I doubt the medicine will penetrate very far into the sand. It might take medicating the tank and a daily vacuum of the sand. Usually that kind of med only kills parasites that are free floating

will it be fine if i just stir up the sand with the vacuum while doing a daily vacuum it took a long time for the meds to get here as you can’t buy it in the uk so i don’t wanna use it and have it not kill them totally

Yeah, I think stirring it up and simultaneously vacuuming would be best
