  1. I'm trying to figure out if the quarantine trio is safe to use all at once with pea puffers? Looking at Cory's old puffer videos it seem's like they aren't sensitive to medication. The older videos show API general care and erythromycin but they're sold out locally. Tried to look at some of the older blog post about pea puffers, but there was no yes or no, or reviews of anyone updating.
  2. Can the quarantine trio be used in conjunction with salt?
  3. So I bumped into a couple of Jack Dempseys, lovely little mating pair. I had to have them, impulse buy. Got home and realized I'm all out of Quarantine Trio. I head back to big Al's to find out Maracyn, Para Cleanse, and most all meds are no longer allowed to be sold to consumers in Canada. The only way to get them is from a vet prescription, which honestly I can't seem to afford or find a vet locally willing to prescribe meds for fish without being them in and stressing them out. Long story short, I was only given a small selection of available meds from the local pet store, and all the tank mates for the Jack's have now passed away. What would be the recommended alternative to the Quarantine Trio, but available to Canadian consumers without a prescription? Help is much appreciated, I lost many fish from my impulse buy, but let's be honest it will likely happen again one day, but I need a plan in place for medication. Peas and Tanks!!!
  4. Hi everyone, so i saw a lot of people from Europe asking where to get med trio or what to use in Europe etc. So i will write here some medicine list that i have experience with and many other aquarists use it as well. 1.Esha 2000 - is used for Finrot, fungal infections, bacterial infections 2.Esha Exit - is used for ich and velvet (and more rear spot disease's) 3.Esha gdex - is used for gill flukes, skin flukes and tape worm This 3 meds can be used in same time, dosage is simple and they doesn't effect invertebrates. Those 3 meds will affect wide range of disease that are most common in aquarium hobby. There are some more specific diseases that will not be treated with those meds but they are not as common. You can get it in online shops as well on Amazon. Other very good products are from JBL company but the trick is they treat specific types of disease's so you need to be sure that is right med for right disease.
  5. I stand by the quarantine med trio and it has worked beautifully to treat issues for which it was designed. However, I have run into a couple of instances of fish ailments that weren't covered by the trio that didn't really show up during quarantine. (Usually 5 or 6 weeks, for me, give or take a day or two.) From my research (online and books), these don't seem like super everyday common issues and don't generally present symptoms right away or are harder to spot. So far, some of my fish have presented (after quarantine): Camallanus Worms - Treated with Safeguard Goat Drench (Fenbendazole) while waiting for Levamisole to arrive (3 weeks later). Now I am the crazy paranoid fish lady that periodically checks my fish's vents for worms. (Never thought that would be my jam. 🙂 Anchor Worms - Treated with Microbe-Lift Lice and Anchor Worm (Cyromazine) and Cyropro (different tanks, not at the same time). I finally received the Dimilin I ordered (one month later) so I am ready if it pops up again. No flashing for weeks, no lethargy, no nothing. All seemed well until an ulcer on one of my fish showed up. I assumed it had gotten into something and hurt itself. A couple of days later, all of the fish in the tank seemed to have a small ulcer and were flashing. Started general salt treatment (low level), until I could figure out what it actually was. The next day I could finally see the little buggers. Gross. As much fun as it was to treat each of my established tanks after I added in the fish that had "completed" quarantine, I would rather not play those games again. Given the overall world situation, I couldn't go to my LFS to inspect the fish before I received them. At this point, I don't even want to order fish online anymore, not that it would have mattered to see them first as I obviously would not have caught either of the two. I would like to know if anyone can add insight to the following questions so we can all learn something and maybe avoid these types of shenanigans in the future. My questions: 1. Are there any other not so obvious fish issues that can be hard to spot during a quarantine period? (i.e. Not the usual suspects like Ick, Velvet, Flukes, DOA, etc. Lol!) 2. If so, what are the tricks and tips to spot them early (if any)? 3. Are there any good treatments every fish keeper should probably have on hand as they are hard to come by or generally have longer shipping wait times? (i.e. Levamisole, Dimilin, Malachite Green, Potassium Permanganate, etc.)
