Hi there. I am setting up a 55 gallon tank and getting new fish. My plan was to move Fluffy into it, and qt the new fish (10 White Cloud Mountian Minnows) in the old tank. I was going to salt dip the new fish (bucket to bucket method) and then keep them in salt for one week, then Prazi for 4 weeks. Well last night I discovered that Fluffy has some kind of worms - possibly tapeworm . So I wonder if I should just treat everyone together? What do you think? Should I do this in the 29 gallon (holding 23 gallons of H2O), or in the 55? Water changes will be easier in the 29, and If I treat the tank, I'll hopefully not transfer the parasite over to the new tank when everyone is done with treatment. Your expert advice is greatly appreciated. mj
