    Please can you sponsors tell me if any of you stock a medication called Prazipro for treatment, or if you can get it and how soon.

    Thanks and regards

    Ask your vet for praziquantel. They use it to deworm dogs. What do you want it for?

    We used to use it to deworm discus and kill external parasites when I was keeping them either by soaking food in it or via a bath over a period of days. Metronidazole was also used

    It's used to treat fluke infestation. Flukes are apparently very prevalent amongst bought fish, and the cause of many unexplained deaths. Apparently it's effective and reefsafe, with the exception of lionfish(go figure), xenia, worms and some star polyps. Don't quote me on this as I'm still researching. Don't know why I'm researching, as I can't seem to find the stuff anywhere.

    Just get the stuff from a vet. I would not treat a whole aquarium but rather in a QT tank at 1-5mg per litre of water.

    Why don't you use the tank buddies parasite clear, or do you not want to quarentine the fish again. Also if the fish has the spasms when it eats, it can't be flukes. I think you should be looking more in the direction of internal parasites.

    If I can catch the fish, I'll treat it in quarantine.

    It displays some of these symptoms of flukes (found in this thread onRC Mysterious fish deaths are more common now (Flukes) - Reef Central Online Community ):

    1) Fish twitching the head side to side once in a while like if wanted to shake something off his head.

    2) Discolored blotches of skin (Most people think this is velvet or some bacterial infection and misdiagnose it with antibiotics)

    3) Frayed fins or tail.

    4) Sudden loss of appetite. Fish was fine yesterday but today it’s not eating at all.

    5) Cloudy eye(s)

    6) Rapid breathing

    Your original post, I was under the impression that it was only when it eats,
