  1. jmetzger72's post in 2 white spots on goldfish tail was marked as the answer   
    Let's do 2 more rounds of Prazi only 4 days apart with no removal of Prazi and no carbon in the filter during this treatment:
    Day 1: Prazi 1
    Day 5: Water Change then Prazi 2
    Day 9: Water Change
    If you have a heater, a temp between 75-78 degrees speeds up the Fluke lifecycle which ensures that the hatching larvae are killed by the second round of Prazi.  Just raise the temperature slowly so as not to shock the fish.

    That sounds about right.  Our calculation for 1 gram is 40 pellets.  The pellet size is imprecise, so there is room for error.  I usually use 10 pellets for a 25 gram fish.
  3. jmetzger72's post in pOdge has a 'funny' eye, is it normal? was marked as the answer   
    I think the eye is fine,  Just watch that it doesn't begin to protrude more and keep the water pristine.

    Here is an article where Narny made several recommendations for microscopes:

    Have you treated for flukes?  If not, it would be good to do a few rounds of Prazipro as flukes can cause these slime spots and splits on fins.

    I would do one more round of Prazi. Feed him once a day. Don't worry about his shyness, but do watch for frequent bottom sitting. If he is constantly bottom sitting, there may be a secondary infection which will require antibiotics. You may also want to do 2 weeks of salt at 0.3% after the 4th round of Prazi to be sure you've eliminated any other parasites other than Flukes. You can start the salt at 0.3% with the 4th round of Prazi if you double dose the Prazi.

    Yes, absolutely. Are they in a cycled tank or an uncycled QT?
  8. jmetzger72's post in Got my 55 set up! was marked as the answer   
    3 is a good number for a 55. 1 or 2 small or medium fish is good for a 29. But eventually, 2 will probably outgrow it. You will also need to do more water changes if you have two in the 29.
  9. jmetzger72's post in 55G a future possibility... was marked as the answer   
    Ideally, I would just do 3 Goldfish in a 55 gallon. 4 is possible with two 50% weekly water changes. And, you need to have about 600 GPH filtration on that tank.
