Dosing schoutedeni's snail tank with Prazipro?

Post by astrid37 » Wed Jul 04, 2018 1:37 pm

I'm treating my 55g with Prazipro due to a parasite sighting. Inhabitants include an adult T. schoutedeni. I'm also inclined to dose the snail tank where I grow the snails to feed my schoutedeni, but I'm concerned she'll get double dosing that way (already dosed in her tank water then the snails will have been effectively "soaked" in Prazipro). Do you think it's ok to also dose the snail tank in this scenario? Thanks!

Overdosing PraziPro is very tough to do, so you’ll likely be fine doing that.

Awesome, thanks! When you soak their food in Prazipro, do you cut it with any water? Or soak it in straight, undiluted Prazipro?
