Does Fritz ParaCleanse treat the tank also or just the fish?

I think I may have brought in parasites, either on wet gravel stored outside, or a new cypress knee or a outdoor tub sponge filter I temporarily used in a holding tub I used to transfer fish and plants to new tank.

Three stupid mistakes on my part.  Newbie lesson learned.  

Thanks for any input. 

 

PS  FYI I found this on this Disease Guide Poster on Fritz website.  https://fritzaquatics.com/assets/files/uploads/Disease_Guide_Poster_Sm.pdf

I found this discussion of praziquantel on a reef forum from a couple years back. It sounds like the prazi will kill active worms, but not their eggs. They suggest doing a food soak to treat internal parasites. I attached the whole thing, even though some of it is only applicable to marine aquariums. Hope some of that helps!

Another question

I am treating tank with Paracleans using the Co-Op instructions.  7 days, them water change.  

And from what Im reading above I should I feed a food that combines metronidazole and praziquantel?

Thanks again. I do appreciate y'all help.

You don't have too. Just watch the fish. If you see signs of a specific disease, then treat the single disease per directions on the box.

@Schwack I'm about to use ParaCleanse to treat probable intestinal parasites. 

Do fish swallow the medicated water into their digestive system?

The instructions from ParaCleanse and ACO say that it treats internal parasites, but don't say you need to actively find a way to make them swallow it. Am I missing something?
