    No, that is for bacterial infections, your issue is with with external parasites.

    Just google "Marine fish with Flukes"

    Slow down and take a few deep breaths, do some reading and proceed.

    no expert here but it looks like what you bought is for freshwater?? I'd hold off using it until you get good advice about it

    I know you're anxious but Corailline's advice was good - slow down and do some reading before deciding a course of action - did you read the post she put up?

    OK. I just grabbed about 13 of them back out.
    I am reading the bottle and the box and it does not say anywhere on either that its for freshwater only.
    It does say not for invertebrates or new aquariums.. that's it.. but I see on the website after you said this, it does say freshwater.

    I did some research on the chemical. It is the same one used in Instant Oceans Life Guard. 1-chloro-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-4-imidazolidinone
    Which is used for salt water
