    I would give the sick one 1/2 a pill twice a day. When are you due to get your pills?

    That's fine, but they need Safeguard for the cecal worm. ~1 cc for the sick one.

    Is the sick one drinking and eating? If not, I strongly suggest that you learn how to tube feed.

    This should be of help.

    The above information suggests that the Safeguard (Fenbendazole) will treat the protozoa making the fish zole unnecessary.

    I gave 2/10 cc of the ivermectin . I found the dosage on line not sure if it's right though.
