cinnanoodles Posted January 17 Share Posted January 17 This is a disease-related post as well, but because I am experimenting with medicated food, I put it here. Please let me know if I'm in the wrong place. So I'm planning on adding Maracyn and Maracyn Two to my fish's food, and feeding them that for the next week or so. Treating what seems to be a systemic bacterial infection (I have a hunch that it may be enteric red mouth/yersiniosis, but it's only a theory and hasn't been studied in white cloud minnows. Consider it?). The last time I tried to feed medicated food to these minnows, it was with API GenCure and the foods in the photo below, minus the blood worms. I tried to finely chop and mash garlic, mix the food into a paste, bake it, and then attempt to feed. They would not eat it. This time around, it's a different med, and I purchased Garlic Guard. Have you had experience with feeding medicated food to a fish that usually isn't a picky eater, but won't eat the meds? How did you get the medicine to bind to the food; what was the ratio of medication (especially if using tetracyclines and/or erythromycin); and did Garlic Guard work if you used it? Thank you!
