I currently have 4 otos in a quarantine tank. I treated them Monday with the Aquarium Co-Op recommended trio of meds. But, I'm very certain that they have an internal parasite. Some of them, when they poop, there is nothing to it. It just seems completely clear like it's almost a casing of nothing.
Any suggestions on how to treat this? Right now I can't get them to eat wafers or anything so I don't think I'll be able to medicate food for them.

Could it be this cocktail caused this issue?
I noticed them pooping like that in the bag once I brought them home :/
