 I  believe  that  you  will  need  a  combination  of  salt,  Merck  methylene  blue,  and  darkness  to  rid  your  aquarium  of  this  pest.  Your  dosage  is  inadequate.  Methylene  blue  is  required  in  a  concentration  of  about  5  ml  every  5  liters.  If  your  tank  is  100  liters,  you  will  need  100  ml.
 
 Acriflavine,  which  is  found  in  Rid-All  red,  will  also  be  useful,  however,  you  have  gouramis  and  plecos  in  your  tank,  and  usage  of  any  medication  containing  copper  will  be  extremely  bad  for  them.  In  case  the  Rid-All  red  which  you  procure  is  a  combination  of  acriflavine  and  malachite  green,  this  might  be  bad  for  the  above  mentioned  fish.
 
 V.V.  IMP:  -  DO  NOT  USE  ANY  GREEN  COLOURED  MEDICATION  with  GOURAMIS  and  PLECOS..  Most  green  coloured  medication  contains  Copper  in  the  form  of  malachite  green.
 
 Check  out  the  links  below  for  more  information.
 
 FishChannel.com  -  Freshwater  Velvet  Disease
 
 Wikipedia  -  Velvet  (fish  disease)
 
 
 Keep  the  water  level  low  (about  three  fifths  or  maybe  even  half),  so  that  all  water  changes  will  end  up  costing  you  less,  in  terms  of  water  disposed,  and  medicines  replaced.  Water  change  of  upto  80%  will  be  required  daily,  and  you  will  need  to  add  the  salt  and  Merck  Methylene  blue  to  the  replaced  fresh  water.  This  will  have  to  continue  for  10-14  days.

 thanks  a  lot  netherwinterknight  for  valuable  advice  i  have  added  salt  and  wraped  tank  with  dark  cloth  about  adding  methylene  blue  i  am  confuced  it  is  mentioned  on  bottle  2ml  for  100  litre  for  permanent  treatment
   according  to  link  you  have  mentioned  wc  should  be  done  after  treatment  is  completed  however  water  change  is  not  a  problem  for  me  but  maintaining  darkness  during  water  change  won't  be  possible

 Water  change  is  because,  there  is  no  biological  filtration  after  methylene  blue  treatment.  MB  kills  all  beneficial  bacteria.  So,  ammonia  levels  will  rise,  and  fish  will  get  stressed  out,  and  might  even  die.
 
 Darkness  may  be  an  issue,  but,  brief  periods  of  low  light  are  okay.
