Personally, I would use anything with copper in it. Similar to an ich treatment. Other than that, time (2-3 weeks).

Personally I woudn't use feeder for feeding your fish....just not good for them.

you should feed them fish fillet, talapia, raw shrimp, prawn, scallop, frozen food, etc...mix them up every week for daily meal...you will amaz how healthy your fish get.

shrimp fish fillets and white meat are great for those guys....ill probably grab a fat feeder, and quarenteen him for a month then toss him in...it should be a definate treat

I agree that feeders should not be fed to your piranhas very often, but the question was "What meds to use,"
so in answer to that, I wouldn't use any meds at all... I'd just quarantine them for a month or so.

Any meds that you put in the feeder's water will end up being absorbed by them, and then end up in your piranhas' stomach.

Just say "No" to chemicals.

You should have 2 tanks going for quarantining feeders if you want to do it right. 1 tank with formalin/malachite green concoction and the other tank for feeders who've been in that concoction for 2 weeks. Just a reminder that internal parasites are still a possibility.

I personally would also toss some PraziPro in the mix to knock out said parisites.

Yes Neons from a quality source are 2-3 bucks each. You can sometimes get them for 5 for 5 from petco but eveerytime I do that 4 of 5 die. so they wind up being 5 bucks each.
