Ive had so many fish waste away because of parasites (mostly puffer fish). Ive stopped buying puffers because of thier high mortality. But if that stuff works... I could slip some into a piece of shrimp. Do you know if it works?

It will work with flagellates that cause hexamita since it contains Magnesium sulfate - epsom salt - and it will deal with parasites that are affected by metrizonadole. I don't think it will deal with calamanus worms.

I have no doubt it will work. But it will not deal with all internal parasites. It's great to use when you are continually buying fishes or have not treated with Metro or Epsom salt for the current stock.

Right now, it is not something that I would use on a regular basis.

You don't want to overuse the metro as a preventative. It is bad for the fish.

You really would only use it if fish are sick and hopefully still eating... :unsure:

soak epsom pellets are fine every few months or howver long. The fish just "pee" out the magnesium sulfate.
