So I had a a redtail shark and a columbian tetra struggling with a white fungus or something. Redtail shark is completely better...The columbians head has gotten blackish and rough looking and a white spot is re-emerging. I also have a black skirt with a spot on its side. Any thoughts? They are still eating some as well. I had used Melafix and took out my filter media because I was told it would suck up the medicine. Well this caused me to lose 5 fish. Here is my question and Finley you might have the best input. Would salt work for this and could I leave old carbon filters in there just to filter the water? The carbon filters are over a month old now I believe and I was waiting till after treatment to change. I know new carbon will counteract medicine/salt but with older I was assuming that they might not take away the medicines usefulness.

I use salt and garlic for all my fish illnesses and injuries and works for me!I never buy meds from the store! Also raise the temp to around to 86 degrees! usafishbox
