Hi, all. Finally got my fancy goldies today. I've treated in my large tank for parasites, both internal and external, using Jungle tank buddies parasite clear tablets as well as the medicated anti-parasite food, so I have both on hand. One of the new fish is flashing. My problem is, since I've only ever treated fish in the past for a bunch of symptoms at the same time, never really knowing if it was internal or external, I never learned what flashing meant. In my other tank that I treated, one fish Iwas darting, and the other had a visible white lump that turned out to be an internal parasite. Anyway, I used both on that tank. Which do I use for this? The food apparently treats internal parasites only, so I don't want to use if it I don't need to. I may use it just as a precaution, anyway, since they're pet store fish and there's a good chance they'd have both, but the regimen is pretty tedious (3 consec. days a week for 4 weeks), so if I can clear it up another way that'd be nice. The other thing is, these fish are TINY. About an inch each. I'm worried the tablets would harm them. One of my comets got two burns from the tablets, and I didn't overdose. Any suggestions for treating the little guy? Thanks!
