hey everyone...

I'm in real need of some expert advice on my fish situation...well here goes...
Recently, i've had a problem with my clowns itching themselves against everything... they would do it constantly so it got my worried.. I went to Aquaria-Fish Forum and the people there diagnosed my fish with external parasites. So i went out and bought Quickcure and used it with their instructions... halfing the dosage so my clowns could handle it... Today, i'm on my 6th treatment and it doesn't seem to be helping. All my clowns and other fish are continuing to eat normally but tend to act weird. My one loach, seems like he's constantly breathing heavy and itching himself against the gravel. My other loaches seem to constantly swim upright and stay like this for the whole day and breath heavy as well
