Re: Levamisole

I will do that!

It’s also probably a good practice since I’m feeding more and there may be more waste than is optimal.

Happy Holidays to you also!

Re: Levamisole

That’s a crypt balansae in the photo. Also have amazon swords, crypt wendti, crypt willisi, and java moss in that tank. I do a 30% water change once a week and my nitrates stay under 20. I spent way too much time today watching these guys. They are active and out and about. I originally was waiting ...

Re: Levamisole

Thanks again! The levamisole that I purchased had the dosage. I gave the second half dose yesterday and will do water changes starting tomorrow. They are about 1 3/4 “ +/-. All are very active and eating well. I feed them twice a day and do a meal of frozen brine shrimp/bloodworms every other day. I...

So last night I got home from work (midnight as I work second shift) and turned on my room lights. They illuminate tje tank a bit and I was watching the Darios. I thought a couple of ...

Re: Levamisole

Thank you Nancy. I did purchase both levamisole and flubendazole. The flubendazole is coming from the UK so I haven’t gotten it yet. I may hold off on the Darios for now. They all look good and are eating; even giving the barbs a run for the money for the food. I did opt to put them in my establishe...

Re: Levamisole

Thanks Charles. That does make sense. Maybe I should hold off then. 3 of the 4 sids that I lost did get skinny and stop eating but as you explained it may have not been more stress than worms. The replacements I purchased were from the same group and are of great weight and activity. The same for th...

Levamisole

2 days ago I purchased 6 more Botia Darios to join my lone surviving one after my disastrous water issues. They are all doing well. However, I do want to worm all with the levamisole (including my sids as I have a couple that look thinner to me and Prazipro hasn’t seemed to help). The directions say...

I did do the second dose yesterday. And yes, the last two days, the skinny guys have become much more active.

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

It’s 2 sids that are skinny.
And thanks. I should have dosed the quarantine with Prazipro today for a second round of treatment but didn’t get to it.
So maybe I’ll just order the Kusuri and do that instead.
My Tiger barbs are little piggies lol!

Re: WOOOOHOOOOO Seachem Matrix

Ughh. Do you have nitrates in your tap water? My well water was so variable which is why we purchased the under the sink nitrate filter. It was a losing battle to try to keep nitrates low when I was putting water with 10, 20 or even 30 ppm back into the tank. I think we are going to install a small ...

Re: Talk to me of sidthimunki

And here’s my remaining Dario with a photo bomb by one of the sids. Excuse the pea gravel. I had originally planned this tank as a quarantine for more barbs.
