Praziquantel

This is a very effective antiparasitic that works equally well against external and internal parasites alike.  Like metronidazole, this is a very safe medication that works best when ingested, hence it is best administered by bioencapsulation -- i.e., gutloading live shrimp or injecting them with a solution of the medication.

When treating ectoparasites, it can be added directly to the water in the treatment tank (dose one time and leave in the water for 5-7 days).  However, in ordinary to do this, it must first be mixed with ethyl alcohol (e.g., vodka) in order to make it water soluble.
