I had one fish die. It was skidding around the tank and scratching on the sides of the tank. I did a water change and was planning to dose the tank with prazi pro the following day but when I woke up the next morning it had died. After 7 days of prazi pro my fish seemed to be more active except on day 7 when they were really skiddish. I noticed that prazi pro lower my PH to 5. So i did another 50% water change and things got stable.
All fish are eating except for 1 that is constantly in a corner not eating. I ordered tetra parasite guard (recommended by Rick) to try to combat the scratching of some fish and hopefully get this 1 fish actively eating again.
Seen some noticeable growth this month, hoping to see more over time.

They are coming along nicely. I like the Leopards that I see in the background too. Might be worth trying the orange peel apatite stimulant that Paul posted about for the one that is not eating? https://www.bcaquaria.com/forum/new-w...stimul-196481/
I'll give it a try. Thanks!
I tried the orange peel technique left it for 24 hrs floating. Woke up and noticed an explosion of growth but also some white long feces. I did a water change and took out the orange peel. 1 turquoise was skidding around the tank right after so I dosed prazi pro again and added api aquarim salt to help with there breathing during the medication. Still haven't recieved my package of tetra parasite guard.. all seem to be stable again.
If the white feces continue metronidazole would be the best treatment. The good news is that it is one of the ingredients in Parasite Guard.
