I believe degradation in concentration would be the biggest issue. If you apply hydrogen peroxide to “used” water from the previous QT for the H2O2 bath at least some portion of it will go towards breaking down whatever organic waste is in the water. That said, it would be hard to quantify.I will also say I've only tested H2O2 using RODI water. I have no idea how it might react/interact with toxins/metals found in tap water.
I don't believe H2O2 is capable of eradicating the tomont stage. At least not at a concentration safe enough to treat fish. I believe only the trophont and free swimming stage can be successfully targeted.The real question is, at what concentration does hydrogen peroxide destroy the tomont stage. Now where can I get some fresh ich and velvet tomonts. The other challenge would be getting your hands on 35 or 50% peroxide. It’s regulated I believe.
Very likely flukes in the gills. Prazi causes flukes to spasm before dropping off. This uncomfortable sensation will cause fish to twitch, scratch, etc.I dosed another prazi treatment before trying to pull the fish out (stress ugh). The angel twitched and shook its head a good amount after the dose. I haven't seen this before in other fish I treated.
Irritation from the med perhaps? Lots of flukes?
I would perform H2O2 TTM WITHOUT mollies, but add them during the observation period afterwards. The reason is you don't want the mollies exposed to Ich, velvet, etc. even briefly during TTM. You want them nice & clean (with no built-up immunity to marine pathogens) during the observation period.sooooo if i use the H202 TTM on then all fish to QT WITH mollies this would be a best practice? then continue to watch for a few weeks after? i have 5 pairs of clown about to go into QT and make sure all is good before adding them to my breeding ststem i guess i could also add a few mollies to my breeding system now that i think about it, they can have their own safe section. Odds they can live out their lives in the breeding system?
If you are performing TTM with H2O2 that should take care of most issues. Sort of like when dosing Prazipro with TTM.Sorry i didnt type that out as i should have lol. What i ment to say was add the mollies to the nice clean QT tank (for observation) only after the TTM. would you do any other treatments along with it/or after it? Seems crazy to think that the H202 could take care of all the big issues haha, almost too simple!
I converted black mollies to saltwater a few months ago. I treated everyone that went through Hybrid TTM with AP Gencure and focus for internal issues. There’s a good write up from Humble linked in the beginning of this thread. If you haven’t done TTM before, make sure you have a few ammonia badges. I kept Prime in hand and proactively dosed on day two of each transfer.will do!! thank you so much!!!!!
It's also a good idea to treat mollies with food soaked General Cure (or Fenbendazole) before using them as test fish.
