Huh. I'm not saying they aren't sick, they might be. Sorry I totally forgot about the other thread.

When you bring the fish back to the store, can you ask for store credit instead of getting another fish right away? Might not be the best idea to keep getting more if they are having problems with their own fish at the moment.

If can't afford to treat them (you can try aquarium salt, but tetra are sensitive to salt), I'd just wait this out. Don't increase temperature because that'll only help the fungus grow.

I plan on getting store credit. I've thought of dropping the temp a couple degrees but not raising it (I know thats bad). I haven't done anything or added anything to the tank yet but I would like to save my current fish, which will end up being medication.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

I'd try a general fungus med.
Don't know if this is true, but our betta disease section sticky says dropping temperature does nothing to fungus, so might not be worth trying.

Understandable, I had only heard it in passing and was going to do research on it before trying it. But hearing that just means I wont mess with it. I have yet to get home today and see the damages. I woke up to another tiger barb down (only 2 left now) and a hatchet fish that was not looking good. I wont be home for another 2 hours.

Feel free to message me any questions, I'll try to help the best I can!

ok so I was given the API Fungus cure. I got it discounted. I got enough to treat 100 gallons so thats plenty to treat my tank twice (figured about 40 gallons after decorations).
