Hemorrhagic Septicemia fixed with Mardel Maracyn-Two but

I have recently used
Mardel Maracyn-Two to treat Hemorrhagic Septicemia on my one bala. It said the water would fog on the last days of treatment but would clear with new carbon. its been 2 weeks now and it is not clearing. any ideas on why ? I have tried many water changes and a light gravel sweep. the water was tested and there is in between 0.0 and .5 ammonia. But that seems to bounce in between there throughout the week.

Does the test kit also test for Nitites and Nitrates? It nay just need more time for the "good bacteria" to catch up.

yea. i had good bacteria b4 i used the medication and the nitrates and nitrite was close to 0 when i tested them. the aquarium is about 6 months old .. and i thought the Mardel-two wiped out the good bacteria? is that possible? it said it wouldnt do that..
