I don't think you can tell. If you use it, though, make sure its rinsed really well.

Kaspaa just ate! i have some flakes laying around and they have little blood worms (i think) in them so i got one of those and put it in, it eventually sank to the bottom and he gobbled it up! :)

yeah it seems so, he's swimming a little more so i think he's feeling a bit better :)
i'm still supposed to medicate him two more days so maybe after that he'll be all better!
now i have to go to the store and get blood worms
i've spent more trying to keep him alive than i actually paid for him :P

That's always the case Unless you have obscenely expensive marine fish.

If you can get daphnia at your local shop feed him that coming off the med treatments. They should devour it as they would blood worms, but it is easier for them to digest, and after coming off of antibiotics their digestion is a bit off for a few days. Heavy foods like blood worms can make them bloated and constipated until their digestive tract returns to normal ( a couple days)

You might have to changed his food. What type are you feeding him?
