Hello Charles, thanks for the tip. Next time I'm doing battle with bloat, I will try the brine shrimp method. I have soaked pellets in metronidazol before with fairly good results (of course the fish have to be eating, and a fish that is eating isn't too far gone yet). regards, Ron

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.
