    Also, will Levamisole harm Clown Loaches, Knife Fish and Bristlenose?

    Are there any updates as to whether these treatments might harm the bacteria in the filter?
    I will be pulling the carbon out of my canister filter tomorrow, which I suppose will weaken the bacteria for a bit. Should I hold off on adding the worm treatment after fidling ith the filters?

    Do both treatments make the Bristle Noses sick, or kill them. How about Royal whip tails and Oto,s.

    Nematodes

    you could try Flubendazol for your nematodes if you can get it. Must be a bad infestation if they are eating the bubs. Probably in the water supply
    Wild discus only please. Or bring back the old strains from the 80's.

    Hi squid, I wanted to use flubendazole but I didnt want to kill my bio as I have not set up my other tank.

    I used levamisole the day before yesterday and yesterday and now the floating infestation is down only 3-5 floating around that are 1cm, dont know why they are alive bt just dosed a little higher today, about 60% higher dose so hopeflly this will knock em out.

    The fish look ok, except for the male having a clear sign of hole in the head which appeared the other day, I might put him on metrodazole after I finnish treating tank for them nasty worms hanging around.

    There seems to be little ones on the tank floor that are alivein some white substance that keeps layering the floor.

    I am thinkng I will add carbon do a big water change tonight then tomorow then remove carbon and give seachems cupramine which has coper a go and see if that gives them a final blow. What do you think?

    One problem after another bloody hell

    Copper

    Copper will certainly kill most things - including fish so I would watch the tank carefully for a few hrs/days after treatment and have an emergency plan ready for rapid detox if it goes wrong.

    New discus keeper

    used levamisole after reading this forum on my two new melon discus today after them both sitting on the bottom of the tank not eating since I got them 4 days ago. Wow 4 hours later they are swimming around looking for and eating food not shy at all like completely different fish!! Thank you for leading the way!
