    @RiversGirl, Paraguard treats everything: Ich, fungus, bacterial infection, AIDS, the common cold, post traumatic stress disorder, disillusionment, athlete's foot, midlife crisis. Paraguard covers it all.

    Well, OK, just the first three. But still, it's pretty good stuff. And I did a little reading, and it's supposed to be snail safe.

    Water quality is actually quite good right now: 0 Ammonia, 0 nitrite, 5 nitrate. I haven't checked for a while; I expected it to be a lot worse considering I keep losing fish. But we'll take the good news!

    Paraguard is safe for about anything. I've used it on fry and in shrimp tanks. No snails every seemed bothered (mystery, rabbit, assassin, nerite, bladder or pond) and when I managed to get ich in a tank with syno cats and an elephant nose they seemed no worse for wear during treatment either and the EN are notoriously sensitive to meds. Love the stuff and use it first or only in many situations ever since I found it to be the least stressful and actually serves its purpose med on the market... It's a bit mild and really does nothing for internal parasites so there's definitely issues it can't help with but will probably be my go to for ich for all the foreseeable future and is my first preventative med in QT routines.

    Sorry for the losses :( Pardon me if I've forgotten or missed it, but are the lemons that came down with Ich new fish? Or did you add anything new? You got the twig cats a week or so ago?

    Sounds like I need to start adding it into my morning coffee. I'll research dosing next.

    Seriously though,
    It is a nice thing to learn that ParaGuard is one of the treatment options for ICH. I was aware that it's gentle stuff and have also used it with shrimp in the tank.

    Gentle treatments that are effective = a great thing, in my book.


    Thanks for the discussion about it, y'all! I so appreciate that this place is one in which I can ask questions and not be attacked for asking.


    Thomas, I'll join you in celebration regarding your good water quality - the best medicine there is - and I'll keep up the good wishes that you've seen the last of your losses.

    I know at least a couple members that use Paraguard for prophylactic treatment in QT, so I could be wrong, but I don't think it causes immunity or resistance.

    Here's some info I keep on hand about Paraguard and what it is (it's gentleness)
    http://www.americanaquariumproducts.....html#formalin

    ParaGuard employs a proprietary, synergistic blend of aldehydes, malachite green and fish protective polymers.

    A newer and in my opinion (& experience) formulation that contains a formalin product is SeaChem ParaGuard which contains a proprietary, synergistic blend of aldehydes which is less toxic than other formalin/formaldehyde formulas. The form of Formalin used in ParaGuard is the safest/most effective formalin I have used to date

    This isn't ich; it sort of looks like it, but it's on their fins, too. I think it's some sort of bacterial or fungal infection. The angels have it too, now, and I lost a card and a neon this morning. :(

    The lemons are fairly new. The disease must have come in with them or with the twigs.
