Okay, current situation:
I took out my last 2 angelfish and put them in a 5g for a treatment. Its some cheap stuff and I sort of regret it. Its the stuff my mom used some time ago that killed her cory catfish but saved her tetras. It seems to have got all of the "fuzz" off of the fish, however even with a treatment (1/2 a pill for 5g) it damaged the angelfish's fins...I'm not sure if they'll recover but they were on the verge of death so it was this or nothing. If nothing else they are swimming around in the 5g like they used to.
Now, for the 50g with 4x Raphael's...I've looked around at some treatments and it seems the "best shot" is coppersafe. The thing is, I've heard mixed reviews about using it with catfish and I'm wondering if there's any better solutions.
At the moment my 1 Raphael has the white eye (thanks redchigh for the link on treatments, it looks like one of these:)
A). Cottony white growth over lens of eye
Saprolegnia Fungus Forma-Green
-or- Copper Sulfate
E. The entire eye becomes cloudy from the inside out
Could be a parasite, i.e., flukes
Check the tank for parasites. If found, treat the entire tank with De-Los
. The fish may lose it's eye. (hope its not this one)
And my 2 striped that lived together longest have what I can only describe as a "mucous" on their bodies. The mucous may be natural but its not effecting my spotted ones at this moment. I've tried to get pictures of them but it hasn't turned out well.
I'm thinking coppersafe will cure both problems if the eye things A). Copper Sulfate is recommended, and Coppersafe says it will fix external parasites (visible spots, worms, rapid breathing, extra mucous).
I'll be at petsmart tomorrow so I'll be getting something to try treating the tank.
And, assuming whatever treatment I choose works how long will it be before its safe to restock fish?
~~~~~One other symptom that arose on my solid white angelfish before it died, there was red on its tail (blood streaks[?]) It only became visible literally an hr before death and it wasn't caused by any other fish.
