Well, I got the med and everyone ate some tonight. I had to break/crush it into various sizes so that they could all eat it, but in the end everyone had a full stomach of anti-parasitic food...yum. The treatment lasts an entire month which is a pain, but if it works I'm not complaining.

All right, I have a question for those who have used this med before. How long does it take for symptoms to disappear? I'm almost at the end of the first treatment and I am still seeing white, stringy poops. I just want to know because if it's not working I don't want to waste an entire month trying something useless. But I do realize that the med needs a chance to work, so I'm just wondering how long it is before you usually start seeing an improvement. Thanks.

I have used the anti- parasite medicated food to help discus that were full of worms. The medications are at moderate levels so as not to harm the fish by overdosing. It was after the third week of treatment before I saw solid dark feces. the weeks prior I beleve they were passing the dead parasites so I do not believe it uncommon to observe white stringy poop after only a week. I also fed the fish Freeze dried Flukers daphnia found in reptile section of petco. I'ts basically crushed insects but helps to clear the intestinal tract. My fish became wise to the food after a time and I had to crush it and mix with blood worms and also minced garlic. But nearly all say that if you can get the fish to eat the medications that they are far more effective which is another reason I chose the food over medicating the tank. It may be necessary to treat the fish once again after the first treatment is over (4 weeks) but I might wait for a week or two before doing so. Hopefully your fish will show improvement and the medicated food will have worked.

I just wanted to update because I feel that this discussion may be valuable to anyone in the same position.

The medicated food does seem to be working and I am on the 3rd treatment right now. So, yay, and I would not hesitate to use this product again or recommend it to others :)
