API general cure
I am dealing with an internal parasite or worms in my tank right now. I started treatment with API general cure.
It's a 30 gallon tank and all that is left is a single angel and 3 neons.
I saw some improvement in the first 24 hours. You are suppose to treat the tank, wait 48 hours and remove 25% of the water then retreat the tank. Wait another 48 hours and then add carbon to remove the meds.
My problem is that I messed up. I missed the 48 hours mark and didn't get to remove the water and retreat for another 24 hours. I am now at the point where I should be adding carbon to remove the meds but my fish are still not back to 100%
I saw improvement after both doses within hours. For the first time in a couple weeks my fish were out in the open, swimming and not hiding in a corner. While they didn't eat anything they did show more interest in food as well. Lots of white stringy poops.
Now I'm not sure what to do. Do I just remove the meds and hope this clears up even though my fish are still not acting normal and are back to hiding? Do another water change and retreat?
I was thinking a larger change like 50-75% perhaps and then retreat?
