    Here are two different schedules for treatment of certain external parasites with Praziquantel. There is no particular preference over one or the other. The schedules extend to 6 rounds, which is the optimum. PRAZIQUANTEL PROTOCOLS A. FIVE DAY ROUNDS Day 1: Big WC (>50%), add Prazi. Make sure salt is at the appropriate concentration. This is the beginning of Round 1. Day 5: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 1. Day 6: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 2. Day 10: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 2. Day 11: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 3. Day 15: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 3. Day 16: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 4. Day 20: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 4. Day 21: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 5. Day 25: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 5. Day 26: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 6. Day 30: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 6. This is enough for 6 rounds, should you need to go out that far. Some reminders: Prazipro should only have salt to 0.1% if you are using regular dose. If double dosing Prazipro, you can raise salt to 0.3%. If you are using Prazi powder or tablets, then salt is at 0.3%. A. SEVEN DAY ROUNDS Day 1: Big WC (>50%), add Prazi. Make sure salt is at the appropriate concentration. This is the beginning of Round 1. Day 2: Add another dose of Prazi. We routinely double dose with Prazi for the first round in this protocol. Day 5: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 1. Day 8: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 2. Day 12: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 2. Day 15: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 3. Day 19: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 3. Day 22: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 4. Day 26: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 4. Day 29: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 5. Day 33: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 5. Day 36: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, and add Prazi. This is the start of Round 6. Day 40: Big WC (>50%), replace salt, but do not add Prazi. This is the end of Round 6.

    Please have her read our guidelines for healthy goldfish. It helps to have information from an "authoritative" source rather than just you. Tell her how you make use of this information to keep your fish healthy. Then do some brainstorming with her to see how she could improve conditions for her fish. Changing filter medium destroys nitrifiers. Those that live on the inner surface of the filter, on the blue stuff or on the walls of the tank survive, so the cycle bump may last only a few days, but does hurt the fish. Please point out to her that the only the manufacturer benefits by replacing filter cartridge before it disintegrates from old age. Rather, she should simply empty the dirty water from the filter when she does a water change, and rinse the loose crud from the filter medium. A cartridge kept clean in this way can last for a few years and will develop a healthy population of nitrifiers. Many dorms have limits on tank size, and often say no more than 10 gallons. She can provide the goldfish with a decent environment by getting a 10 gallon (or more if allowed) underbed tote for them. Here is one example. We recommend 20 gallons per fish because this works well for most common aquariums (although not tall ones). However, we could also determine the fish load by surface area. Surface area works better than volume for containers that have less than 12 inches or more than 16 inches of height. For these we should provide 2 square feet of surface area per goldfish. The 10 gallon tote above has ~ 3 square feet of surface area, not perfect, but way better than what she has now. This tote has about 4.5 square feet of surface area, ideal for two goldfish. A small filter and weekly water changes keep the fish healthy. Goldfish grow big and need swimming area for good health. Most college students have first-hand knowledge of the health effects of sitting on your butt in class and studying most of the day. If she removes the betta, she can keep the goldfish in the 10 gallon tank if she changes at least 3 gallons of water daily, 5 gallons every other day, or 100% twice a week.

    This is Fimble waiting for the QT to fill up so she can reach to have a drink. Why she can't drink out of her bowl is beyond me!

    Ha! That's so true. In the picture you can see my nitrate filter - it's hooked up to the outside tap but it leaks a little. Fimble will drink from that puddle too - dust and all! Our other cat Midge will drink from her bowl fine. On the other hand, she hasn't figured out how a sofa works. Here she is wedged on top of the cushions between me & my husband. Apparently it's idiotic to lie on the actual seat Cats are weird. Period.

    Ebony has assured me that tap water is not fit to drink unless it makes a puddle on the sidewalk. Used fish water, in contrast, is always fit for a kitty.

    She's offered things many times to be nice to members. If you want AquaAurora, you can have Lorenzo here for just the cost of shipping. He's a pretty handsome boy. Already quarantined and healthy. Full of stars and chasing girls. Strong boy. He's going to be very beautiful when he grows up.

    Posted this green water photo of Robin on this thread in April. Copied over here to compare with today's photo. Excuse the quality. He's getting more "Ryukin" shape. Love him so much.

    He looks great Chris! Shembje and Winslow from December of last year and then today. Both are girls. Both around 8-10 grams in first photos and 60-70 in second photos.

    As little as they are, they probably aren't so used to their environment as to be upset. Cover the sides of the tank for a while since they don't expect to see through the walls of the new pond. Fill the tank with pond water initially, then change 10% daily for a week to let them adapt slowly to the new water.
