I put some magic clear in my tank then went to make a coffee and once I

Got back I noticed all my fish were gasping for air and swimming

Abnormal.

Then I freaked out and started putting them in another tank as you do

I ended up losing 30 of 3 of the specices all the same.

And some have even come back to live believe it or not.

If you have any ideas please let me no.

Kind regards Bob

I brought a bottle of magic clear 10 years ago to try on my display and back then the same thing happened. I ended up loosing ALL my fish so my advice would be do a big water change.

6 mths after loosing all my display fish i thought i would try again at 50% the recommended dose, Bang lost a lot again

Magic clear alright, clears everything out including the fish.

I don't know exactly what is in the preparation but if it is an aluminum based flocculant and your pH was very low, then there could of been free Al ions which are very toxic and target fish gills...
