"I've had a striped raphae for several years and all was fine until recently - came by some nice lava rock - (used and cheap) from a pet store closing down. I also got 7 little tetras. Tetras disappeared behind big rock - there for a couple of days then gone. I blamed Raphy. Then killi fish died, looked all rotted, then next day gourami with 'pop eye' and dead black phantom tetras. Got general fungus treatment from pet store- turn tank yellow for treatment - then Raphy all covered in fungus so new treatment of maracyn and more water changes. All levels fine, maybe nitrates a bit high. Gourami looked better on second day then died - other gourami fine, also fine is bushy nose pleco, and bumblebee gobi all fine. Now 5 days later and one day after treatment finished. Raphy still looks coated in spots white film and bushy nose pleco is cleaning him - they both seem to enjoy this -should I repeat fungal treatment? Try a new one? Just water changes and gravel cleans? Help please "
