Water testing

Salting to 0.3%

SupaVerm 1ml/100gal

Diflubenzuron

Medicated food

The Concepts

+ Salt controls the majority of ciliated protozoan parasites.

+ Medicated food, in lieu of injections, controls the development of bacterial infections which might be brought on by transportation stress.

+ SupaVerm is completely safe to use with salt and control Flukes, which are extremely common, very completely. SUPAVERM kills goldfish!

+ Diflubenzuron eliminates all crustacean parasites including Argulus and Lernea.

+ Water testing is important because in quarantine, water quality sometimes sags. This compounds the fishes' stress and is worse than no quarantine at all! Also, fish will NOT get over their various ailments in poor water quality! (Kit that has all the important tests)

Problems with this Shotgun regimens

+ Regimen number one can't be used on Goldfish, because of the incorporation of SupaVerm as a fluke remedy. Perhaps substituting Prazi would resolve this issue. They are more expensive.

Costia can survive this regimen.

If fish won't eat, then the medicated food will not achieve its objective.
