Internal Parasites Help
 
Clear Poop, matted tail, lack of appetite?

Sounded like internal parasites, so I'll be able to go to the pet store tomorrow, what should I grab?
There are 2 swordtails that have it, in a 55gal with probably 20 other fish. Should I quarantine them?

I've added salt, raised them temp, and added ick away because it seemed as though my swords had that as well.

I know, a mess, I'm sorry :( so what can I do? Thanks

well stop adding chems for things that you are not sure of. quarintine the sick fish perform a 50% w/c in the main. google the symptoms and maybe someone will chime in or youll find something. sorry to hear your fish are sick.

absolutly find out what you are treating for before you OD the poor little guys and girls..... ask at your LFS for some advice and i have also heard of people calling a vet or aquarium to get advice from experts.... hope all gets better

just thought of this, i remember back when i just started when i was like 14-15 i remember calling the local zoo which had a aquarium and i asked them for advice followed what they said and within days all was well.

Jungle Anti-Parasite Medicated Fish Food is the only thing that has worked for me. I definitely suggest it...then hope your fish aren't picky eaters :/
