  1. Hi again! SO, since Amidala's passing I've been turning my attention to my little T and making sure all is OK before getting my new guys in . He has been behaving a little strangely, darting around one minute and very peaceful the next it made me suspect parasites of some sort , so I decided to treat with prazi/fluke solve this week as a safety measure, this has calmed him down a little but his behaviour is still a little unpredictable so I was planning to re-dose. But his poop is really weird! I fed him: Bits of egg, kale and lettuce before the prazi went in... -Did I mess up feeding him just before treating? His poop goes- wait for it- a normal piece- same colour, normal thickness( that doesn't just fall) followed by a clear casing followed by zigzag which is in the same colour as his last few feeds, white/green. -We are now on day 4 of a 1 week treatment of fluke solve. As I know you guys say it loses potency on day 3 was planning on redosing today after a water change and continuing, what do you think? P.s Water params are the same as in last post on Amidala (normal)- only difference being nitrates are now lower at 20PPM.
  2. Hi KokoNuts, I was looking for 10g of Praziquantel powder and couldn't find it on the Internet. I ended up emailing a factory that produces it in China - min. order 10g. I see 50g (treats 5000 gallons) for sale on Amazon, but no less. I may call my cat vet and try to make a deal.
  3. We recommend the use of prazi to treat the various forms of flukes (e.g., gill, skin, liver) and worms (e.g., tape, flat) that invariably can be found on/in goldfish, especially recently purchased goldfish from nonbreeders. As part of a quarantine procedure, the use of prazi (several doses) is highly recommended. Prazi comes in two forms: powdered or liquid. I have only used the powdered form and have received very good results. I periodically retreat my main tank with one dose when introducing a new fish that has gone through quarantine. Here are some online stores that offer the powdered prazi: 25 grams $35USD http://www.waterford...-Meds-p-73.html 25 grams $32.95USD http://www.webbsonli...gory/Aqua-Prazi 10 grams $26USD http://www.aquaart.c...tions.html#APZI (prazi pond plus) http://www.koi-pond-...ipond-plus.html 25 grams $43USD https://www.amazon.com/Prazi-Treatment-Fluke-Parasite-grams/dp/B00RPTHOFI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1470934369&sr=8-1&keywords=aqua+prazi I don't know if these online stores ship outside of the US. For those of you who are outside of the US, please include links to online stores that ship to/within your country. Thanks!
  4. Hi there! My oldest school of fry are now 3-months old and I haven't treated them with praziquantel as a precaution measure because they were so tiny and I was afraid the med would rather hurt them than do them any better. Now I think this was very silly, to put it mildly, of me. I've done 100% wc daily untill a couple of weeks ago when I started doing 70% wc also each day. The other day I changed the sponge filter with a bigger one on the weekend. I poored boiling water on it to desinfect it and than washed it with cool water (just water no soap or Anything) and placed it in the tank aka food container. Surprise, surprise and a nasty one to that! yesterday afternoon I noticed blood-red spots on three of my fry. I'll post some pics later today. They showed no other symptoms of sikness, by the way. I moved them to another container and added Wormer plus as indicated in the instructions on the packaging. I want to treat the other fry as well and follow the procedure described here on Koko's. Could someone tell me please if the procedure for Prazipro works for Wormer plus too? Is it safe to use Wormer plus with salt? Should I add it to the "tank" with the sick fry I already started treating?
  5. Does anyone know if I need to remove the nitrate remover pad (made by Deep Blue) when using PraziPro? Thanks
  6. I received 4 fish via mail. 2 telescope and 2 orandas. Orandas are approximately 1 in and the telescopes are approximately 1/2 inch in size. i am doing a fish in cycling of the tank. Not an ideal situation as I have read! They have been in the tank for 4 days now. I am using Prime and added the API Quick Start also. My water parameters are PH 8.0, Ammonia today 1.0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 0. I This is the highest my ammonia has gotten. I did a 75% water change after adding the Prime. Now the Ammonia is down to .25% others are the same. This afternoon one of my Orandas died. It had been stressed since its arrival. But my major question is are they too young to treat with Prazi? I noticed that they spitting food and i was worried about parasites. I am feeding Repashy Soilent Green. Thanks for your input.
  7. I've recently dosed my fish with the powder form of Praziquantel (Aqua-Prazi in this case), and as I expected, I couldn't get it to dissolve completely. I'd read that it would dissolve eventually, though, so I poured it in after shaking it with water. (I don't keep alcohol in the house, so the vodka trick wasn't an option for me, nor do I have a blender.) However, I think that my fish, in their zeal, may have eaten a granule or two. Should I be very concerned? They're not in the throws of despair but seem kind of out of it and gulp-y (though they have been gulp-y before, which is why I'm trying the powder form of prazi instead of PraziPro this time). Mostly just curious about the safety of a fish eating a bit of prazi. Thanks!
  8. Hi, I have a question. I am QTing my two fish pOdge and Louie. Louie had ich on him when I got him, and he was in the bag with pOdge from the pet shop so I am QTing them together. I have added the info from the d&d thread I just made for pOdges eye. It seems her eye is ok, but due to my tank being so small, it has been recommended I do 100% daily water changes, which I am more than happy to do. I cannot get a bigger QT tank at the moment and am keeping a very close eye on water parameters and their health. I have just started day 5 treatment for ich: The QT tank was a 12L on day one, and upgraded to a 19L on day two with 100% WC. We have just finished day 4. Did a 50% water change yesterday vacuuming the bottom of the tank, and 100% today removing and replacing filter floss. I increased the tank temp to from 22-26deg celcius over the first 36hr. Commenced salt treatment starting at 0.1% 5hrs after they were in the tank, increasing to 0.2% 12hrs later, and 0.3% 24hrs later again. No Ich spots have been seen for 2 days. I therefore have at least 7 more days of 0.3% salt to get through, and I also need to prazi. I have Blue Planet Fluke/Tapeworm Tablets 100 (Praziquantel) as I could not get the prazi recommended. Each tablet contains 100mg of Praziquantel. My questions are; I have noticed that the recommendations for prazi treatment indicate WC (>50%) only on certain days. I need to do 100% WC daily, so how will this affect my treatment schedule? Do I keep the 0.3% salt up for the whole 30 days? or should it be less for the tablets I have? http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/105076-schedules-for-the-treatment-of-flukes-etc-using-praziquantel/ I couldn't get my head around this so I thought I would ask. Thanks for your help. Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0ppm (0.1ppm prior to 100% water change today) * Nitrite Level(Tank)0ppm * Nitrate level(Tank)0ppm * Ammonia Level(Tap)0ppm * Nitrite Level(Tap) 0ppm * Nitrate level(Tap) 0ppm * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.4 kh55 gh250 approx. * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) 8.4 kh55 gh250 approx. Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops? API Freshwater master test kit * Water temperature? 26deg Celcius * Tank size (how many gals.) and how long has it been running? 19L, two days (upgraded from a 12L and keeping a strict eye on the parameters esp ammonia) * What is the name and "size of the filter"(s)? Aqua One Air Filter Cartridge for up to 26L. I cleaned the filter floss when doing 50% water change yesterday, and ditched it today for new filter floss with 100% water change today in case it was harbouring ich's. Carbon filter part has been removed. * How often do you change the water and how much? Did a 50% water change yesterday vacuuming the bottom of the tank, and 100% today due to ich treatment and their being in such a small tank (I don't have a bigger one for QT and cant get one at the moment ) * How many days ago was the last water change and how much did you change? Did a 50% water change yesterday vacuuming the bottom of the tank, and 100% today due to ich treatment and their being in such a small tank (I don't have a bigger one for QT and cant get one at the moment ) * How many fish in the tank and their size? 2 both about 5-6cm * What kind of water additives or conditioners? Prime and salt 0.3% (for current ich treatment) * What do you feed your fish and how often? Nutrifin Max Flakes small pinch morning and night, the food is all gone before it hits the bottom of the tank, and it is gone in less than a min. They were fed shelled peas yesterday and gobbled them up really quickly... prob had about 1.5 peas each (did the 50% water change/tank vac after this) * Any new fish added to the tank? No, they have both been in QT the same length of time * Any medications added to the tank? salt 0.3% (for current ich treatment) * List entire medication/treatment history for fish and tank. Please include salt, Prazi, PP, etc and the approximate time and duration of treatment. Louie had ich spots on him when I got him so increased the tank temp to from 22-26deg celcius over 36hr and commenced salt treatment starting at 0.1% 5hrs after they were in the tank, increasing to 0.2% 12hrs later, and 0.3% 24hrs later again. * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? pOdges right eye is not in the same position as her left eye, it looks a little protruded at the top. Ich that was seen on Louie is gone and no other ich has been seen for 2 days. * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? No unusual behaviour, just wanted to catch the eye thing quickly if it was a problem. Both have responded fine to the salt/temp treatment, and both are eating fine and interacting with me really well. pOdge likes to come over and 'have a chat' when you go near the tank and move your mouth .
  9. Hi, I was treating my goldfish under the Koko teams guidance, and I realised that I have not treated any of my tropical fish for anything. Should I be treating them for ich and with prazi? I bought the tropical the same day I bought the goldfish, and the goldfish had ich. The tank is cycled, but it was an in fish cycle with comets bought from the same shop as above and they were untreated. I have in my 100L tropical tank: 16??? (I cant count them) neon tetras 3 bumble bee gobies 2 bn plecos 6 male sailfin molies 2 male guppies (one very young) 4 female guppies (3 pregnant, maybe 4) Does salt affect any of these fish in concentrations up to 0.3%? Does prazi affect any of these fish?
  10. I'm due to treat my 135 gallon with Prazi. But I was wondering if instead of doing the water change on day 5, day 12, etc., can I just add carbon to the filter instead, to remove the Prazi? I live in southern CA and we are in an extreme drought situation and I don't want to use any more water than I absolutely have to.
  11. Sooooo, it's time for routine maintenance prazi of my goldfish in their 55 gal However, I now have one of Acro's albino bn plecos too. I'd like to give everyone some prazi, but am unsure if the pleco can tolerate it (BTW, I asked Acro and he would like to know the answer too because people frequently ask him). My question: do any of you Kokonuts have any experience with using prazi with bn plecos? Or do you remove them from your GF tank when treating with prazi? Thanks for reading this
