Parasite Guard Tablets is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tetra is highly effective against fish lice (argulus) IF treatment is used correctly! I have been using Tetra Parasite Guard against an sudden infestation of fish lice in my 110 gal goldfish tank. I've never had a fish lice infestation before but apparently the Demekins I bought were raised in a pond and they brought it with them. I used Tetra Parasite Guard dosing with 48 hours and 25% water changes in between, and I already see great improvement. Three more weeks to go - and my goldfish are still eating and healthy. I would highly recommend this treatment for anchor worms and fish lice since it also combats secondary infections that an infestation can leave behind. Fish lice is a pain to get rid of and has the longest treatment period, but I'm very happy to have found Parasite Guard which will make it so much easier on me and my fish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Parasite Guard helped save my fish, Baby. Baby is family we wold have been devastated if she died. While away on vacation, my favorite gold fish ",Baby< became infested with ulcers from anchor worms. It was horrible to see her suffering. I tried eery thin on the market including tweezing the worms off of her. My husbsnd get Parasite GuardWE used Parasite Guard, and removed as many worms as we could with tweezers. The results where phenomenal. .prior to using Parasite guard, we had tried many of the market medications without results. Baby was near death prior to our using Parasite Guard. She is now swimming and eating. No visible worms and no ulcers. We only used one treatment. My question is should we continue with the recommended, second and third treatment due to anchor worms cycle? Lastly! Thank you for the product that saved Baby's life.life.

My goldfish gills is widely open and inside its red and she is grasping air at top of the thank please suggest treatment

Asked by: Priyanka
We would recommend a partial water change of 50%, and the addition of AquaSafe Plus and Tetra SafeStart Plus. She should improve if it is a water quality issue. Otherwise, you will need Parasite Guard. BREX

Will Parasite Guard harm Yellow Lab Cichlid fry? Thirty or so fry are in a hospital tank with mother and a Pombo Rocks that has not been eating and hides...began flashing a few days ago, with no obvious visual signs of parasites...suspect gill flukes.

Asked by: robertdblanc
It should be okay as long as the overall condition of the tank they are in is excellent. Fry can be a little sensitive and it is hard to maintain a tank with fry in it, so if in doubt at all, do a half dose first. BREX

Will this medicine harm my good bacteria in my aqarium tank

Asked by: Nass
All medicines do harm some beneficial bacteria. However, if the tank is in good condition, overall, you and your fish will not notice a change in the biological filter. That being said, it is a good idea to boost your biological filter after medicating, by adding SafeStart Plus. BREX

Can Tetra Parasite Guard be used Prophylacticly and in Quarantine Tank

Asked by: polB
It can definitely be used this way, and in a quarantine tank. Since most parasites have a 7-21 day cycle, do two to three treatments initially, a day apart each time. Wait a week, do one treatment, wait another week, do another treatment. This will catch not only any adults the fish may be carrying, but larvae and eggs that may manage to hatch during the first round. BREX

Can this medication be used in combination with Copper? Seachem Cupramine?

Asked by: Griff
No, medication should never be mixed at all, and we would not recommend using this with our competitor's product as the reaction may not be a good one. Treat with one, and if the fish do not show major improvement in 2-3 days, do a partial water change, run fresh carbon for a few hours, then start treatment with the other med per the instructions.
