Fluke treatment for fry

Recommended Posts

:hi

I was just wondering - at what age should fry have their first fluke treatment? Also, am I right in thinking flubendazole is used often as an alternative to Praziquantel?

Thank you!

Congratulations on fry spawn.I am so glad that you posted as when I read this I had a look over at my  telescope buttery fly and HO HO they  have also decided to throw a few eggs tonight. And so I can tell you how I treat mine. with success.

!. Prespawn parents and spawn tank are treated  for fluke ,etc.

2. from first days fry are treated for fluke.

Praziquentel is my preferred chemical treatment but there are several other ways. I have not yet had the pleasure to test the flubendazole on fry.

I prazied my fry at one week, with an airstone running but not on "full" power.  I've not used flubenzadole either . . .  :idont

I think most people wait a week or two.  I didn't realize that I had fry in my tank, and I think that they hatched in prazi water.  They're still with me, 20ish months later, so it can't be too harmful! :)

Thanks Lisa! I think Fluke Solve is Prazi... maybe I could get that?  :hmm

Mine are two weeks tomorrow (today now, I need to get to bed  :huh: ) Hopefully flubendazole is ok to use. I saw someone mention it as an alternative on the forum and I can't remember who.  :hummm
