      The green is Saprolegnia, a fungus that is treated with Proform C.

      What are you using the acriflavine for? Another purpose?

      I don't know if the Proform C is available in the UK, but the product is a blend of formalin and malachite green. I believe the portion that is most effective for the fungus is the malachite green, but the two have some synergistic properties enhancing each other.

      Different meds there. Is it this https://www.orchardfisheries.co.uk/kusuri-acriflavine

      this would be closer to the proform c https://www.orchardfisheries.co.uk/t...alachite-green

      If the tail rot is caused by parasites, it would help. Bacterial, I don't think so.

      I would be doing water changes daily, on Proform C, I do 20% between each treatment. Any chance of a picture of the tail?

      I believe the instructions with the fmg is to do a 25% water change before each of the three daily treatments. Since the fish are supposed to be parasite free, you might be able to stop treatments when you see the fungus gone, but I would do all three treatments, just in case or just because.

      No, the 3 treatments would be daily. If it is not gone within a week, we would need to reevaluate treatment.
