 I  have  tried  this  method  it  has  worked  for  me  
 
 1.  If  you're  using  an  overhead  filter  (OHF),  remove  the  carbon  if  there's  any.
 
 2.  Do  a  50%  water  change.  Siphon  your  tank  until  it's  half  empty.  Replace  with  25%  chlorinated  water  and  25%  conditioned
 water.  (must  be  aerated  for  at  least  48  hours  )
 
 3.  Dissolve  the  Metronidazole  tablet/s  in  a  cup  of  warm  water.  It  works  best  when  dissolved  at  a  temperature  of  32+  degree  celsius  .  A  cup  with  50%-60%  "cofee-hot"  water  plus  40%-50%  tap  water  would  be  fine.
 
 4.  Let  the  tablet/s  dissolve  for  5-10  minutes.  Afterwards,  mix  well.
 
 5.  Drop  the  Metronidazole  solution  in  your  tank.  the  required  dosage  would  be  500  mg.  per  10  gallons.
 
 6.  Repeat  steps  2-5  after  48  hours.  You'd  need  around  7-8  doses  of  Metronidazole.  Usual  treatment  would  be  from  10-15
 days.  Observe  the  waste  of  your  fish  on  a  regular  basis.  If  your  fish  shows  improvement  before  10-15  days,  there's  nothing
 wrong  in  finishing  the  entire  cycle.  extend  treatment  if  neccessary.
 
 7.  If  you  have  a  heater,  set  it  at  30-32  degrees.  Hexamita  thrives  in  cold  water.  While  the  medication  used  to  kill  them
 works  best  in  warm  water.  .  Just  be  sure
 to  dissolve  the  Metronidazole  in  a  warm  water.

 yes  you  can  try  the  same  with  metro....
 
 crush  the  tablet  and
 
 remove  the  coating  of  the  tablet  
 
 only  the  white  powder  is  left  mix  it  in  hot  water  at  40  -  50  degree  
 
 doasage  your  flowerhorn   with  little  quantity  of  medicine  more  number  of  time  
 
 use  ink  dropper   or  eye  droppers  
 
 directly  remove  the  fish  from  water  drop  the  medicine  directly  in  your  Fh  s  mouth...little  deep   not  very  deep
 
 dosage  i  may  do  a  100  mg  for  samll  fish  upto  4  inch   for  bigger  fishes
 
 250  mg  for  bigger  fishes
 
 if  you  are  using  a  400  mg  tab  then  powder  it   and  divide  it  into  equal  parts  (2  equals  or  4  equals  )
 
 2  equzl  divide  will  make  200  mg  per  part  
 
 4  equzls  make  it  100  mg  per  gram  
 
 all  the  best

 THIS  IS  THE  BEST  FIND  IN  ALL  FOURM  ......................IS  IT  EATIN  JUST  DROP  ONE  AND  SEE  ......MY2  INCH  fh  GOT  WELLL  WITHIN  7  DAYS  .......YOUR  IS  TAKING  A  LITTLE  BIT  TIME  TO  GET  BACK  DONT  WORRY  ...........JUST  CONTINUE  THE  FOLLOWING  OR  START  ORAL  TREATMENT  AS  IT  CAN  GIVE  EFFECTIVE  TREATMENTS  ....LIKE  
 
 
 This  is  my  10  day  treatment  for  Hexamita:
 1.  Use  a  small  hospital  tank  around  10gal.
 2.  Add  a  small  sponge  filter  or  just  an  air  stone.
 3.  Raise  the  temp  up  to  90F  or  a  little  more.
 4.  Add  half  cup  of  salt  per  10gal.
 5.  1  capsule  or  1/4  teaspoon  of  metronidazole,  mix  it  with  a  small  amount  of  acetone  to  create  a  slurry  and  dump  it  in  the  hospital  tank.  If  you  can  find  dimetronidazole,  it  is  much  better  and  don't  require  acetone.
 6.  Do  50%  water  change  daily,  dose  metro  daily,  and  replenish  with  1/4  cup  of  salt  daily.  Make  sure  your  water  change  is  also  90F  or  a  little  hotter  than  the  tank  temp.
 7.  Treat  for  5  days.  Do  not  feed  him  during  this  treatment.  But  you  can  try  to  give  him  just  one  pellet  on  the  6th  day  if  you  like.  If  he  eats,  do  not  stop  the  treatment,  just  feed  him  very  little  from  the  6th  day  to  the  10th  day.
 8.  On  the  11th  day  do  a  50%  water  change  as  always  with  the  same  temp  of  90F  or  more  but  you  will  need  to  lower  your  heater  back  down  to  82F  or  whatever  temp  you  like  to  keep  your  fish.  This  will  complete  the  treatment.  
 9.  Once  you  are  satified  with  the  overall  health  of  the  fish,  you  can  move  him  back  into  his  home.
 
 Some  explainations:
 .  The  usage  of  a  small  hospital  tank  is  for  the  ease  of  water  changes  and  a  conservation  of  the  expensive  medication.  
 .  The  lack  of  filter  or  any  filtration  is  because  you  are  going  to  do  a  50%  water  change  without  any  feeding  so  the  amonia  level  is  very  low.  
 .  The  demand  of  a  high  temperature  is  because  metro  is  only  affective  at  high  temperature.  Most  heaters  don't  go  to  90F  or  more  but  some  do  such  as  the  Ebo  Jagers  and  a  few  others.
 .  The  use  of  salt  is  because  salt  will  increase  the  osmotic  pressure  in  the  water  which  helps  the  absorbtion  of  metro  through  the  gills  of  the  fish.  And  it  also  sooths  the  slime  coat.
 .  The  use  of  a  small  amount  of  acetone  is  to  dissolve  metro  in  water  since  metro  is  insoluable  in  water;  dimetro  is  water  soluable  so  no  need  to  use  acetone  with  dimetro.
 .  DO  NOT  heat  up  your  hospital  tank  before  you  introduce  the  fish!!!  You  should  get  your  hospital  tank  ready  and  at  the  same  temperature  of  the  fish's  environment.  Then  transfer  the  fish  to  the  hospital  tank  and  increase  the  temperature.

 SOME  ORAL  TREATMENTS  FOR  HEX
 
 The  recommended  treatment  for  hexamita  is  metronidazole  (Flagyl)  administered  in  a  medicated  food  or,  if  the  fish  are  not  eating,  in  a  bath  treatment.  Metronidazole  can  be  administered  orally  at  a  dosage  of  50  mg/kg  body  weight  (or  10  mg/gm  food)  for  5  consecutive  days.  A  recipe  for  a  gelatinized  food  is  shown  in  Table  1  .  The  medication  can  also  be  mixed  with  dry  food  using  fish  oil  as  a  binding  agent.  One  teaspoon  of  metronidazole  weighs  approximately  2.25  gm;  therefore  2  tsp.  should  be  added  to  each  pound  of  food.  The  drug  should  be  added  when  the  gelatinized  mixture  has  cooled,  but  has  not  yet  set.  The  medicated  food  can  then  be  frozen  for  storage.  During  the  5  day  treatment  regime  feed  only  the  medicated  food  to  the  fish.  If  fish  are  not  accustomed  to  a  gelatinized  food  they  can  be  trained  to  accept  the  mixture  by  preparing  the  food  without  medication  and  feeding  it  occasionally.  Training  should  be  done  when  fish  are  healthy  rather  than  waiting  until  they  are  sick.  Sick  fish  do  not  eat  well  and  may  completely  refuse  unfamiliar  food.
