Malachite Green for Velvet. Can I Dose Again?
Treating my new fish for Velvet. They came home from LFS with the parasite ergg!! Not too impressed. Anyway, I have been treating them with Maracide (malachite green) and the directions are to treat for 5 days but it doesn't say anything about dosing again. Most of the fish are looking much better but one or two are still looking "dusty". Does anyone know if I am able to give them a second treatment without harming them? I cannot use coppersafe for the water because I have live plants and shrimp that I would like to keep living. My QT is out of commission, so the fish had to be placed in community tank, and I didn`t notice the velvet until the next day. If anyone has any info on this it would be greatly appreciated.
25gal planted tank
8 harlequin rasboras (with Velvet)
1 apistogramma cacatouides
4 panda corys
1 bristlenose pleco
9 Amano shrimp (yes I know the apisto is not compatible but at this point the shrimp as big as he is!)
