    Default Prazipro in food dose

    0 Not allowed!
    I think I cross contaminated my fish with the ones in my QT tank. I treated them ALL with Prazipro for some kind of intestinal parasites (stringy white feces).

    But I read that you can also use it orally by soaking food with it. The bottle doesn't mention this and I could use a dosage dilution, please. Or should I just soak in full strength?

    Thank you

    Just dose the whole tank. It's much easier. Besides praziquental is readily absorbed through the skin of the fish, which means it is just as effective as being fed. If you really want to dose the food, then use the full strength. The fish have to immediately eat the food as it will be lost to the water if it stays uneaten too long (more than a few seconds). 1ml of praziquental is enough to dose 4 gallons, you'll probably use at least that much if not more to dose the food.

    Thank you. I had already dosed their entire tanks. I guess I was thinking for next time, if there's a next time.
