    Due to a case gill flukes, I did a PP treatment this weekend (took them out of main tank for the treatment).

    Discus are back in the main tank now & they have all eaten & are acting normally. One of the discus (a wild) has brown staining marks on the clear part of his tail m& fins. Can anything be done to help this situation?

    Thanks in advance.

    Does anyone know where PP can be sourced these days?

    Went to the usual bulk Chemists & they now inform me that it has been taken off the shelf due to their "bomb making" potencial :P

    Some said that to me, but finally one actually checked & I think it is that you can't buy more than a certain amount, but they can order it in for you. I got it from the chemist in Piccadilly shopping centre, Sydney. I can dig up their phone no if you need it.

    I have seen it on the shelves at a Chemist Warehouse up here. 50g for $8.99.

    I landed up finding a Chemist that had some in stock (Was a lucky find IMO), but it seems as though it's getting harder & harder to come by.

    Of course 50g does go a damn long way

    How long is the stock solution viable?

    I have a 2.5" discus with rapid/forced gill movements and "fat" lips which don't come together when he breathes. Hides in dark places, etc.

    I am hoping a 4 hour pp dip in a small tank will make a difference.
    Am I doing the right thing? Should I just go for the 10 min treatment first?

    Thanks

    keep your stock solution in a clean steril bottle wrapped in foil in the fridge, i make mine up with distilled water and still effective at a month old.

    I'll have to put a bottle under my Air Conditioner drain when it warms up.

    How long until I would expect to see improvement after a 5 Hr treatment?
    Quite a few strange things on the floor of the tank.

    Thanks

    http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5012/...743ddf94_z.jpg

    its gotten worse to the point where i think it may kill her, though she doesnt seem to be affected it has spread to her scales now!!

    no other fish in the tank has it, ammonia etc are all 0.

    i heard protozin gets rid of it too?
