Considering Azure's age, panic now. Besides, you'll feel better panicking. At least, I do. Then I feel like I'm doing something constructive.

Yes, I had internal parasites. I found a marine veterinarian site in regards to different meds based on the diseases and they stated metro as one drug for internal parasites. I started talking with Darkmoon after I had already dosed and she was good with it. Although she did say for me to try the Tetra Parasite Clear if it didn't work (sorry, I don't know the drugs in the Parasite Clear!) Although I believe the drugs that Sakura listed for you above are the other one's you can use. My issue was that my fish wasn't eating, so I didn't have the luxury of getting those drugs internally into my fish. However, the metro worked as a bath treatment!

Praziqutanel, metronidazole, and acriflavine are the active ingredients in Parasite Clear. Although when I searched petsmart.com it said the product was no longer available. But I think it's just not available through petsmart.

That's amazing! I didn't think metro worked as a bath but my boy is eating so I've sacrificed the live worms into the metro (they promptly die in there...) The mix is soaking in the fridge right now, will be ready in 5 hours... I thought I'll just go with the meds, I don't want to mess around with 2 things and have none of them work :/...

Yeah, that's a good idea. Plus he gets worms. He'll like that. It's like getting ice cream for a sore throat.

Yeah, I hope he can find them before the metro dissolves in the water.. He's getting good at finding his food though, I'm training him to find his food in a small container :)
