Hello all, I'm new here. I have two questions about my green swordtails. One of them is clamping her fins (almost constantly) but has no other apparent symptoms. I tried Parasite Guard first (2 doses over 4 days) and then switched to Clout yesterday.

1. Since starting clout, ALL fish (including those that seem completely healthy) have been having white poop (not thin or stringy or slimy, just white). Ideas why?
2. I predissolved the tablets in a cup before adding to the aquarium, but there is a lot of white powder that settled at the bottom. Is this normal?

Thank you!
