I'd go ahead and try it out. My deal breaker would be noise and current. Too noisy or too much current, not for me (but I have a 20 gallon long).

I know the rasboras had a fungal infection 8 were infected.

The platy in the other tank I'm not 100% sure or was about 2yrs old. It looked Like a swim bladder issue

Assuming you aquired the rasboras with the infection, were you quarantining them before introducing into your tank or did they contract the infection elsewhere?

I have no idea where they got the infection. They have been in the tank for over 6 months, I have not added any stock in the last 2-3 months

Did you add any plants? Sometimes they can carry them. I got Columnaris 2x from not dipping them before adding to my tanks and now that I've started that I haven't had it since.
It could have also been something in the tap water, that's even more rare but occasionally possible.

What are you dipping your plants in?

Nothing new, actually added some bamboo shrimp a few moths ago I only trimmed the plants I have. The only thing was one of my GBRs died 2-3weeks ago no sign of infection, injury or anything. My water perimeters have been perfect

I went to Lowes and got extra tubing for my water changer, connectors for the tubing, various pvc pieces for making hiding spots for the fish, and silicone and a caulk gun for resealing my leaky 20 long. Plus a nice little silicone bead smoother so I don't have to get it all on my fingers. In a little while I think I will start tearing out the old silicone!
