I live in Canada and donít have access to anti-fungal treatments for fish. Right now Iíve dosed my tank with Cupramine, but I still have a feeling Iím going to loose my school of barbs to this. Any advice as to how I can eradicate fungus from my tank?
Thanks

Could be poor water conditions. Increase your water changes for 50% every week and see how that help.

Meds poor in Australia as well. Now I either hospital tank or put down straight off. You can try any anti-bacterial treatments available.

Just gone through a dozen tiger barbs here. My success rate at healing is very low really.

Sometimes an anti-bacterial to Ďclean it upí followed by double course of antibiotics. Here that might be malachite green followed by triple-sulpha. If it is just fungal the anti-bacterial will usually deal with it quickly. Some people report success with salt.

And as above, good water conditions.

I find a stable tank better than trying to lift tank temperature to kill it off but opinions do vary locally on that.

Unfortunately they donít sell anti fungal or anti bacterial meds in Canada. But Iíll probably give salt a try. Might just euthanize the barbs and start from scratch, their already starting to die off
