We had just got new fist after cycling from our LFS. About a week later noticed white spots on some of our Platies and a fuzzy white coating at the tail fin junction of one of the platies. After doing some research decided to go with paragard. Started 2 days at half dose because we have 2 peppered Cory's. Everything was doing great so went full strength and on day 3 at full strength about an hour after dosing walked by and noticed all platies and our 2 DG at top water completely lethargic and one cory suspended in a plastic plant and the other listing to the side on the bottom both gasping. Ran a panel ammonia 0 nitrite nitrate both 0 ph 7.4 temp 77. Decided to do a 50% water change incase it was the medication within minutes after starting to add the fresh water the platies and DG started acting more like themselves, but the cory remained lethargic. This morning the smallest started acting more himself, but the larger one is still laying on the bottom lethargic. Everyone else is now eating and acting almost normal. Is there anything else I could do for her? I thought about getting a quarantine tank for her, but didnt want to further stress her out by moving her. I'm also down to only one platy showing a few ich spots from all of them. So it was working.
