my fish that were exposed to callamanus worms - big, giant worms - are all doing okay about a week plus into separate hospital tanks. they like the food and eat it quickly. except for my betta - I have to mash it with his usual pellets and use a shrimp tube to put it in a little dish - otherwise, it is just pushed all over the bottom of the tank!
my one issue is that when I inquired about being shrimp safe, I got a reply that said 'i don't know about shrimp'. which is really not acceptable. the shrimp are now in their own dedicated tank, so a non-issue at the moment. but if a manufacturer of medication doesn't know a general answer like that, well, I think it's lazy. i can't be the only person with a community tank with shrimp who would want to know the answer to that question. fortunately at 3 ounces, I think I have a lifetime supply of flakes!
For 3 day treatment period for worms I feed the Fen-ben-DA'-Zole Flakes all day long until they have full stomachs since the guppies gobble it up real fast all day long! I add large amounts of garlic powder to all the flake and decap brine shrimp cyst foods : my guppies are accustomed to garlic powder in their food! I purchased a whole pound of this product. This really destroys the internal parasitic worms. When acclimating new guppies in quarantine tank this is a good preventative measure! This is what I do: this is what works for me! Food came fast in the mail. Thanks so very much for your literature as well: your excellent instructions can be modified : the product is excellent and won't harm the fish....but IT WILL HARM THE WORMS AND DESTROY THEM WITHIN A FEW DAYS!
I do not keep live plants or snails in my tanks: these are full of parasitic worms and other parasites. Live plants harbor parasites and dangerous protozoa. I had to learn this lesson the hard way( not to use them in my tanks( but the Fen-ben-da-zole Flakes do a good job eradicating the dangerous organisms!
Useful! Angels love to eat it
seemed to work lost a ew more angels but they were probably too far gone nice size flake and fish enjoy fast shipping
