I am not even sure if it's parasites , I have been researching online for days ,,, no symptoms of anything I have read other then not eating and 1 hangs out mostly under the filter ...I haven't seen worms etc. 2 aren't eating at all and only 1 of them hang out at filter the other one still swims around .I am not even sure what to treat them with so I figured parasites first then see if that helps then tetracycline ??
Seems like a good plan!
I actually doses today with Paraguard , the medicated flakes and prazipro want be here until Monday and I felt like I needed to do something now , I went to the LFS and she suggested Paraguard .
I would continue for the full dose of paraguard and only start the others if this doesn't work. Make sure to do large water changes between meds too.
Paraguard isn't going to touch internal parasites. Metro is your best bet for that.
How long should I use the Paraguard then switch to Prazipro? I have used Paraguard two days and 1 fish ate two bites this morning and the other still nothing ...I don't know if they have internal or external parasites , they just not eating and one stays at filter or bottom a lot ...I am trying to treat for a wide range .
