The Myer's Loach is a nocturnal, eel-like fish which is native to slow moving rivers in Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. Pangio myersi is less commonly found in the home aquarium trade than Pangio kuhlii.
They are a peaceful, bottom-feeding fish which do well in a tank which provides a lot of rocks and wood which provide hiding spaces.
Copper works when dosed correctly
Copper sulfate is a heavy metal that when dosed correctly, kills Chilodonella. The idea is to kill the parasite and not harm the fish. Dosing is based on the alkalinity (carbonate hardness) of the water. Copper toxicity increases as carbonates decrease, so a lower dose is required in low-alkalinity water. Charts can be found online. You'll need a copper test kit and alkalinity test kit to dose in the best manner. Otherwise, follow the directions on the treatment label.Avoid chelated or complexed copper medications. They are not effective..
