Addition Of Carbon Filter After Prazi Treatment


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm on day 21 of the prazi treatment and in two weeks I'm supposed to add carbon filter to end the treatment and remove the prazi. I currently don't have any carbon filters left at home and I was wondering whether it is ok not to put the carbon filter on day 35, since prazi gets deactivated after 3 days anyway. I wanted to ask in advance, so that I have time to go buy a filter if needed. Thanks!

P.S. There has been a big improvement in my 3 goldfish after starting the treatment (no bottom sitting anymore), but they still gulp at the surface once in a while and there is still some yawning. Is it normal for prazi to take this long to get rid off the flukes?

It's fine. Water changes are another option to remove the prazi. I'd say just do a water change if you don't have carbon.

Be patient. Is the tank well aerated?
