Thanks for reading any help would be appreciated. Without going into major detail of my set up (which is a 75 gallon freshwater close to 10 years old) I am absolutely stumped after bringing home a few additional dojo loaches a couple months ago. The following symptoms began within 48 hours. They keep breaking out in fin rot, and there is some white (cottony, ummmm fluffy, ummmm slimey) stuff that appears to float around and collect on the intake of filter. I am unable to locate any source of this goop, it just kind of floats around, not alot of it by anymeans just enough to notice.
I've been treating with an assortment of antibiotics/antifungals lastly "Binox". And I seem to get them looking healed (though the white goop still appears on intake of filter). When just as I'm about to put carbon back in and think I got the problem licked, BLAM there go the fins looking all ratty again.
I've contacted the store where I bought these last fish imploring for some insight because I am positive that something funky came from his shop. No I was not rude, I understand no one has complete control. Still I was met with deniability. As stated before this tank has been a hobby of mine for years and I've never seen anything like this. The only new factor was a few dojo loaches.
In advance thanks again if anyone knows of a disease with these symptoms (fin rot, white goop free floating in water). A treatment is desperately sought after.
