I’m sure fish stores in Markham along pacific malls have them they specialize in discus and flowerhorn. Petsmart have them too. It’ll be expensive to treat 180 gal go to Home Depot and get a bucket then add aeration. The joy of keeping discus....

If the fish are still feeding, bind metro to their food with Seachem Focus. You will use less and it will be more effective by ingestion than by passive absorption.

Otherwise, you can find Hikari Metro+ at BA or Petsmart. The small bottle (~100g) treats 100 gal.

Best of luck.

Have you seen this recently in stores? I thought metronidazole was on the list of meds that were no longer available in Canada except from a vet.

Honestly, I haven't paid attention. I bought some from BA Hamilton about a year ago.

A quick online search doesn't show it anymore, but Angelfins still has some Sera Flagellol listed if that helps.
