Exclamation Parasite meds not here

I ordered some jungles parasite fish food because my CT has internal parasites. It took over a week for the food to get here (I'll soak in garlic juice to get him to eat it) But it's the wrong type. They sent me anti bacteria fish food!

At this point his belly is always slightly bloated and he has stringy poop. Do you think he'll be good in the next 7-10 days it'll take for the food to get here? I swear, I feel so angry at them right now!

Are there any Petsmarts near you? They carry the Anti-Parasite pellets. Also, if you are concerned, the medicine that is in the pellets that makes them work is Metronidazole. If there is a Vet near you, you can just get a few Metro capsules/tables, dissolve them in water and soak frozen blood worms in it, then feed. It's much cheaper and faster (assuming you have a local vet).
