Thanks for the information and your help! I had previously dosed the tank with metro for 2 weeks using 1-2 scoops per10 gal every 48hrs.
The flashing decreased after the 3x prazi bath but was not eliminated for the dartfish, flashing recently resumed for two fish I had not seen flash in weeks.
I was surprised not to see the fish react during the last two prazi baths, previously they would start flashing shortly after the medication was added, presumably from flukes convulsing, but there was no reaction during the last two baths.
Fenbendazole is an option. I’m not a fan of it, I’ve have seen severe toxic reactions in catfish, darters and flashlight fish. Those fish are not closely related, so the resin for the toxicity isn’t clear to me, and then I worry I’ll see the same issue in others species. I’m camping this weekend so I can’t pull a dose for you, but you should be able to find a reference online. 2 ppm sticks in my mind…..
