Do you think I should treat the tank if I've seen white poop off and on for a couple days and the fish flashing here and there?TexasDomer said:
My bottle of PraziPro says: “A single treatment lasting 5-7 days is normally sufficient. Retreat as necessary, but no more than once every 3-5 days.”ASHLEY R COOK said:
I would follow the directions on the bottle, that just seems like a buttload of medicating for no reason because PraziPro stays in the take for up to 7 days? Doing water changes to remove it just to add it back in seems counterintuitive to me. I overused PraziPro with one of my fish tanks, and when I needed to use it again - it was no longer effective because the fish tend to build up a tolerance for things like that.ASHLEY R COOK said:That is what I thought but I've seen this exact treatment schedule pop up on other forum posts as searching as well. Huh
He didn't have the spots before I don't think. And his orange scales look patchy and they didn't before for sureTexasDomer said:Some mollies are naturally spotted, but there is something that's called black spot disease, caused by encysted flukes. It doesn't usually cause issues though (the cysts will stay on the fish since there's no predator to eat the fish and have the flukes develop further), other than the visibility of the spots.
All except the gourami but it's very occasional. Like I'll see one flash two times and they'll all be fine. The next day I'll see another flash a few times. Today o haven't seen any.TexasDomer said:Just from him, or from other fish too?
