Great medicine for quarantining most fish

General Cure is praziquantel plus metronidazole. Treats flukes plus a variety of parasites including brook. Well tolerated by most fish, and won't harm the biofilter in your QT. Can be mixed with food + Focus and fed to fish as a very effective treatment for intestinal worms and parasites. Better than Prazi Pro for flukes because GC is a powder, it contains no alcohol that can promote bacterial blooms.

A must have!

Pros: Works great!

Cons: none

This is one of the first go to meds for my QT process. I literally watched a dying Moorish Idol come back to life within hours of using this antibiotic. Its easier on the fish and works great! Highly recommend.

Very satisfied

I had an unidentified parasite impacting a freshwater planted tank for months. This cleared it right up in a single use, no harm to sensitive fish or plants.

General Cure Medication

Took care of the parasite problem that I had. I was worried about the inverts I had in the tank, but the meds did not harm them. I would use this product again.
