NEON has internal parasites )= )=
He was the one who was always healthy, and I chose him, so, I hate to admit it, but he is more important to me than Velvet was, and Velvet also died of internal parasites.
How did I find out? I come home, look at neon, and there is a long white poop stuck in him! SERIOUSLY, I really don't want him to die.
Luckily it's not a bad case. Yet. He's still swimming just fine and eating normal, his energy level seems the same as before.
How do I treat this? I never really got a clear answer. I can't do the garlic juice soaked pellets trick, because I don't know that it really works and I'm leaving on a trip in a month. I have maracyn 2, AQ salt, espom salt, ich attack, and metholine blue. Can I use any of this to treat him?
Or should I buy jungles parasite clear tabs? And does he NEED to be fed bloodworms? I don't want to feed him them anymore.
