it strips off the slime coat and with it parasites. then a bit of salt in the water
and the fish starts making new slime. slime contains both antibody and
anti-microbial proteins. Ingrid

yeah... or light bleach solution, like 1:10 dilution and then rinse like crazy. I
use betadine cause it is so easy and much less toxic to me when I use it. Ingrid

Ingrid wrote (at some point in the past...):
It is not a good idea to put the fish back into the tank they came from

until that tank is cleaned out or treated first for parasites.

Betadine (10%) I presume?

How many rinses before it is safe to put the fish back in?
