Default "Clear" for Flowerhorns

This combination capsule medication is made in Southeast Asia fir injections into Flowerhorns to cure "white poop," whether it be bacterial, worms, or Hexamita. It definitely does not kill Hexamita, and since the languauge is in Thai (I think), I really don't know what's in it. Reported results are mixed.

I had an oscar years ago that wound up with "white poop" and had stopped eating. I used one level tablespoon of epsom salt in a pint of distilled water. Taking her out of the water and gently shooting the solution into her mouth with a full pipette. Three days it took and she started eating again, i soaked whatever i fed her with the epsom salt solution for another week. She lived 15 years.

That will work and have used Epsom salt for constipation. However, neither that nor "Clear" will kill Hexamita. There are people on Arofanatics and other Pacific Rim based websites using "Clear" whose manufacturers recommend injections straight into the live fish. It's frankly barbaric and few people know the hygiene and proper injection sites. To boot, the ingredients and structions are written in Thai.
