i wouldn't worry too much about losing the cycle in the main tank. do you have corals in there? any CUC? if you don't have any of those, you can simply throw in a piece of raw shrimp

I don't have anything in there. I think throwing in a shrimp will cause a huggggeeee algae bloom too. Would a couple ammonia drops a couple times a week be okay? I don't want the nitrates to skyrocket either, so I'll only use a couple drops

Well, I got them all moved in to qt yesterday. 2 of the 3 are eating. I want to wait until they're all eAting to medicate the tank. I was planning on trying "quick cure ich" first because it has fomalin, but does anyone have any ideas of stronger meds I can use for these flukes? They seem to be resistant to prazi, so no more prazi.

Waterlifes Sterazin, similar to parazin. I don't know the active ingredients but they also make para which has a broader parasite spectrum where sterazin is specific to flukes only. But it cant be used if crustaceans echinoderms ( Sea Urchins, Starfish), s/w Sharks, Rays, Piranha, Sturgeon and Sterlets are in the tank.

I could be pointing you to another prazi med but its worth looking at in detail because i think its alittle different.

I'm unable to find the active ingredient in sterazin, but it might only be available in the UK, I haven't seen and US stores selling it :/

If I use a bucket on the main tank, and then use that same bucket once the flukes are all gone, could I possibly reintroduce flukes even if the bucket was dry, or should I sanitize it somehow?

Would freshwater kill any possible parasites on it?
