Does novalsan kill coccida?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

My bd has a high count of coccida[ I took a smaple in after she stopped eating]. I read here that ammonia works well after you clean up the poop but I am worried about the fumes so do you think Novalsan would do the trick too?

I honestly don't know if novalsan kills coccidia but I bleached my tank, dried it out, aired it out, and then I spot cleaned the messes with rubbing alchol as the fumes were gone in the time it takes to soak Myah. I'll let you know if it worked as soon as I know. Wish you well. Coccidia just plain sucks.

I am treating her for coccida and she is still in the tank. I wanted to know what I can clean up her poop with that won't put off lots of fumes.

The wonderful folks at Beautiful Dragons have a page on their website listing which cleaners kill what stuff: http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Disinfectants.html. According to the site, Novalsan does NOT kill coccidia, unfortunately.

Hello,

No, unfortunately novalsan does not kill coccidia. The most effective way to kill it is through steaming, which is a bit time consuming but does help out a lot.
How are things coming along with cleaning the tank?

I haven't gotten the stuff from Cheryl yet.But
*I have been taking out sunshine/charlotte and having to use ammonia. I don't like to expose her to the fumes so she gets some out of the tank time. She doesn't mind.
I like the name Sunshine and decided on that but last week we went to a meeting and went thru a town called Charlotte. All of the sudden my son said what about naming your bd charlotte. I instantly fell in love with the name and I wnat to change her name to that but my 4 yr old son wants to keep it sunshine so we are doing name battling here. :banghead:

Whenever I was a child and the whole family couldn't agree on what to name a new pet - the pet would be given both a first and middle name as a compromise. So tell your 4-year-old that your beardie's name is Charlotte Sunshine <insert "last name" here> lol... my family even ended up with goldfish who had full proper names hahaha, good luck! :D
