ok so the exact name of the med I am using is...."quick cure" and it's active ingredients are formalin and malachite green. This came recommended from my lfs. Is this ok? Should I stop?

I've stopped treatment until I hear what you guys think about the stuff I purchased. If it's not the right meds, I dont want to continue administering them. I appreciate all of your guys's help! The people on this forum ROCK!!!

Oh, if I decide to treat with Praziquantel, can I put the cory's back in the main tank? Or should I complete the treatment first. Should I do a water change before treating with Praziquantel to try and get the old meds out of the tank? Sorry so many questions, I'm just worried.

I'm sorry you lost your fish, Britny. Are you going to do a big water change in the tank? I think I would, just to be safe. Can you also run some carbon in your filter to remove all residual medication??

Yep did a 50% water change this morning after I removed the dead platy. I also added the carbon back in the tank. How long should I wait before adding the frogs and cory's back to the tank?

you could dose the tank with worm med like what the rest said and remove the thing after it's fallen off the fish for a good id-ing
