Well apparently their is a problem. The tang isn't doing so good. She's been hiding in the rocks for 2 days. I can barely see her and she's breathing really fast. I did a 40 gallon WC yesterday. Hope that helps. She hasn't ate in 2 days either.

Beyond the rapid breathing, is anything else going on? Any signs of anything not looking normal? Are your waters parameters any better after the water change?

Yes the PH came down to 10 and the salinity is up to 1.025 instead of 1.023.

Yes one powerhead is rippling the surface and the other goes from one corner and bounces off the front glass about the middle of the tank.

I did have a cyan bloom that happened all of a sudden too. Very strange to me but I'm sure it all stems from something. It's just weird that all this started within 12 hours of me adding the 2 new powerheads (vs just one).

For flukes, it's freshwater dips (try every other day three times). if that clears it up, do a forth and stop. if it's still around, Formalin dips should do the trick. Since they are worms, they can live a while without hosts, so I've seen 10 weeks fallow DT used as a minimum...some people say 16 weeks just to be sure. If you don't do the fallow tank, you can assume they are still in there, so your fish will come down with them again after being reintroduced to the DT.

Most parasites, including ick, attach to the gills first because they lack a slime coating. That causes the fish to breath fast before parasites are obvious on the body.
