    Just ordered 13 candycane tetras and 12 rummynose, should be coming in tomorrow. I'm going to treat with prazi for a week, then keep em in for the rest of the month to observe for any problems. I've never qt'd with meds before, so my question is, can I feed them while they're in qt for internal parasites, or should I not feed for the whole week?

    You should at least feed them once a Day so they don’t die!

    You can feed them. You don't have to do every day, maybe every other day. You just want to be able to see if there is any white poo vs. brown poo.

    Prazi can also suppress appetite so try not to over feed which could cause ammonia spikes as well.

    Just received the 13 candycane tetras, the rummynose were out of stock so I'll get em within the week. Didn't expect to get fry, but oh well I'll grow them out

    I won't be using meds since they're pretty much fry. Ordered some brine shrimp eggs, feeding crushed flakes for now. Thanks for the input though guys
