Mark303 Posted March 27 Share Posted March 27 I imported a fancy goldfish and did a two week quarantine with the med trio and everything looked good. However after moving the fish to my display tank I noticed the new fish, as well as an existing fish, flashing a couple times (several days apart.) Reading online I suspected flukes so I treated the whole tank with Prazipro once a week during my 50% water changes for two weeks. I did not see any other flashing during this time, waited two weeks and then repeated the two week treatment again. After that I noticed another different fish flash, so repeated this process again with the 2nd treatment lasting 3 weeks. I had not seen any signs of flashing once again for the majority of this time. I monitor water conditions with an API master kit weekly, and last week found the Nitrites rising to ~.5ppm. in response to this I did water changes every 1-2 days adding Fritzzyme 7 after changes. My cycle seems to have been restored the last couple of days. Today I saw another fish that had not previously exhibited flashing, flash pretty severely. Should I continue to once again treat with Prazipro? Could it be due to something else? I don't see any physical signs of flukes, Ich or any real behavioral changes besides the fairly rare (but severe) flashing. The tank is pretty bare with sand only. Only other products used in the tank is purigen in the HOB filter (which was removed during treatment) and Prime for water changes and to neutralize the spikes when I was trying to restore the cycle. Thanks for the help! 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
