Anti worm medicine for Panaque+Hypans ?

Postby Zeno » Wed Apr 18, 2012 7:22 am

Do I have to traet my fish regulary (like twice a year) with an anti worm medicine like discus breeders do ?

Thanks, Zeno

Once in a while, I wouldn't say you need it twice a year, but if you introduce new fish (that you don't know have been treated), then it's probably a good idea.

I use Kusuri Wormer+ and Fluke Solve. These contain Flubendazole and Praziquantel respectively.

Also can use Eiho Prazi gold and Eiho metro cure.
Suitable for plecos and rays.
No effect on plants and beneficial bacteria too.
