Hey MFKers,

I have been researching about how to treat Hexamita or Spironucleus and I have learned that it is effective to treat with Metronidazole and Epsom Salts.
I plan to dose Metronidazole at 500 mg per 10 gallons for 7-10 days.

But I understand temperatures affect the speed of lifecycle of Hex or Spiro.
So when using Metronidazole, what temperature do I set my heater at? can I set the temperature at 28C? or am I better off at 30C?

Thanks!
