Neon keeps on twitching his head when ever he gets overly excited (if he swims too fast, flares too much, there's too much current, etc.) And in another thread it was confirmed he has gill parasites. (Note: this is the only symptom he has, so it isn't severe)
I was wondering how I could treat him? He's in a filtered 10 gallon, and he's the only fish in there. I plan on adding cories in a few months... and no, the tank isn't cycled, I'm doing the fish in method. I do 25-50% water changes daily.
I own maracyn 2 and the salts (espom and aqua) so what should I do to treat him and what should the exact doseage be?
