    Figured out that I have flukes. I think I caught it it early enough so none of my fish will die from it.

    Anyways, I purchased Prazipro and dosed it about noon today. Upon returning home around 9 ish, I turned off my pumps to feed my fish and I noticed a lot of little white specs moving around in the water.

    Almost like little white pods. The were not there before, so I'm guessing that they are the flukes falling off?

    I was under the impression that the flukes would fall off from dying. Is it possible for them to detach from the fish first and then die from treatment in the water column?

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I imagine the flukes can detach and die during any part of the treatment. It makes sense to me that you might see them in the water column. Did you do this treatment in the QT?
