Little skinny but not terribly. I would do a preventive dosing with prazi. Congrats on the new puff.

Welch, you mean dosing it's food, right? If you're going to treat an animal like that with meds, there is no such thing as a "preventative" dose. That's a great way to make the parasite immune to the med. Do the FULL treatment.

How long should I feed him the dosed bloodworms for? I'm using API General Cure which has both Prazi and Metro.
Here's a picture of him eating the first medicated bloodworm!
