Hello Ron and all,
I usually wash my newly hatched brine shrimp into a glass of Clout solution and let them take up the medication for 5 to 10 minutes and then feed to the treatment tank along with treating the water. I have had moderate success with this method. I have also allowed white worms to set in the concentrated medication solution before feeding. Not the highest success rate either. the BBS has given me the best results -effected the highest cure rate. I have never seen much cure in just treating the tank water. I think it is asking too much to expect the sick fish to eat enough water to do any work on the protozoa.
Likely the use of Metronidazol will improve the results. I have been looking for a source of this compound for several years. Thanks Ziga! and again it would be most effective to treat the food and expect the fish to eat baby brine shrimp instead of swallowing water.

>Hello Nonn, Holy cow!! The fish are still kickin'? I guess there is hope for them, weak fish would have gone belly up being dropped into that sollution I would imagine. I've probably killed as many fish as I've saved with it(usually the too far gone fish can't handle it). I've never made a bucket of sollution to use for several days, I've only used it in big tanks where that would not be feasable. I'm not sure if it is still effective on day 2, maybe someone else on the list would know. What you have to do though, is change half of the water in the pickle jar with water change water(or since you said you only filled it half way, just fill it up with water change water). Then change half of it again with clout sollution water, I think that comes out to being the same as how I do it. good luck, Ron
