Meds with Loaches-HELP!

I've successfully used Rid Ich with Loaches at 1/2 strength, but never had to use anything else. Now I have a Betta with fungus on his mouth in my community tank that also contains Clown Loaches and Cory Cats. I bought Maroxy and Tetracycline to cure. Has anyone used these meds with Loaches? Should I bother to medicate them at all or should I just remove the Betta and medicate him alone. None of the Loaches or Cats seem affected. I know Cats don't usually get these type of things, but how about Loaches? Would appreciate some advice tonight (2/22) if possible as I don't want to wait any longer to medicate the Betta. He came down with this when another fish died and stayed in tank for God knows how long cause I couldn't see him as my house had only partial electricity because of ice storm and the fish were in the dark for 12 days cause extension cord wouldn't hold but two plugs, heater and pump. Any experience anyone has had with these is appreciated!!!
