Okay, so I've browsed the forums & so far haven't seen anything on my certain situation. I have a small guppy feeder fish tank (I think it's 10-15gal) w/a Aqua Clear 30gal top tank filter. I got the new fish over 2wks ago from a small local aquatic pet store & I didn't see any over crowding of fish & some rare fish I've never seen in person. But they did sale their guppy as feeders & most seemed happy without notice of any fungus/bacteria/sluggish behavior. Within the past week I had noticed what I thought to be fin rot on 2 & some jagged looking bottom fins on a few. I immediately tested the water 4 EVERYTHING & did EVERY SINGLE test. Ammonia levels were high so i did a 50% water change adding all water conditioners that I knew I needed. I started MELAFIX, MARACYN, MARACYN-TWO, AMQUEL, & MEDICATED FISH FOOD. The AMQUEL was only used once since it's OK to use wkly. Everything else was used in combination BY DIRECTIONS of a 7day period as it stated it was safe. Now that is been 7days, my biggest (also pregnant) fish still has the black areas on her tail fin. What else can I do? Is she still sick? Also, a few of them hang out at the top of the water even tho the filter is more than double the size of the tank & I also have a large air pump in it. Please help me. I do not want to hurt my turtle but i also want to be able to keep fish by reproduction instead of inserting new (infected) fish to the tank. I also haven't done the 25% water change at the end of the 7days of MELAFIX.
