    Ok, well I read a BUNCH about the garlic thing. So apparently I should feed it 5-6 weeks for it to be fully effective and HAVE to feed it every single day as the regular feedings. And weirdly enough, canned garlic juice has no effect, rather fresh garlic. Hmm.

    It doesn't really matter if they're parasitic or not. I am going to treat it because his color has been all funky and I am wondering if it is because of them.

    Set him up in a QT container... it is a plastic storage container ;3 it is longer but shallower and is completely bare-bottom.

    How do I tell if they are parasitic or not?

    Hey Lui, the crazy person below me (heheh!) Said you've used medicated food before? I am thinking my male MIGHT have internal parasites and some kind of food seems like the less abrasive way to go.

    Do you have any brands to suggest? Thanks!
