    hermmmmm, it does say will not hurt plants, but it doesnt say anything about snails. i did the first dose this morning, and he started pooping white stuff only a few hours after that. this time it wasnt as... healthy?like it wasnt as wholesome as it looked originally, assuming the parasite is dead? hes still pooping.. been pooping the whole day.. 0_o

    lolol aww.. well ive got me my meds. im wondering if i should treat the other two too, just in case, since they are all living in the same tank, and treat the the whole tank instead.. would the API general cure damage any other livestock, such as plants or snails?

    he moves to fast to get a good pic basically what im seeing from the fins are that they have whitish threadish substance at the ends of them. does this happen when they shed slime coat? it seems like hes shedding slime coat, cuz i see jellyish particles in the water and sometimes sloughing off of him too..? its just wierd.
    also, how long is treatment for with API?

    hmm.... okay. but the wierd thing is that his fins have started to disenegrate at the edges.. most visible on his pectorals and top fin. any ideas as to why? the edges are a bit white, and almost seem.... fuzzy? i cant really tell if its fuzzy or not, since the affected area is small, but should i be worried?

    Hi, my PK is having issues with internal parasites it seems and someone referred me to you :)
    soo.. people have suggested curing with api general cure, jungle's parasite fizzy meds, epsom salt, anti-parasitical/garlic juiced pellets, etc. which do you think is the best way to go? the white strands he pooped out looked wormy, not thready at all. and the best part: IT DIDNT POOP OUT. it freakishly snuck its way back into his gut he seems to have some deteriorating of his fins, mostly his pectorals, as they are becoming ragged and white? oh and he has cloudy eye spots again, but on both eyes this time. currently i have AQ salt and jungle fungus clear on hand. hes still active and eating. theres a thread about it in the diseases section if you need any additional info. ive posted pics in there.
