Anti-Fluke & Wormer is an easy to use, ready-mixed liquid formulation of flubendazole effective for treating intestinal worms and also for eradicating skin and gill fluke infestations.
Fish are susceptible to internal worms, especially Discus and Angel species. An obvious sign is when fish become very thin but still continue to feed. When your fish become lethargic, fins are clamped, thin-looking, gasping and showing signs of rubbing/irritation these are clear signs that your fish has an internal disease that requires treatment.
Body Flukes tend to be caused by undesirable environmental conditions—including poor water quality, overcrowding and/or stress by incompatible species—creates conditions that can lead to destructive outbreaks. Flukes are often present in aquariums but remain harmless under ideal conditions. Avoiding stressful conditions is a key to prevention, but once an outbreak occurs, prompt treatment is critical.
Increase aeration in the aquarium to maximum.
Shake the bottle thoroughly for at least 30 seconds.
Using the pipette provided, add the required dose.
If the water becomes cloudy, change 50% at a time until the cloudiness goes away.
The treatment can be repeated once a week up to 4 doses.
Nearly all the disease treatments available to fishkeepers have organic active ingredients (even those which claim to contain no chemicals). These organic chemicals are removed by adsorbent filter media such as carbon and zeolite, so remove these before adding a treatment to ensure the treatment is not removed before it has time to be effective. As a general rule of thumb, the filter mediums can be returned to the filter 7 days after the final dose of treatment has been added, but be sure to consult the instructions to see if the product requires more or less time to work.
It is also worth turning all UV systems off, increasing aeration and monitoring feeding closely don't overfeed if the fish are no wanting to eat as this can lead to further problems.
