Internal Parasite, medicated but not working

So I did 2 of the maracyn two treatments back to back and my girl still has this stringy white poo. I still have not seen her eat once! I don't understand how she is even alive.

Usually the best way to administer IP medicines is to put it in their food. Have you tried soaking some tempting food like bloodworms in Parasite Guard or Metronidazole?

I've even tried giving her blood worms in general, still wont eat. I have NEVER seen her eat and I suck up all the food from the bottom of her bowl daily.

Jungle makes an anti parasite food that you can try. I don't know if he'll eat it but you can soak it in Garlic Guard to make it a little more tasty to the fish.
