Treating internal parasites
hey all, just a stupid question but whe treating a fish for internal parasites should i treat the whole tank or just the sick one?
any ideas thanx :D
I Quarintine my fish and medicate them in the quarintine tank.
Thats just my opinion.
thats what im doin myself, but i wasnt sure wether to treat all just incase??
Internal Parasite treatment. Treat the tank if thats all your options, but as with any thing nasty like that quarenteen if poss. And be aware it will not do your bugs much good in the filter and so forth.
internal should be quarantined as internal is not as likely to spread as external.
i would soak the food in the meds so it gets in system quicker. you might need to do the whole tank cus if one eat the pooh of the sick one he can get it too.
i would treat the whole tank, just to b on the safe side. it is possible for the other fish to get sick too.
You should treat the whole tank if you want to eradicate the prob... What med are you intending to use? Have a look at this one it is excellent
Medicated foods are available at your lfs. Quarantining is advisable. However, all fish in the tank may be infected. Treating the tank should be treated in this case.
just been looking at recommended treatment and its internal bacteria not parasites oops
