    Mimic tang with flukes

    Picked up a mimic tang this past weekend and believe he has flukes.. What can I treat him with to cure and rid the parasites? I was hoping to use prazi pro but no local store around me carries it, wondering what else I could use to treat it? I want to start treating ASAP before it gets worse.
