Hello, still having a problem in one of my tanks. 2 of the female platties are very very irritated by something, one scratches just once here and there but one female is scratching a lot to the point where she's removing her slimecoat and now has a few tiny patches that look like fuzz starting this morning. I seperated her and have her in quarantine with some seachem polyguard but I just don't know what the cause was. I don't physically see anything on them and they're active and eating well, water params good most of the time though their tanks been fighting a mini cycle last 2 weeks its getting daily changes testing and monitoring. The ammonia is the only thing off atm and it's being kept under .50. She's been doing this for months though even when levels were zero. The other fish in the tank aren't affected. The white fuzzy bits are very small rn and just popped up today I believed are just a secondary from her itching on the leaves all the time. What's a safe medicine i can use for them? Something that treats parasites and secondary stuff. I have the seachem polyguard but the fish seem easily stressed using it in the past and she had 2 rounds of it when i bought them in quarantine months ago but still itches. What do you use to treat internal or external parasites that you've sound safe? Also is there a parasite med for both youve used thats safe to treat new fish as a preventative? There's so many options out there. I was looking at paraguard but not sure if it would be effective enough. Tank is planted with snails as well. Thank you! I need opinions please!
