Malachite green.. The main ingredient in that med is really toxic to bacteria and inverts so don't treat it in your tank. It'll kill off the bacteria and the tank will cycle. It is supposed to be a super strong med for parasites. I personally don't favor medicating my fish unless I am sure of the diagnosis. If you feel confident that your fish has Brooklynella, I would treat it. The disease is usually fatal and requires prompt treatment. The fish will be slimy, fuzzy, breathing hard, and sometimes faded. There may be fuzz on his gills as well. The slime seems to be the later telltale factor. If you think it is ich or that maybe the fish isn't acclimating well.. I would hold off until you see definite symptoms. Treating a stressed fish with meds that strong could kill the fish, and if they aren't necessary then that would be very bad. If the fish has Brooklynella, things are already bad and the sooner you treat, the better the fishes chances.

Idk what to do, he doesnt have any spots or anything out the ordinary on him. No scratching only what i said.. rapid breathing. So im gonna hold off on medicating him. If he still is acting like this tommorow should i do a full 2 min. FW bath? Idk what to do.. I dont want my other fish catching whatever he has.. (if he has anything). I did see my royal gramma scratch his side (flash?) twice on the sand before i changed the water after i noticed white slimy stuff on my perc. Its all gone now, no flashing from the gramma and nothing on the perc..

-plus hes hiding good now to where i cant see his sides, only his tail wagging back n fourth swimming.

-edit: And i guess i will try feeding tank again later tonight, to see if hes eating. Frozen brine mixed with garlic flakes

I would wait as well. If he isn't slimy right now and he seems stable, I would let him just try to work it out. Keep him calm if possible. I don't know if you use vita-Chem (or some other vitamin supplement) or garlic in your food but that is an option to try to boost his immune system. It does concern me that the store mentioned Brooklynella as a "common" possibility. The freshwater dip is a non-toxic way to
Try to rid him of any parasitic infection that he has. But they can be hard on an already stressed fish. Good luck man. Let us know how he does.

Vinegar? Then rinse, rinse, rinse and let air dry. The vinegar is a great non toxic cleaner and it wont hurt the fish. I use it to clean the outside glass instead of glass cleaner.
