Aquarium medicine

Anyone know a good aquarium treatment that'll just kill everything in the aquarium (not the fish obviously) I know I'll need to get filter boost afterwards.

Been using Waterlife different treatments prior but it's not helped. I want a fresh start.

Thanks in adv

Hello ff..

The best aquarium treatment is large, weekly water changes. If you can work up to the point you remove and replace most of the tank water weekly, you'll have no tank problems.

Yes, it's really annoying I've used bacterial treatments and viral ones yet none have worked. I thought it had been sorted until I bought two more fancy tailed goldfish and they died within 3 weeks. They would shy away, not eat then waste away, then die.

It's not a water problem. I don't have that many fish in there for such a large tank. The filter is virtually spotless when I clean it. Good flow rate on it. I just wanted to start over. I know it'll Jill my filter bacteria but right now I'm just sick of whatever this is

There's some products on the market that won't kill off your BB. Seachem makes quite a few. Paragaurd, Kanaplex. API Furan 2. Prazipro. Those cover a wide spectrum. If you are going to dose a med that will kill your BB you might as well break the whole tank down and bleach it. Start over. Same with your filters.

I think using these meds I listed once you get new fish might be the way to go. Could be bad stock from where ever you are getting them.

If you add more fish dose thier food with Seachem Metroplex. You need to mix the metroplex with a binder like Seachem Focus. It wouldn't hurt to add Seachem garlic gaurd to entice them to eat.
