Anti-proto-zoan: This is for the treatment of fish protozoans like Hexamita and Spironucleus. Our Freshwater Fish Flake is now used to make up the base formula for this flake. Fish that have been infected by protozoans have generally lost weight and are in need of extra protein during their recovery period. It is most effective when combined with a heat treatment. Feed twice a day for six consecutive days. Feed no other food during this time.

Active ingredient: metro. Also contains beta glucan for immune boosting. Metro is water-soluble, so reading the Proper Feeding of Medi-cated Fish Food is a must. We recommend feeding our Prevent & Recover Flake for 1 week after the medicated feeding is discontinued. For ornamental fish use only. Keep a supply of medicated flakes in your fridge or freezer for those times when disease unexpectedly arises. Better safe than sorry!

Packed in a Black Foil zip-lock bag, which will keep your food fresher for a longer time.

I have a betta imbellis with hexamita. He is a very picky eater and I couldn’t get him to eat any of the medicated food I made, which caused treatment to be delayed. While he doesn’t eat a lot of this food, he does eat it! So it’s getting a 5 star rating from me! Hopefully his infection will start to get better now, hopefully before he is left with a crater in his head.

try it!

These medicated foods are effective because the fish eat it!

Metro Flakes

I've been buying the metro Flakes for a long time now and they have always worked well with my fish. My fish usually don't have any issues eating the flakes and often times I even use it as a preventative along with the prevent and recover. Great flakes. Wish they were available in a pellet form.


Very useful. Easy way to supply the anti protozoos to my fish

Worked when nothing else did

Camallanus worms took out half my 110g tank. I tried 4 products prior to this and had minimal luck. Fenbendazole mixed with their food, water, and a binder finally made a small dent; but this stuff completely knocked them out.
I did have to use it for longer than recommended- 10 days. Not sure if that was due to how bad the infestation was or if the worms in my tank are medication resistant. Either way it worked! My more severely infected rainbows, though very thin, are back to flashing colors and vigorously swimming around. I thought they were goners!!!
Thank you for saving my fish and my sanity! I will be buying all my fish food from you guys in the future!!!!

We are happy to hear that this worked. Thanks for sharing this because I've never known anyone to eradicate camallanus with metro. Nice to know that this is an option. If
the worms reappear within a few weeks, please let us know.
