    Can so each day i can feed a frozen cube to the fish over 7 days?

    Is it possible for the fish to OD on it?

    Hi Maj

    You can't overdose on prazi in my experience. I am struggling with a chronic Monogenean ceptlapod problem (Benedinia) I use it disolved into the tank's water. I will not recommend the disolved solution if you have any shrimps in your display tank. Overall try not to use it in a DT.

    I have elevated the dosage from 2.5mg/l now to 10mg/l and things are good!
    Anything from 10 to 20mg/l should be done as 12 hour baths.
    Good Idea is to deworm your fish before you place them into your aquarium as well.

    It is a very gentle medication. If you use it as a bath, I will recommend that you mix it with a bit of vodka (just enough to disolve the whole lot.) as the powder will damage the gills of the fish and kill them. Prazi is not water soluble.


    Hope that helps !
