Can you supply your latest water parameters (ammonia, nitrite and nitrate). It would also help to have the tank size and stock list.

And if you could explain "sucked in"?

Thanks for info. The most likely issue would be camallanus worms, TB, or another parasite. I would recommend isolation and treating with your choice of anti parasitic medication.
