I have done a water change before, only about 20L out of 180L and it had had the same effect on my fish, killed all my barbs, shrimps and angels. I always buy water from the super market, seems to prevent these issues.

I think the PWC did more harm than good. It probably added stress, which could lead to another seizure. Like I said, it may be in your best interest to pick up e dechlorinizer WITH extra stress coat then do a PWC, "aloe Vera"? This will calm the fish a bit IMO

Well, at least the color returned. Just keep at it, it's the most you can do.

It'll probably be okay. My fish have survived quite a few unintentional temp fluctuations. Better to learn for next time!

There's even a graph on the back with how to apply to stressful fish.
when I have sick or even new fish, I use something called Fish Protector, by Kordon. It contains the aloe vera, B12 and something to enhance the slime coat. I've had good luck with it. Supposedly it also helps meds to adhere to the fish, such as if you are treating for ich.

API have a product called "Stress Coat"

Stress Coatģ


Water Conditioners


STRESS COAT, with the healing power of Aloe Vera, is scientifically proven to reduce fish stress and heal damaged tissue. It forms a synthetic slime coating and replaces the natural secretion of slime that is interrupted by handling, shipping, fish fighting, or other forms of stress. Helps reduce susceptibility to disease and infection. Helps heal torn fins and skin wounds. Reduces electrolyte loss. Also works instantly to remove chlorine, chloramines and ammonia from tap water. Neutralizes heavy metals. Use when starting a new aquarium, adding or changing water and adding fish.
  • Scientifically proven to reduce fish stress by 40%
  • Scientifically proven to heal wounds and promote regeneration of damaged fish tissue
Stolen straight from their website
Haven't used it myself but a few friends of mine swear by it.

That is a pretty good product. The only bad thing is since it says about removing ammo, etc lots of people end up using it as a dechlor. It might be ok for that, but Prime is better. But I would use the stress coat for something like new fish or stressed fish or mild fin rot or something. I used to use it with weekly water changes, but then I was told that the aloe could possibly affect the gills or something? I'm not sure, I don't remember. But do you think that is true? I"m sure its not a problem to use it as needed, but I don't know about using it all the time.

I use it whenever I put in a new fish, or if a fish looks stressed out for some reason lol. It's a really good product, and I always have it on hand.

Do you add it to the water outside of the tank? Or do you just dump it straight in?
