"I have a dojo loach which is about seven years old. She jumped out of the tank one night and dried out almost on the floor before I found her. I put her back in the tank, she recovered after a few days, losing fin ends and barble ends, but she grew them back. I introduced another loach a few months back, some time later, my large loach, now almost ten inches long, began having shed like spots on her sides and swim bladder issues. I followed the instructions of the aquarium shop people, treating with BiFuran+ with half tank water changes every other day for a week. This worked, my loach was back on the floor of the tank, not floating sideways at the top anymore. When I stop treatment, though, she gets shed spots on her and if stressed floats sideways again. Her face is now whitish, but not fuzzy, and she doesn't seem to be eating. I can't put live plants back in for her to hide in/under, until I rid the tank of medicine (the medicine killed my plants almost overnight) with more water changes, but I'm scared to do that because it seems to be a huge stressor. I don't want to lose this amazing fish, she swims (or did, when healthy) through my fingers and takes food from me. What should I do?"
