Hi! I hope Koko will read this and help me out cause I'm told she's the expert on silver here. I'm looking into colloidal silver I can get in my country for my fish first aid kit. What I found is available in two forms: liquid and powder. There's a slight possibility I may need a prescription for the later and ask at the pharmacy what the concentration is and what additives it contains. The liquid one is described on label as 30%/l solution and recommended use in mouth was and desinfenction is 1 part of silver to be disolved in 2 or 4 parts of water. It also says that 100ml can be applied to treat 5 liters (aprox. about 1,5gal if my calculations are correct.) Is this concentration any close to the 500ppm Koko recommended in another thread? Should I go for liquid or powder? I'll have to order it as they probably won't have any in the pharmacy and the delivery will take some time.
Hi there! Sorry if this is not the right place to start this thread, though it seems to me it should be. I'm a bit of a control freak and like to be prepared for what comes so I'm making myself a fish first aid kit with all medicine I may ever need. Where I live the good stuff is hard to obtain as tend to be expensive and pet shops rarely sell them as having them on stock means 0 profit due to low demand which also results in the common practice of "extending" indefinately expiration dates on the packages of products. Already happened to me several times that I would buy something online and the good till stamp would be modified to a more convenient date by some forgery artist wannabe. In store itself ain't much of a different story. When asked why they sell expired goods, the shop person readily explains that this med or whatever is practically eternal in its effectiveness and never looses its healing or nutritive properties. This has made me resort to ordering online almost everything for my pets from UK. Hence the question in this section of the forum. I want to buy some colloidal silver for my fish stash but all I could find when searching the net is 20ppm and from what I read in a post by this forum's founder and reknown expert in c.silver, Koko, the concentration should be from 500ppm up to 1000ppm. If any of you British fellow goldfish keepers could advise me on where I can order it, I would very, very much appreciate it. Oh, and one more thing! I found this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Colloidal-Pets-Silver-250-ml/dp/B0063FWTTG/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1441175174&sr=8-9&keywords=colloidal+silver Do you know if it would do for fish too? Thank you in advance for all your help, M
I've posted a bunch of pictures of my other guys, but not many of FiFi. c: and I noticed that her colors are changing nicely now. I got some really nice pictures of her and her fins today, so I decided to post them. I think she is well on her way to turning orange and white, hm? c:
