I've got a weather loach which we've had for about 6 months (he was tiny when I first got him and now he's about 16cm..)
Came home today and he is lying on his back in the tank.. I noticed a white spot on his face a while ago, that disappeared, then noticed more white spots on another fish - have realised was a case of whitespot braking out. Treated the tank with protozin on Saturday, but negleted to half the dose which I now see, it does say to do if loaches are present. Is there anything i can do to save the weather loach? He is lying on his back in a bucket of new water, but doesn't look better. He seems to be paralysed from the neck down, He can only move his head a little and cant move the rest of his body. Please help my poor weather loach!
