mountaintoppufferkeeper Posted January 11 Share Posted January 11 (edited) In order to get better experience on the deworming I intentionally grabbed a less than healthy puffer from a seller who is more of a flow through than a QT and deworm online shop. Not only that I got this individual around Christmas during a colder spell with one more who appeared to be in better condition on arrival. This thread will be focused on the one puffer and how it progresses through deworming. The sale price back then was too good ( a gift from a family member ) and I took the jump knowing the risks. This could still end poorly for this puffer but so fsr so good. The goal was to get real world practice in deworming and conditioning as rough of a puffer as possible to prepare for a potential purchase of wild caught species without QT or deworming in the future. The condition of this one was as bad as I was personally comfortable trying with my current ability. Day of arrival Treatment with prazi pro (praziquantel) begins (I lost my scoop for my paracleanse and didnt want to guess). At some point this spotted congo lost the bottom fin to the muscle. Seems like possibly bitten off before arrival here. Day 9 - Progress made with praziquantel. Still a little more work to do before Expel-P (Levamisole Hydrochloride) Day 14 first day of Expel-P (Levamisole Hydrochloride). Id say we definately had some "expel of a P" in this gif. Day 16 2 days post 1st round of Expel-P (Levamisole Hydrochloride). We are one more round of Expel-P (Levamisole Hydrochloride) and then a round or two of fenbendazole to finish up the QT treatment here. Eating well and with that personality now. I expect this puffer will thrive and achieve the condition where the normal source send their fish to me by the end of the process. For comparison, this is the condition I recieved a pair from my normal source: More to follow as we progress Edited January 11 by mountaintoppufferkeeper 4 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
