Discus with gills flukes

Is Clout good for this problem ? (Gills Flukes on dicus)

Is it bad for plants ? and other fishes (like cories, pleco and Rams) ?
It's very hard to get some of the recomanded med here in Canada because of laws and stuff....

Do you think this medication could help me ?

Otherwise and other suggestions ?

I personally have never treated a gill fluke infested discus but the research and reading I have done suggest that Clout is a successful treatment and it shouldn't hurt your plants or other fish. I have heard that Clout may stain your aquarium silicone though.

By all means use the Clout if you suspect gill flukes.

I would like to know how you would suggest to use CLOUT if I have discus, pleco and cories.

I am now doing a daily treatment (1/2 the recommended dose) with a 50 % water change daily. I am going to be doing my 4th treatment tonight.

Is that ok ....

Should that be enough to get rid of the problem ? How long should I wait before using carbon to remove the medecine from the water ?
