    Sorry, should've specified- you don't need to soak them- put a few days worth of food (pellets, preferably) in the crushed garlic and put the mix in the microwave for 30 seconds. That should cover it.

    Dehydrated garlic will work until then, yes.

    Bleaching would definitely do a great deal. But as far as the treatment for tapeworms (or any other gastro-intestinal parasites, which these seem to be)... be prepared to do a bit of work. Not to scare you, but it is quite time consuming.

    Once you've seperated all of your girls, I'd do 100% daily water changes with a teaspoon of aquarium salt per gallon for ten days. As for food, crush up some garlic (quite a bit, maybe four cloves or so), put a day or two's worth of food for all of your girls, and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Feed normally. They may take a few days to get used to the pellets, but they will eat them eventually.

    I'm sorry you're having trouble with all this... good luck and keep me updated! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.

    Hey :) I'd be happy to help.

    I've never come across this before. It could be the beginning of tapeworms, if they've started recently- sometimes the tapeworms themselves take a while to show up. That's my diagnosis at least, lol

    I'd seperate them into seperate 1 gal hospital tanks or treat the tank as a whole if you'd like- how big is the tank they're in?

    That's amazing! They really are amazing creatures. For me, I really love jumping but I just love doing anything. Actually last summer me and my lil racer won a 10 mile race! But I love doing anything! How long have you ridden for?
