I had posted earlier this week, and have just finished a full 5 day cycle of Maracyn and Maracyn 2 treatment for my clown loaches (one has visible illness, the others are fine - suspect flexibacter).
Now tank is cloudy (due to antibiotics) and nitrates are through the roof. I've continued 20% water changes daily (it's a 65 gal tank). Any recommendations on how to lower nitrates and clear up the water OTHER than just re-cycling the tank. A QT was not an option, otherwise I would have done so. Thanks.
p.s. Thanks to Barbara for her help re: treatment. The guys look really good now, and the sicko is behaving normally. I've stocked up on Maracyn and M-2 just in case I have to do another round. Fortunately, didn't have to raise temp. I live in MA and we're having 87+ degree temps so the tank stays a little warmer than usual in the
