    funny

    Just though i'd add a bit of a funny story.
    i bought 2 beautiful wild green discus a couple of years ago, they were already packed in bags so when i got them home i realised that they were really skinny and had worms, i proceeded to treat them with prazi, then fed them copious amounts of black worms to get them healthy again there are good and bad versions of everything in life.

    worm information

    tape worms are treated with prazi
    flagelettes are treated with metro
    round worms are treated with lavamocele

    In other words...if your fish has tape worms, Lavamocele will not cure your fish.

    you need to have a diagnosis of the worm type, to get the correct medication that will cure you fish. Can you give us more symptoms?

    Medication Confusion

    New to this excellent forum. I have a question in the treatment of gill flukes.

    I have a 1200 liter tank with plants, substrate, discus & many tetras. The tank has a large sump. I currently use Kusuri (monthly), water changes at 50% per week, and gravel syphoning. Fish eat very well, water is good, poo is black, however the discus flash more than I would like.

    My query regards the correct meds:
    Trichlorfon label notes ‘temp must be below 27 degrees’ - improbable in Qld this time of year - rules this out!
    Praziquantel label notes ‘cannot be used with tetras’ - rules this out!

    How do I get around this? Will reduced doses work, when & how often, and will this work better than Kusuri? Or am I being over the top?

    I have a few thousand dollars’ worth of fish and do not want to risk a catastrophe.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
