help asap! :(

a few days ago both fish tanks were infected with ich. My mother dropped off some nox ich and said LPS said I should use it. I used hald dosage reading online that that's the best thing to do I came home found 1 fry dead and 2 more with air bubbles knocked off. They're not swimming much but I have no where else t put them. And my females in tank 2 are all duddled in one corner breathing fast and swimming in space.
Any help please!

I'm not sure if I am correct so I wouldn't trust my advice but my bettas were showing the same symptoms and all of them are separated with totally different water.
Some of them only stayed at the bottom of the tank and breathed heavily which sounds like what yours are doing and some of them had some sort of velvet or ich looking stuff...
In the end I realized they were getting extremely skinny and would refuse their food and when one of them died there were worms coming out of it...
I brought the treatment for internal parasites and fluke worms the second I found this out and used it on one of my sick fish but he still died...
I'm sorry but I didn't want to leave you with no answer seeing as that is what all but one person did to me on this forum.
I'd say act as soon as possible and good luck! Iv lost 6 fish this week and I don't want anyone else to feel like I do

Yeah all my females were near the plants inn one corner all together after I stopped watching them they came out. The female tank had their first treatment of ich yesterday. Half dosage considering the blue dye it has.

I think it may also be the parasite bc they produced a whiteish pink poo but they also did that before they had their baies last time.
Mixed signals for sure.
And all my fish are guppies.

Good luck! It sucks to have fish die especially when you see them suffering and no matter hat you do they still die
I was completely heartbroken when my betta of 5 years died even though I spent about $150 to save him
I hope no more of your fish die!!

Well my females are acting the same staying in one corner being very still. One seems to have squared off but won't deliver. She had like a clear discharge and I'm worried she's holding in her babies..sometimes they're alone but most of the time they're stuck to each other. I'm not kidding

Aww try looking really carefully and make sure ich is actually what's wrong with them.
I have no clue when it comes to guppies but I'm only relating to what iv experienced with my bettas
