Try a different treatment. IMO: coppersafe doesn't really cure the whole disease. Do you know what disease your yoyo has? It sounds like ich or gill flukes. But knowing what disease the yoyo has, then you will be able to use the right treatment.

Aquari-sol is safe for scaleless fish. I have two clown loaches and use Aquari-sol every week with them and it doesn't harm them at all.

Default Side Note

And on a side note- this is something that's puzzling to me that maybe someone understands and could explain... For the first weeks i had the yoyos before doing the coppersafe treatment they were very lethargic spending 90% of their time hiding or sleeping on the bottom near a plant, once i added the copersafe it was weird they became very active for that month but now that the treatment is over they've gone back to being lethargic... Can anyone explain this???

I would guess that the copper safe helped, just not enough.

To prevent diseases with my clown loaches. When it was in petstores, I would get it and use it as a preventative for diseases with my fish. It does prevent diseases. I just wish that it was still being made as it is a very good product.
