I got some at my local non-chain fish store. There are several other meds included in it.

One tablet per 20 gallons here.:) But two tabs were enough for me to treat my fish in a 75 gallons for Hexamita disease.:)

I just bought Jungle Brand Parasite Clear Tank Buddies and it lists metronidazole as an active ingredient.
