Never had issues using table salt with any kind of fish in my experience so far including loaches and plecos. A 0.1% solution which is equivalent to a teaspoon per gallon will be fine. If your catfishes tolerate it a bit, you may add another 0.1% solution after 12 hours. I dissolve salt thoroughly first before adding. Most catfishes can tolerate only to as much as 0.2% though.

Dang man! I was hoping at least one of us had good luck! I blamed myself for it not knowing nothing about sickness and using med's the first time; but you are more experienced and I was REALLY hoping for the best...

I have my 55g empty now that all are passed too, running carbon, large w/c the whole deal and I'm honestly scared to put new fish in any time I'm worried the bacteria will still live somewhere somehow and attach new fish
