Praziquantel is a very effective and safe treatment for skin flukes, gill flukes (dactylogyrus) and tape worms. This product is pure and only a little amount is needed for effective treatment, therefore is very economic as well.
Add 1 level spoon (included) (0.33 g) for every 66 liter (17 US gal). The treatment should continue for 8 days. In case you need to make water changes you need to re-dose according to the amount of new water only.
1- For a more effective treatment raise the temperature to 28-29 C if your fish can handle it. This will accelerate the life cycle of Dactylogyrus to make sure all life stages of the parasite have reached adult- hood and are killed.
2- The addition of salt at the rate of 1g/L during the treatment will enhance it’s effectiveness by removing the mucus that could help shield the parasite from the medication.
