What is in your tank? You need to get all the healthy fish out and put them in another tank that doesn't have any fish. I need to know what is in your tank otherwise some medications will kill your fish.

I say use organic cure for about 1 week and put a UV steralizer on the tank. You will be fine.

For anyone who does not know this is what you need to try. Great just to help tanks out, even if nothing is bad with it. I do a treatment ever 3 months no matter what my tank is like.

I just read that it is not good for live rock though. SO that may be why none of you ever have used it before. But it works great.
