But, quick question, how exactly to I float it? Does it have to be secure. If so, how?

Yes, make sure it is secured so it doesn't tip over. You can use something to attach it to the side of the tank or you can do what I did and lower the water level in the larger tank so it kind of sits on the bottom of the tank. This could cause the heat to distribute unevenly but it's worked for me.

Hi again. I got the Kanaplex, but on the bootle it said that I do one dose every two days or a maximum of 3 doses? what does that mean? Can I only use it for 9 days? Someone please explain the dosing. Also, does he get a timed bath in the Kanaplex water, or does live in it?

You use one level scoopful for ever 5 gallons. You need to dilute the med for the exact amount of water he's in. So if you got a 2 gallon acrylic bowl and put 1 gallon of water in it you'd dilute for 1 gallon. how much water is he in? It's been a week so I'm trying to remember everything that's happened.. have you at least started epsom salts by now?

You dose every other day.

Day 1: 100% water change, dose
Day 2: skip
Day 3: 100% water change, dose
Day 4: skip
Day 5: 100% water change, dose
Day 6: Skip

That is one full round. You can continue for another full week
Day 7: 100% water change, dose
Day 8: skip
Day 9: 100% water change, dose
Day 10: skip
Day 11: 100% water change, dose
Day 12: skip


You can do this for 2 weeks. Dose and do the water change at the same time every day so he gets meds every 48 hours.

I already divided the meds, and I just needed dosing. Thanks for the help.

You can't divide in powder form, you know this right? You need to do liquid divisions.

Good luck! Make sure you're using the epsom salts too..
