Hello,

Using PraziPro in my 20 high to treat for wasting.  OK, it may not be the med some may say to use but it is what I have.  The instructions are vague. Do you treat once and it works for 5-7 days or do you use the recommended dosage every day for 5-7 days. The web doesn't help.

Maybe I missed something. I went back to some previous threads to find out why or decided to use PraziPro? Do you suspect tapeworms or nematodes, or gill flukes? Depending on what you suspect would determine whether to administer the Prazi to food or water. Praza's solubility in water is not that great.

My pre-treatment of fish acquired from an unknown origin would be Levamisole. Mainly because newly acquired fish from an unknown origin are more susceptible to parasites under the stress placed on them by the distribution chain from breeder/wholesaler to sop , to your tank.

Hi russ,

Originally I found a bent, emaciated/shrunken belly bloodfin tetra.  I thought it was old but it was suggested it was wasting disease.  Several white clouds in the tank are not bent, but thin and lethargic.  I confused FENbenzdole, with the proper FlUbenzadole, and used it in the QT first to no good affect.  So, I looked up other alternatives and decided since this was locally available I would give it a try in my 20 high display. The directions are vague.
