    Some people have had success with it, I on the other hand haven't at all.

    It's not a cure, it's an additive to aid in the fish immune system and or appetite. Real cures are things like copper, gyro marine etc

    I've used it before. It worked and 2 months down the line still no white spot. BUT.. It killed about five of my snails the first time I dosed it. I would first try a reduced dose, then add more if all seems okay.

    I think you shouldn't stop after the visible signs are gone. The parasite spends part of its life cycle in the substrate (??????I think up to 2 weeks????) So follow the instructions of dosing. You want to make sure the white spot is gone for good...

    I just want the best for you and your fish, go read up here on WS CURES, you will learn a lot I did :) I tried everything and after losing my pride and joy (powder blue) to WS the only thing that saved the rest was Copper.

    Not saying copper is the only and best method but it worked. Read @RiaanP bucket method thread as well. You can find my lengthy post on my QT setups (have two). @Achilles is brilliant with advise and @magman has helped along with @Nemos Janitor with my copper treatment.

    It will come back the lack of spots is the WS falling off and falling to the substrate to come back worse. Good luck and let us know of we can help any further.
