    Hi all,
    please help!!!! AGAIN!!!!
    Is the use of metronidazole effective in the treatment of white spot in a reef tank.
    I was told to strain some live brine shrimp into a container and mix the powdered
    medication into this. Wait a few minutes, then feed the fish.
    Problem is the one that is most severly affected is not feeding
    Any advice will be highly appreciated.
    THanking you in advance.

    If a fish isn't feeding I'd say hypo salinity is your best shot. Give the forums a quick search, you should find quite a few topics on the subject.

    As for medications in a reef tank. Most members use Herbtana.

    Metronidazole must be fed for more than 30 days every day to help with whitespot
