Today morning noticed a thin long white string like waste from my goldie.
Could this be effect of Hexamita Parasite ?
White stringy excrement is often indicative of an internal parasite. A small piece of cooked pea will act as a laxative and may clear the parasite. If that doesn't work, you could feed flakes or pellets treated with antibiotics.
have read about treating the water with Metronidazole in some articles.Will that help? Any idea ?
'Jungle Parasite Clear' contains that.
That med is not available here
Would normal Metronidazole tablets work ?
The searches i've just done suggest yes
seems to give good info about that.
Thanks a lot Jase
Is this dosage correct then ?
thats where i don't know, linked what i could, but i wouldn't like to get the wrong ratio and cause a problem
maybe its a case of constipation...
What to do then? overdose will effect the fishes right ?
Peas are not available now as you know will have to wit til mid of November i guess
Any other remedy ?
On that link i quoted the chap said "Getting the one-shot physiological dose into the target fish/es is what is pre-eminently important here, and the seemingly higher dosage neither is dangerous nor as far as I've ever encountered, distasteful to fishes"
so i'd say just get your measurements as precise as you can really.
This is not a product or med that i've ever tried, so can only really go by what i've seen in articles like that one.
The problem for you chaps there is you don't seem to have the same range of products as we have near me, so can only go by what you've said you have and nearest match is that link i've found.
you can get peas now.. in any mall or shopping complex you will get peeled peas...
But they are salted ones and somewhere i read that salted peas must be avoided. What you say ?
The ones suspended in water may well be salted as a preservative, what about frozen? often on the packs i find they all say 'Sodium 0.0g'
how about there?
Frozen maybe available.have to take a look at the store but most of them sell the preservative ones which should be avoided right ?
Most 'canned' peas' have added salt and sugars.
Had more luck with frozen peas entirely.
Will look for the frozen ones
in malls or supermarket the peas available are frozen ones and not salted so they maybe used..
Will get in Big Bazaar ?
sure take my word for it...
Will get in the Sealdah Branch right ?
yes you will get.. you can even try leafy vegetables.. boil them properly until they are soft and try to feed them..
Thanks a lot bro
