Prazi: slime coat after salt dip?


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

Thank you for reading and if you would, could you please share how to tell when a salt dip has been adequately successful at removing the slime coat?

After reading and thinking over some Forum posts, tried 1.5% sodium chloride dip for 10 minutes with constant observation. 0.9% did Bupkes a couple weeks ago as far as I could tell.

The goal? Success with Prazi therapy for persistent, frequent surface gulping and also as routine QT protocol.

Two Broadtail? Veiltail? idk Telescopes

Thanks again

We actually use 3% here, for a maximum for 5 minutes (or until the fish loses and cannot regain balance, whichever comes first). This is about in line with what the University of Florida Extension suggests.

You can actually see the slime being stripped off.

Before you do a dip, make sure to check the gills to see that they are healthy.

Thank you

With the plan to work up to 3% if needed, well -- it sounds as if it's needed!

Thanks also for the tip about the gills, I didn't know / hadn't thought of that.
