What is the best remedy for parasites? I think something got a hold of my Frontosa's as I lost one and the rest are acting kind of sluggish and not really eating. A few of them are even rubbing on the sand. I can't see anything on the outside of them though. Yesterday I checked the water and had 40ppm of nitrates so I did a 30% water change and plan to do another one tomorrow. Any thoughts?

Personally, I think the best option is what you are now doing. Tanganikans tend to be more sensitive to high nitrates than other cichlids that live in waters that vary in chemical composition over time.
