    Hi all

    As you may have read I have had a hectic time with oodinium. I am down to my last 2. I am busy doing a treatment with paracure. Only problem is that with NSW untreated and treated NSW I get exactly the same reading on my test kit(Red Sea Copper) an emeraldy Blue - a colour not even on the scale. I even went and put in additional paracure in the test tube and the color is constant. I first used oodinopur and a sera test kit and this also didn't read. Now that I am using paracure, I am getting some colouration in line with the test kit it is reading now 0.3. I killed no 3 with probably od'ing the fish and I didn't even know as I am blind with these crap test kits!!!!
    Ca I actually believe the test results ?????:(

    What the hell????
    :eek::eek:
    Any advise?

    Regards
    Willie

    my best advice to you is leave your tank fishless for a few months ....
