So, A ryukin (Flipper) that I bought from LFS in december continues to flash. She is my first GF, but I've had many other types of fish and tanks. I want to treat with prazi. I've been treating with 3% salt for one week. I bought powder prazi on amazon. It states that dosage is 10gr/1000gal. My tank is 29gal. I have a small pocket scale.

I know this is basic math, but if I mess it up I'll kill my fish. Will somebody tell me the correct dosage, please. :help:

Its powder. No, not prazipro. I'm utterly computer challenged. I will try to paste a link. Thanks for looking.

I was wrong. it was ebay, not amazon. I hope this worked.

Do you mean 0.3% salt?

Here is the math:

10 grams = 1000 gallons -----> 1 gram = 100 gallons ----> 0.29 grams = 29 gallons.

Since Prazi has a very generous safe curve, go ahead and use 0.5 grams to treat each time.
