It's not Ick. Possibly a bacterial infection. Do you have any Kanamycin?

I have metronidazole and tetracycline... Will that be enough... I've already added formalin... And water change and methylene blue.. Should i add these 2 antibiotics also

One med at a time. See if the formalin and MB makes a difference, if not try the tetracycline. Metronidazole works better on anaerobic bacteria, i.e. intestinal diseases.
