so I noticed one of my shrimp looked like they had "cream filling" so a bacterial infection so I removed it to a 1 gal tank I have cycled I'm going to be treating it with melafix, for the 7 day treatment should I  do a 3 day dose on my main tank to be safe?

If they really have a bacterial infection Melafix wont help.   There is a recent string (within the last week) by soothing shrimp about bacterial infections that you could look for. I forget which topic it was under.   Or some people have reported some limited luck with paragard

thank you  35ppt I've read that post bit confused on what to use so far its only the one shrimp all the rest still looking good I have him in his own 1 gal tank, oxytetracycline you have to get from a vet it looks like and is a dewormer that boost immunity?

 

melafix and paragard wont do much on my tank when i had a infection but Maracyn-Two worked and cured my shrimps!
