    Default Preemptive Dose of API General Cure for New Fish

    Just curious if anyone automatically doses some General Cure when they get a new batch of fish to kill off the usual suspects, even if the fish don't show signs immediately?

    Last year my new fish would not eat and after two weeks the only thing that gave them a kick in the pants and got them eating and acting normal was a dose of General Cure. They would have died had I not done this.

    I'm thinking for future new fish shipments to always give them some General Cure after a day or so to avoid any issues. Good/bad idea?

    You're on the right track! Although General Cure is a fairly weak medication. Check out this thread... http://forum.simplydiscus.com/showth...ine-*questions

    You must �� percent quarantine any new fish, especially discus. Unfortunately most people like to gamble. Watch Als presentation on keeping discus. It will explain everything.

    A new fish will look healthy for even 2 weeks,before their parasite shows. It's best to do a full QT.
