, they can be quite aggressive. They get pretty big too and IMO will outgrow a 10 gallon in under 6 months if fed with a quality food.

aquabid has the best price on kanamyacin (mvp), angelsplus has the best prices on the prazi and metro and jehmco is a good source for the panacur (flub)

DON'T, they sell 100g for $65 where kensfish and angelsplus sells 100g for $13. Same stuff but you pay 5x's more for the "seachem" label

metronidazole, it is under parasite meds at angelsplus and combo meds at kensfish. There is no real down side to using metro and prazi as they are both very safe.

tetras are in general pretty weak fish and usually get diseases first. Sounds like they are pretty much goners but you can try a hydrogen peroxide bath for them. to get rid of anything external.
