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

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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.
