So leave the carbon filter out then if I stay with the medicine?

That's what I was thinking at this point. Thanks

You can. Or you can put it back in to further protect your fish.

But I thought it would eat the medicine, which is why you told me to take it out before?

Yes. But with it in, the exposure to medicine is lessened. It's a useful strategy for sensitive fish. But I don't see any reason to put it in unless you feel your fish are in danger.

Oh! Okay. I'll see how they are doing tonight and in the morning and for the next day or two. How much does it absorb the medicine do you know?

After I am done treating them and observing them for a few days after they're done, do you think we could go ahead and put them with our Betta?

That's a chemical calculation I am unable to do lol. It would eventually absorb all of it which is why the bottle says remove carbon if possible. As for how much and how quickly I can't say. I've successfully treated fish with it in but in your case I would probably leave it out. If everyone looks healthy and happy then into the big tank they go.

No worries. :P

Thanks again Of course I'll see how they are as time and treatment goes on, but, how much do you think I should worry about the wilted fins? It's not all the time and not all of them, and it doesn't seem like they're clamped... I looked up some pics but it's hard to tell for sure. I think it's just when they rest... ::Sigh::

Well, you're already treating them. Now it would be more appropriate to ask are the fins getting closer to the body as you medicate them. If they are, then that would be your cue to get a stronger medicine. If it stops or stays the same then things are okay.

That's a good idea! My fish used to be able to predict when I would check on them and practiced their best begging faces lol. Eventually the same will happen with your fish.
