Default Looking for advice on Petrochromis illness...... Deaths

I recently spent $3000 on Petrochromis Moshi group and Petrochromis trewavasae Moliro Congo for my 240 gallon tank with total of 26 fish they arrived last Wednesday acclimated everything an everyone looked fine. Thursday they are mainly all over the tank swimming doing there thing not much aggression so i feed small amount of flakes everyone eats but one Trew he stays back not looking good almost sunk in sick looking but not interested at all. I also noticed one long stringy white poop not sure who it came from so i started treating Metro same way Mastiff off here does it 1/4 teaspoon per 20 gallon every 8 hours with 50% water change daily thursday. Friday everyone eats but the same fish he isn't looking good. Sat evening after work that fish is dead on bottom of the tank I took pics no sighns of bloat IMO but I have another Trew not eating now I net him up put him in a 29 gallon tank he is dead today when i got up. Small feeding again this is all with medicated flakes with metro I have another not eating I put him in the 29 gallon tank and looks like he has less then 24hrs also.... I have 10 Moshi 2m 8F all monsters beautiful fish and had 16 Trewavasae down to 13 once this fish dies I would like everyones advice its obviously illness thats with the Trew's and so far they have not spread it to the Moshi...... I can't loose these fish like this and Metro seems to not be touching whatever it is they have??? I will next day whatever meds I need tomorrow morning first thing just tell me what you think it sounds like?

Sorry to hear. I'd try Kana plex and aquarium salt.


Hopefully others chime in. I've only experienced this with one of my WC Moops and I still lost her. I tried kana plex and it perked up. I beleive it was too far along before treatment started.

Chris I emailed you, just got in. Your sure your bacteria survived? Because you did pout them in a brand new tank that was only running for 24hrs right? In the email I sent I'm just asking are you checking all parameters to make sure bacteria and seeded stuff is keeping up with the larger brand new tank.

Well call me when you can to go over everything your doing and have done. Major concerns first are brand new tank. Next pics you sent of southwest cracking multiple boxes and looking like they threw them around and thirdly that you switched their diet I know but to what?

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Jungle-Fun...-Pets/10313047 Don't laugh, this stuff just works. Brought a Frontosa back from near death with this stuff and saved many a Tropheus with this.

That stuff actually works i use the tetra version same stuff called fungus guard and parasite guard. the parasite guard has 4 meds in it including metro and prazi. i also like using benediazole this works fast as long as they are eating as you have to put it in there food.
