Hi, So I was just wanting to ensure I have more on hand in case something happens. All my crew is good but I have to order everything so I want to be more prepared. I have Paraguard, Prazi Pro, API Genral Cure, Triple Sulfa, Metroplex, Kanaplex, Focus, Furan 2 and Neoplex. Maybe too much and over kill but I would rather be over prepared than under. We barely have regular vet available in my town, never mind one that can help me with my goldfish or tropical fish. Not sure if either of the following do that much, but I have primafix and melafix too. Someone recommended having maracyn and maracyn 2 on hand for gram positive and gram negative treatments. I was doing some reading about them and according to the info I was reading, they are not very effective with high PH, seemingly more effective in a discus tank. My PH runs 7.8-8.2. Just curious what opinions are? Thanks
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!
Hi, I am just wondering if anyone in Canada has found dimilin online that we can buy? I don't need it now but it was one of the medications that was suggested as a good one to have on hand. Living in a little town really decreases my options. I'm not wanting anything bad to happen to my goldfish but I would just feel better to have some basic meds available if necessary. I was able to find the other four suggestions online pretty easily and have ordered them but not dimilin. I found meds that treat anchor worms but not dimilin specifically. I wonder if it's one of those controlled things in Canada? I know for my planted aquarium I was trying to find potassium nitrate and I had to send a copy of my drivers licence to the supplier before he could send it to me. However, in the US it's super easy to order.
