority of problems stems from water quality. Changes can solve a lot of problems, not to mention prevent a lot also. Have you tested your water for ammonia nitrites and nitrates? How long has your tank been running?

IME, glancing when there are no visible signs of illness, is a water issue, most of the time. When I get glancing, a few water changes stops it. Good luck. Did glancing start at the same time as when you bought new fish?
