Thought I'd do a bit of research on it before using, the reviews are, well, mixed to say the least. Does anyone have any experience of using this product. The product information/reviews supplied here is better than the likes of amazon.
Unfortunately dont have experience with medications using that ingredient..
I assume youve already conducted a basic google search on it, but doesnt say much about it other than aquariumwiki which states;
"Phenoxyethanol is often used as a fish sedative or anaesthetic but also has antibacterial and fungicide properties."
It seems like it should help, at least its not one of those medications that contains mostly hopes and prayers and a bit of essential oil or something.
Really sorry that I cant be of more help
Are you on the 'Tropical Fish Keeping UK' facebook group? There's experienced people on there running it and moderators who will be able to help. I recall that they advise against using that as the active ingredient is too harsh. Instead, Meth Blue baths in a tub and water changes
many thanks both @Hufsa@jamiepearson wish me luck.........he's like a torpedo. Failing that, I'll try @Wookii fish trap, though as I'm trying to catch an Otto and intice it in there with a piece of pepper or something, I suspect I'll end up with 200 shrimp, 100 snails and zero otto. I'll report back.
Ive just done a search on that FB page to see if I can help more. if it turns blue after a Meth Blue bath (in a tub, not the tank, it would destroy your filter) then it is fungus so use Esha 2000. If it's bacteria (unlikely, it doesnt appear to be, it does look like fungus) then Myxazin. But plenty of water changes either way
