soo frustrated

Man, i feel like giving up fish lately. First, I find that one of my guys MAY have internal parasites (bloating and clear poo). After treating him with jungle parasite clear and medicated food his poo starts looking normal and i think it may have been the Hikari Bio Gold I had been feeding him that caused him to bloat. i never saw any actual worms and he has always tended to be on the bloated side. yesterday i fed him a pea and this morning he looked really bloated again. then i saw greenish loose poo at the bottom, but am not sure if it is form the pea or not. he has been acting 100% fine the whole time.

then yesterday i find that one of my CTs has fuzz at the end of one of his rays, and i dont know what to do about it. not sure why he has it - he has been battling fin rot, and i'm not sure where that even came from. the other two guys in the tank have no issues. the only thing i can think of is he was a little more sensitive to the cycling process due to being a CT. I don't know what to do with him and he wasn't eating this morning.

the other day one of my guys jumped the divider and totally got beat up by the other guy. The other guy just has a few rips, but bubbles is missing huge chunks of his fins. but he is fine otherwise.

and now i'm not sure if i should treat all of my fish for potential parasite exposure or now.

sorry to vent. i just feel really frustrated right now because it's something new each day.

I'm sorry you're going through this. I know how frustrating it is. You might as well treat everyone with the medication, I did. Kelly told me that it wouldn't harm my other fish if they didn't have parasites. I'd also try daphnia, not a pea. You can also fast him for a couple days and than give him daphnia.

Petsmart has the frozen kind. I don't know about Petco and other places.
