I had to treat my entire aquarium 55 gallons because of paracites...gill flukes and hole in the head disease. I used just PraziPro. It said to use one tsp per 20 gallons. I very slightly overdosed by a drop or so and my fish didn't eat for the whole 5 day period, as you said about your fish, they all just chilled. The just kind of hovered in the water and didn't swim much except when the betta or cory cats went to the surface for a bubble of air. Towards the end of the 5th day, I did a 50 percent water change. Early on the 6th day, I traveled 30 miles on 2 busses each way to get them live brine shrimp at the only place I knew I could get them. When I rinced 1 of the bags of brine shrimp and put them in the water, the fish went nuts on a feeding frenzy. After that, their appetites returned to normal eating flakes.Thank you, guys!
I'm keeping him/her in a separate bucket with Melafix and changing water every day. The fungus seems to be clearing up. He/she seems to be chill and not stressed at all. Although doesn't eat not flakes not pellets. I know they don't have to necessarily eat every day, but still. How long can he/she go without food?
