Vorticella & scutariella

Wouldn't you know it, I seem to have gotten water parameters straightened out and not it looks like they have vorticella and/or scutareilla.

Now what? I have paraguard. And read that doing a salt dip clears this up. I'm afraid to do a salt dip but if you feel that's the best treatment I will have to do it.

Can you weigh in on this; your experience and what worked for you.

Thank you again for your continued support!!

I used salt dips with API Salt. Table Salt is not good for them.

I have heard of people using Paraguard, just haven't tried that method myself.
