Have you tried salt? A teaspoon per gallon of sea salt will usually knock out
fungus and many bacteria. A dip could be made stronger than one teaspoon per
gallon but I like to treat the tank instead of just the fish. Have you tried
furan? it's my drug of choice for treating fish. BTW why would you keep
crappie fish?
