Trying to clean up some fish that have been struggling past couple months. Treated 2 weeks with methylene blue and emptied tank and cleaned it, pvp/filter/heater etc very well.

is it okay to now run malachite green in the same tank?

i'm not sure malachite green is a good treatment for saltwater fish. i believe humblefish recommends against it. it might even be toxic to them if i recall

what's wrong with the fish?

Was treating them for ich at first. Clownfish had been showing some fuzz on and off for past few months. Cleared them of ich but it has some back on the blue tang (of course...blue tangs🙄) but clown looks clean.

just had been treating for parasites and now wanted to treat for fungus etc. what do you guys recommend for QT? What medications for what? Any medications can I run together in conjunction?

i'd do antibiotics on that

kanaplex, metroplex, and furan 2 is the "trifecta" that's generally recommended for bacterial issues. i recently used it during ttm to fix a bacterial issue that was killing my fish. everyone i put through it lived and is still good to go a month later

Day 1- all three
Day 2- furan-2
Day 3- 25% waterchange THEN all 3
Day 4- furan-2
Day 5- 25% waterchange THEN all 3
Day 6- furan-2
Day 7- 25% waterchange THEN all 3
Day 8- furan-2
Day 9- 25% waterchange THEN all 3
Day 10- furan-2
Day 11- 25% (or more) waterchange

If you need to go 14 days-
Day 11- 25% waterchange THEN all 3
Day 12- furan-2
Day 13- 25% waterchange THEN all 3
Day 14- furan-2
Day 15- 25% (or more) waterchange

that's the schedule if you want
