Sunny Posted March 23, 2021 Share Posted March 23, 2021 (edited) Hi all! This is my first post, and it’s about parasite problems! My main question is: after one complete treatment of API General Cure, some of my glofish danios started showing white poop (I’d never been able to catch them pooping before, and I’m sure the rest poop I’ve just not seen it) and have continued to do so about 4 days after I completed the treatment. The one I saw tonight looked like a white string with beads in it. Does this mean they still have worms, and I should do another treatment immediately? Or is this them pooping out dead worms, and I can wait the rest of the two week time period to treat again (to catch hatched worms)? The fish are eating well, and the ones that were really hit by the wasting disease seem to be putting some weight on again. Background: 29 gallon tank has been set up for 2 months. 7 white skirt tetras, 8 (now 7, one didn’t recover from the wasting disease and died today) glofish zebra danios. They were added at the same time about 6 weeks ago, and I didn’t quarantine them, but have certainly learned my lesson! There’s also a young bristlenose pleco in there that’s been in for about 3 weeks and seems to be doing great, and a hitchhiker bladder snail that was the lone one for about 2 months and has suddenly produced a second. There’s some live plants in there, have no idea what kind, but they’re from Petco so I’m guessing pretty common, and some hair algae that’s doing well .... I’ve already treated for ich and fin rot, both of which the tetras had. It’s been fun, but I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel! Tested today and ammonia & nitrite are 0, nitrates are 5ppm. I don’t have the gh/kh test kits but my tap water is fairly hard, and temp stays steady at 75. I did a water change at the end of the treatment. Thanks all! Edited March 23, 2021 by Sunny Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
