I´ve got a new batch of altums, and they really look great. All of them were alive when recieving, and all are still alive. But I have a question.. Should I medicate them just to be safe, or should I just hope for the best? This is filmed less than 48 hours after getting them at the airport.. And yes, that is dried flakes they are eating.
You should deparasite/deworm them with medicated food (not in water) after they are all settled in and eating fine. Don't wait until they start showing a decreased appetite or other symptoms. With good water changes, well cycled filters and a UV filter, you should not need to medicate the water.
God listens. He may not always give you everything you want, when you want it; but he always gives you what you really need, when you need it most!
