I took some tank water and poured it in a pitcher and added the aqua-zole to the pitcher and gave it a good stir. It didnt dissolve, it just stayed in the bottom of the pitcher? I let it sit for about 10 mins while stirring it every once in a while and it still didnt dissolve. So I just poured the pitcher back in the tank.

Is it supposed to dissolve right away when added to water??

Metronidazole isn't very soluble in high pH water. Even once it is dissolved in an aquarium, it will resolidify.

What are you treating for?

Hmm. I'm trying to figure out why adding a potassium salt would increase metro solubility...

The good news is that either aquazole or pure metro is likely still effective. I suspect SeaChem has adjusted the dosage to compensate for the 50% composition. Even if you see some stuff that isn't mixed, just use as directed.

I though maybe I got a bad or old batch. I bought 3 more tubes and they did the same thing. I contacted Seachem and they said its fine.

Hope it works and a few of my peacocks start eating by the end of the treatment. :?

Thanks for the help triscuit! :thumb:
