 Hi  All:
 
 Just  wondering...
 
 Will  dosing  Metronidazole  IV  (liquid  injection)  help  removal  of  Internal  Parasites?...
 Though  a  few  have,  time  and  again,  said  "it  will"...I'm  skeptical  about  this...
 
 What's  your  stand?...
 Thanks  for  your  opinion,

 Neil,
 
 the  issue  is  not  injecting  the  IV  to  fish,  but  pouring  the  IV  to  the  tank  directly...

 IMO  if  you  add  it  to  the  water  you  need  to  have
 -  a  temperature  of  32C
 -  absorption  is  through  gills  so  deciding  on  the  correct  dose  is  tricky.
 -  you  need  to  redose  every  8  hours  for  powdered  tablets  dunno  if  its  the  same  for  IV  fluids
 
 You  are  better  of  mixing  the  powder  to  BH  and  feeding  them  Smile

 Hi  Beta:
 
 Of  course,  I  too  mix  'Metro'  crushed  tabs  with  food  and  feed  them...
 
 But,  here,  I  want  to  know...Is  "Metro  IV"  as  effective  as  the  'tablets'  OR  not...
 
 However,  the  recommended  dosage  is  100ml  for  100  lts  of  water,  with  50%WC  in  12hrs  with  fresh  dose...to  be  followed  for  three  days...and  repeated  later  after  a  fortnight...
 
 So,  though  I  know  'Metro  tabs'  does  a  good  job,  I'm  unsure  of  "Metro  IV"...Hence,  the  thoughts...
 
 Regards,

 hi  nag,
 I  ve  used  it  a  couple  of  times..  and  can  be  used  on  fish  who  is  not  eating  food  and  is  in  very  bad  shape..
 The  results  are  the  same  ..the  only  diff  is  that  it  costs  3  times  the  cost  of  the  strip...
 
 IMO  u  should  go  for  the  tabs  only...

 Hi,
 
 i  have  used  Metronidazole  IV.    Works  well.    i  have  found  tabs  hard  to  dissolve.
 
   water  temp.  to  be  32  degree  celcius.
 
 400  -  500mg  per  10  gallons.  
 
 If  using  1st  time,  then  twice  a  day  after  8  hours.
 i.e.  1st  dose  at  8  am  of  400  -  500  mg  per  10  gals
           2nd  dose  at  4pm  of  400  -  500  mg  per  10  gals.
 
 do  this  for  3  -  5  days.
 
 
 Dont  forget  to  change  50  %    water  every  day.  dont  let  the  temp.  fall  below  32  celcius.
 
 Maintain  water  temp.  for  one  week  and  then  slowly  reduce  it  over  time.
