Thread: PraziPro

    I use prazipro as a preventative treatment for every new lot of fish.
    once flukes somhow flew below the radar and I noticed them hanging off my cories' whiskers in the main tank, which I promptly treated with prazipro. within an hour the hideous wiggly abominations disappeared and never returned. the treatment in the main tank also demonstrated that prazi at full dose was 100% safe to beneficial bacteria, amano shrimp, nerites, ramshorns, mts, sensitive fish like cories and otos as well as all sorts of plants including madagascar lace.

    I started (in mid-March) dosing my 75 gal. I am going to dose all 3 tanks every 6 months. I also dose new fish in the QT the week before they go in the main tank. When I stock the dual 29s, I will dose each tank for 1 week. I keep carbon inserts on hand to remove the med after the week is up.
    75 gal - Smudge Spot Cories, Silvertip & Pristella Tetras, Scissortail & Red Tail Rasboras, Pearl Gourami, Black Kuhli Loaches, Whiptail Cats, Wild Caught BNP
    Dual 29 gals - Diamond Tetras. Harlequin Rasboras, Bloodfin Tetras
    10 Gal - Mr. Betta's Fishy Paradise

Now, clean water and fish purchased from the same store all the time have eliminated my need for dumping meds into the tank.

    I haven't had a sick fish in quite a while and the last two that died were both while giving birth.

    I have used prazipro twice successfully to treat worms. Good idea to treat when adding new fish. I also agree about the usage of a quarantine stressing the sick fish and doing more harm than good in a lot of cases. Its a judgement call you have to make.

    Thanks for the replies, everyone. I guess I need to go ahead and purchase a bottle, just to have on hand in case of emergency

    Thanks cm, I'm about to order a bottle right now. So you do treat with it as a preventive measure?
