    Hi Ashr,

    Prazi Pond Plus is just Praziquantal.

    See the Praziquantal section in Lee's post: http://www.reefsanctuary.com/forums/fish-diseases-treatments/37765-de-worming-marine-fish-super-pooper-snooper.html

    Also read this too (Post 33 & 34):

    You might need to buy a Electric Scale to measure mg. You can probally pick one up at a Pipe Shop.

    Hope this helps.

    Is there any way I can just eye ball it? i know that sounds bad but I just dont have the cash to go and buy a scale now.. I wanna do this as soon as I can. It would seem even a little pinch of this would do the job..Or am I completely wrong on this end?

    I can't answer that. I don't know the affects if you overdose.

    I would wait to Lee chimes in.

    Maybe you can take it to a near by college or use a scale at Bulk Barn or the Supermarket.

    I think I will add about 10mg to their food.

    So I have dosed a little bit two times now. The thing is I dont know how long this should take. He is still pooping the long white/stripped dark poo. I mixxed this in their food for a while and then added it to the tank. I have not done a water change in about a week as well as i was told not to.

    any ideas?


    Thanks

    According to Lee's directions you dose once every 6 days.

    I had give mine a few treatments until I saw results.
