Hi! So my tank is now cycled and water parameters are perfect, however while it was still cycling, my guppies were nipping each other, and got finrot. I wasn't sure if that was fin rot at first, so did not rush to do anything, just kept on adding fresh water. But unfortunately, every fish developed a weird discolouration around te edges of their tales and one's top fin, and the tails started getting disfigured. Also, they started looking a bit pale, but were eating, swimming around as normal. I read so many good reviews on Myxazin, so decided to give it a go. I followed instructions, did not overdose, but as soon as it entered the water, my guppies eyes become jet black and being very friendly and active fish before, they have become lethargic, just sitting at the bottom, sometimes just hovering in the middle of the tank not moving much and then starting to swim erratically for a second, then nothing much again. They are also now scared of me approaching them through the glass, hides from the sight of my finger, although they did come to eat. The whole situation really freaks me out and I wonder if I should stop the treatment, as I figured this is not a normal response? All the reviews of this medicine that I have found stated that it improved fish's behaviours and condition quickly and it is mild on the fish, but it seems to be the complete opposite for us! Please share your thoughts and experiences, because I am one scared fish mom...
