I did a 25% water change in my tank and treated the new water with stress coat for the first time. Came back a few hours later and the top of the tank/filter was frothy and bubbly like soap. I've also been treating with tetracycline for a few days but this didn't happen until adding the stress coat. I just sort of scooped most of the froth out... Is this just something that happens with stress coat? Or maybe brought on by the mixture with tetracycline? Is it harmful? :|

That much? o.o I've heard that they do this but my entire intake for my filter was covered in soapy looking froth before I scooped it out.

-wow I was looking at pictures of more...that's insane

It's highly unlikely it's a bubble nest right there where water is pouring in... If my water surface has so much as a tiny ripple, his bubble nest is always popping and all he gets is a little string along the edge of the tank.
I have no idea what's causing the bubble/foam going on though.

Ah, I didn't see the water. Since Stress Coat has artificial slime in it, it's possible that's causing the foaming. I've never seen that though. Did you overdose it?

Possible...the measurements are by 10gal. (dose is 5ml per 10g) I usually use betta safe which tells you how many drops per gal but wanted to try stress coat to help with healing. I did a teeny pour. (less than 1ml). But I didn't dump a ton in there. I just checked and there's still a lot of froth so I scooped some out but he seems ok...
