I think i'm going to try this with my Burundi, i bought them from several different people and who knows what they went through before i got them. My question is, if I mix a batch of it up, will it last long enough to do the 5 days or should i mix fresh daily? I have never used Epsom before, but if it works the little extra time is WELL worth it!

Chris,

That's a good question. My impression was that you mix a batch up and use it for the 5 days. I wouldn't think the salt would go bad. Just need to get it dried into the pellet so they get it into the stomach.

I know RD maintains his private message inbox on MFK (he was very gracious with advice to me recently). I haven't tried to PM him from this site. Would you reach out to him and clarify that for us?

Thanks,
Russ

I definitely will as soon as I get home this evening. I would also like to know if this would be a good thing to do on other types of fish such as my Peacocks. I'll let you know.

FWIW I mixed the batch and have been using it during my current treatment, but I am treating the pellets right before I feed them. I just let them sit about five minutes but the one batch of "epsom water" is fine for the whole five days.

Awesome thanks for the answer! I was reading over his post on MFK before I asked him..... Didn't want to ask if had been answered already and sound like a DA. He says that it should also be safe on other cichlids as well (I did get that far). Thanks again!!
