Dear James:

Dear James:

Yes, sir, that’s correct.

You need to use the Seachem Focus with both the antiparasitic medication (Seachem Metronidazole) and the broad-spectrum antibiotic (Seachem NeoPlex).

That’s because the Seachem Focus acts as a binding agent that attaches to the medication and then binds onto the frozen food (frozen Mysis, in this case). In addition to binding the medication to the frozen food, the Focus also masks the bitter taste of the medications, making them palatable to the seahorses.

In other words, without the Seachem Focus to act as a binding agent and to cover up the nasty taste of the meds, much of the medication would rinse off as soon as the Mysis was placed in the water and thus be wasted and do no good, and, worse yet, the seahorses would find me medicated Mysis to be distasteful and would refuse to eat it.

For these reasons, you need to use the Seachem Focus with both the Seachem Metronidazole and the Seachem NeoPlex, which does indeed mean that the Focus will be a component in both of the consecutive treatment regimens. That is necessary and perfectly safe, James.

Best of luck with the treatments, sir!
