did you put PP in main tank ??

do you have hospital tank ??

take 100 gm. per 100 lt. for salt water treatment

Do the 100% wc and add salt again. Go for 3 days and check if not good continue the treatment for another 2 days.

Please don't do the mixed type of treatment Salt, PP and other types of treatments this could harm your fish and they will be stressed

do not feed the fishes when in treatment and try to keep the tank as dark as possible
so they are not spooked out

all the best.
