Fish difficulty?

I've been tossing around what anthias I want to get for awhile and I decided on a Ventralis anthias dies anyone know if these are difficult like the purple queen or are the easier?

Very difficult to get eating. Try lyretails or Bartletts. And remember, all anthias are very prone to internal parasites and it's best to qt them and treat with PraziPro before adding them to your tank.

I have 3 lyretails in my shopping cart right now....I have not been able to find prazi pro anywhere though. Will any treatment that works on parasites be adequate while in qt? Also, I was going to be qt'ing 3 blue reef chromis as well can they go through the treatment too?

Thanks!!

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

PraziPro is praziquantel. It's the same stuff the vet gives your dog if it has worms. Anthias are very prone to intestinal worms.
