    I spose what Im saying a lot of people say treat with Metro for certain fish behaviour, Ive taken this advice and loss fish with my Fry they had long white poos not eating, simular signs of Hex. I used Levamisole and quered them
    If we only had access to a Microscope and knew what to look for it would be easier

    Never had any problems with levamisole and plants, but it's better to treat in a hospital tank, if you can.
    Thirty-five years keeping and breeding discus, and I'm still learning :P

    I agree with Merrilyn, never had any problems with levamisole and plants. I've used it in several fully planted tanks with no problems.

    Itís that time of year to worm my precious fish!

    None of my fish show any signs of intestinal worms, will treat anyhow.

    I gave the fish a %60 water change, cleaned the glass, sponge filters and taken out their spawning pots.

    I will moniter and take pictures over the next few days.

    I have put up a few photo's of the product to use and how simple and safe it is to administer!

    I did a water change 24 hours after treatment, and not one little crippy crawly to be found!

    in a stupid sort of way it would have been nice to see a dead worm or 2?

    i guess they did not have worms.....

    Ben how often do you worm your Fish, and do you treat them for anything else - if so, what with?.

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

    Regards,

    How about a product called Worm-Enda? is this ok to use at the dosages rate metioned above?

    the bottle states 10mg/ml Levamisole Hydrochloride (Equivalent to 8.48mg/ml Levamisole.
