Suspected Parasites, Prazi Question


Recommended Posts

Okay well long story short, my little cousin bought me some fish and dumped them into my tank before I got home from work, I'm assuming along with the bag water. There were 4, 2 have died and they were sickly (also feeders....so they more than likely have nasties)

the other feeder was removed to another tank, but I left the fancy in the main tank because the comet?common? I don't know, it was chasing everyone.

I've started treating with salt, so far at only 0.1% because I have to order the prazipro

first question: can I up the salt to .3%?

My fish have parasites now....weird poops (like a clear casing with some poop in it....not the white stringy poop), they are flicking their fins, and rubbing on the gravel/plants, and are generally not themselves (super friendly, active, etc)

Second question: My tank is 95 Gallons, will the bigger bottle of prazipro be enough?

and how many rounds should I do? It says it works after one round, but can be repeated?

I'm really hoping they have fast shipping...I can't believe this :wall:madrant
