I was thinking of using general cure in my aquarium because my platies have occasionally been rubbing themselves against the substrate and plants/hardscape. However, I want to make sure general cure is safe to use in an aquarium with fry and shrimp/snails without affecting any of them negatively. Would this be possible? If not, is there any other way I can medicate the fish for an unknown potential parasite without harming the other inhabitants?

Prazipro is safe for invertebrates and highly effective against parasites.

That's lovely! Do you know if it would have any adverse effects on fry?

I've used a handful of meds with ghost shrimp in the tank with no issues. One of the shrimp had eggs that survived too and went on to hatch. I've used general cure, paraguard, and furan 2 with no problems. furan-2 did a number on my jungle val though. other plants were fine.

Thank you so much for this response, greatly appreciated! I might get the general cure then, because the other suggestion of prazipro was not at my LFS
