for adding the new water to the aquarium can i use a plastic bucket just to condition it, the toxins won't leech into the water from the bucket will it?

i'm actually not quite sure of the siz i did a convertion on the comp n it said 37gal but we put in way more than 8 buckets of water in from a 5 gallon bucket!

Plastic is inert.

Crank the heat up in your tank to 82 degrees Fahrenheit during the teatment.

ok ive just got the pm back from one of the members 1 tablespoon per 5 gallons and disolve it in a cup of water first before adding it to your aquarium for your catfish, then turning up the heat a few degrees (if its on 78 ish) should help. good luck :D

oh and thanks Lupin for the salt information :D

With such high ammonia and nitrites I would recommend getting your tank parameters in order before treating. Fish require pristine conditions to recover from something like that, and certain medications can even be very harmful when added to an uncycled tank. You should probably be doing 75% water changes every day before and during treatment, and then once the treatment is over you can begin to cycle your tank.
