A lot of people make their own fish food and do it in a similar way. Just be wary of thawing and refreezing frozen options like that. It's never a good idea with our own food and for our fish's food. Maybe just break up the frozen cubes of fertility frenzy and add the smaller chunks to your mix right before freezing. I wouldn't add focus to this mix though- there doesn't seem to be a reason to.Really? Melypr, i found a small ice cube tray that i want to free my food in. I want to unthaw fertility frenzy, add selcon, garlic, marine snow, and fuel, amd crunch some pellets for Zoas in it and freeze it and then just have the cubes
It would definitely chop it up, while still heating it a bit in the process. But much less than thawing it out right.U think that would work with frozen? And if so idk if i have a blender to do that specific job that we dont use for human consumption?
I prefer General Cure, because it also contains metro for treating intestinal worms and it doesn't contain a solubilizing agent which can interact negatively with other medications. However, I've also used Prazipro in the past, and I have nothing negative to say about it.What would you say is the better treatment for worms prazi or general cure ?
Also what's the next best way for me to get cp since my vet will not hook me up
Yes stick to the plan.... unless you want to try TTM. All fish can carry ick into the tank, even those that arn't normally effected by it as much as other fish.I have a question (I seem to always find myself here every time I think about getting a fish). I'm getting a yellow watchman goby next week. Can I profelecticly treat the fish with copper safe? Or do I not need to QT goby? My usual regiment is coppersafe for a month and prazipro for a week. Should I stick to this plan with the goby or no? As always thak you so much for your answers.
@melypr1985 what would us guys do without you and humblefish! Thank you so much for your answer. I still can't figure out which fish you can't treat with copper.Yes stick to the plan.... unless you want to try TTM.

Your very welcome. Mostly scaleless fish like puffers, sharks, eels, mandarins ect. There are a few other fish that have been shown to be sensitive to copper as a general whole like wrasses & angels. These last two are mostly generalities and there are always exceptions to the rule.
Just want to check to make sure that this is still a pretty good list since it is a bit older. I either have all of it now or have it on order. Anything else before I consider myself ready to start buying and quarantining fish?
- Coppersafe with an API copper test kit
- Seachem Kanaplex
- Seachem Metroplex or Metro-MS (both are just as good)
- Ruby Reef Rally (this product was worked well for me for both velvet & brook)
I would probably add formalin to the list, as it seems to be more effective at clearing brook/velvet, and can also be used as an alternative treatment for prazi resistant external worms.Just want to check to make sure that this is still a pretty good list since it is a bit older.
