    My tang is a goner.... He pretty much went behind the tank and curled up... Doesn't move.. Prazi seems to have stressed my chromis too... Corals look fine.
    Toadstool is closed though?

    I re-introduced carbon and turned on my UV light to remove the medication... *sigh*

    yeah.. i checked.. and my vampire is dead. :(

    i hope my other fish do not get infected with whatever he had. i will probably replace him with a regal tang or another vampire tang. Not sure which.

    Really sorry to hear that. Of all the times I've used Prazi, I never saw a negative reaction from any of the fish, and I usually dose 1-1/2 to two times the recommended amount.

    yeah.. the fish look normal now. the toadstool hasnt opened completely yet.. but im not worried yet.

    how long until the medication is completely out of the system with the carbon running?

    Carbon works fairly quick. You could do a partial wc if anything looks odd. In the future, it's a good idea to do a half dose on any medications that you are using for the first time. It's easier on the fish, and gives you room for error if you don't calculate it correctly. Like I said before, Prazi Pro is a very safe medication. I normally use it in conjunction with Cupramine without issue.
