    Not sure what you used for treatment as it may impact filter.

    No problem with feeding if your confident the filter can handle it and wasn't knocked back too much by the treatment, if not I'd be inclined to cut down the amount of food.

    Can't answer about water tests.... Again depends what chemical you treated. Most don't affect accuracy of water readings but some do.

    Hello RS, Using NT flukesolve, which the outlet recommended, have cut down the food and will do some water checks tomorrow, fish are certainly twitching about and still flashing but I think its the product probably aggravating the parasite making them itch, I know its early days but some fish now have dorsal fins up which is nice to see.... Steve.

    Flukesolve for Costia?? Hmmmm.
    I don't think you will find a satisfactory outcome there unfortunately,

    Fluke solve will not affect any of. your water tests though.
    Products containing formalin will affect some types of ammonia kit.

    NT Labs don't make Fluke Solve.

    Do you mean Flukasol?

    If so that sadly won't do anything for Costia.

    It will kill flukes if you have any.

    It won't affect water parameters so you can carry on feeding if they're eating.

    If you told the shop you have Costia and they sold you this, then I would be going back with a photo of the costia on the slide and asking why your fish are even worse.... then asking for the money back, or correct treatment for free.
