    When you Google Acriflavine , API FUNGUS CURE pops up as they share this as a main ingredient.
    It seems to be some form of topical antiseptic.
    While I don't think it will harm the fish if one cycle is done, I don't like to medicate without having a better grip on the problem.

    Lynx... Give us an update when you can

    This is the first I've seen such a statement, good to know.
    And I try to err on the side of caution when unsure.
    Anywho... I use bulk salt that doesn't have it anyway... But it's good to know in a pinch.

    Hi everyone, I'm very sorry I went silent for a while, out of a sudden I got really sick myself.
    I'm so thankful for everyone who posted in this thread, thank you all so much for caring. <3

    The link I posted was not to the medication itself, just the site of the manufacturer. I've been trying to do some research and atm I'm 90% sure these tablets are nothing but Rivanol. Will never use them again as advised though.

    The 3 remaining fish are looking good and eating a lot. Which makes me super happy. I also bought some new fish yesterday. They're in the QT tank atm and I will do my best to QT them properly this time.

    I hope I can ask you guys for help in the future if I need it. ^.^"

    Love and gratitude to you all. I will make sure to donate some money to this site when I get my next paycheck.

    If anyone is interested, I found out what killed my fish. I've been feeding my fish live Enchytraeidae from my own hatchery. Today I decided to check them under my microscope and I found nematodes...
    I was being so damn stupid.
