Let me get home tonite and see what the ingredients are and see if it`s the same James is talking about. I believe if he`s talking about treating a QT with that stuff in it you`ll be better and quicker off. Let`s see what James says about it. I`ve never had to deal with them before.

That sounds like intestinal flagellates.
James are you talking about Flubendazol and acetone (for dissolving the Flubendazol), can be used to kill both the worms and their eggs (laying on the substrate). The book I am looking at does not give any dosages.

*Dosages per E. Noga

Praziquantel; Adult Cestode (tapeworms) and Monogeneans
Bath: 10-15mg/L for 2hr bath or 2mg/L once for 24hrs.
Oral: 50mg/kg of food.

mg/kg = of body weight

Baths can be performed x3/wk until noticeable signs of health are apparent. I personally prefer 24hr extended periods and redose inbetween 50% water changes. Redose = 1/2 administered dose in accordance to a 50% water change.

Fenbendazole (Panacur); Nematodes
Bath: 2mg/l once/3wks.
Oral: 25mg/kg per 3 day period and redose in 2wks.

mg/kg = of body weight

I find oral is easiest using brine shrimp since the brine will ingest (noticeable white tract aferwards) and all fish feed upon them.


I do not recommend already prepared medicated foods just because we either do not know the % of medication compared to added "flavor enhancing" ingredient and/or preference of exact dosing.

Here's some links to products:

Have heard good things from PraziPro:
