    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?

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

    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
