A while back, I read one of your posts in which you stated that you felt that Flubendazole would kill velvet... At any rate, I brought a fish home recently (a Betta), was not too careful with quarantining him and spawned him. A day after I removed him from the spawn tank, I noticed he was clamped...took a flashlight to him and he was covered in velvet.
I was pretty sure his fry would develop velvet as well, but I didn't do anything with them for a few days, until I could actually see the velvet on them (didn't want to subject 5 day old fry to medication needlessly). Friday night, I took a flashlight to then 10 day old fry and noticed that they were covered with velvet.
I went back and did a search on killietalk for your post on the subject, and treated the tank with 1/4 tsp. Flubendazole per 5 gallons. I checked on them 24 hours later...and most of them were clean of velvet.
I checked on them again this morning, 4 days after the single treatment, and there is a tank full of 14 day old fry that /appear/ quite healthy and active.
