stslimited84: It's one of those medicines where if you've got Tropheus who were fish of exceptional size and strength, now bloated, they seem to be able to tolerate the Clout-ing better than the average "sick fish". I've seen where I've used Clout on a colony and Â½ the colony dropped dead within an hour.
I prefer Metronidazole by the 1 KG pail for $68 from a USA retailer (can give name in private messages) and I use 500 MG for 10 gallons of water, per day, with 25% water change. 1 KG container is 1000 grams, therefore 1000 grams = 2000 Ã- 500 mg doses, or treats 2000 Ã- 10 gallons (20,000 gallons) of water.
That and you'll find that many catfish, loaches, and other bottom dwellers will not survive Clout, period. Keep in mind your tankmates when you medicate.
When I asked Terry Fairfield at the January 2008 Aquarium Society of Winnipeg meeting whether he would "suggest" (don't want to use word recommend as that is not fair to him) using Metro or Clout, he replied that Clout was like a shotgun blast, where sure you're going to kill the pathogenic cells, but you're also going to kill a bunch of the good guys (i.e. the fish themselves) in the process. Not everyone will die, but some will. He likened Metronidazole to being more of a "sniper bullet" aimed at the pathogenic agents.
