Internal Parasite treatment. Treat the tank if thats all your options, but as with any thing nasty like that quarenteen if poss. And be aware it will not do your bugs much good in the filter and so forth.

i would soak the food in the meds so it gets in system quicker. you might need to do the whole tank cus if one eat the pooh of the sick one he can get it too.

Medicated foods are available at your lfs. Quarantining is advisable. However, all fish in the tank may be infected. Treating the tank should be treated in this case.
