I picked up this fish about a week and a half ago. Its been in quarentine and has appeared fine until two days ago. It started shimmying and breathing rapidly. Today it appears very red around the mouth and gills and has become lethargic. The barbs appear to have erroded. I've begun treating with maracyn and maracyn-two on the assumption that this would cover a broad range of bacterial infections. Any suggestions or ideas?
