Fish parasite treatment.

Parasite Guard removes external and internal parasites from tropical fish including flukes, internal worms, lice, anchor worms, and flagellates such as hexamita or spironucleus associated with hole-in-the-head disesase. Also protects against secondary infections.
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.

Hi Will this product clear my tank of Wiggly Detritus Worms?

Asked by: m445520
First, "wiggly detritus worms" may or may not be the issue. You may have planaria, or you may have detritus worms. Here is a link to an excellent detailed article on how to tell the difference, and how to or whether to treat whichever type you happen to have in your tank. http://www.fish-as-pets.com/2007/11/planaria-detritus-internet-answers.html. If you do happen to have Planaria, then yes, this product should work. If you have detritus worms, then you need to improve your maintenance of the tank, reduce feeding or stocking levels, and so forth, with NO treatment added besides a water conditioner for the new water you add during water changes.BREX

Hi,The Parasite Guard is safe to use in tanks whit snails?How do I use this medecine to prevent parasites (preentive mode)Thanks a lot

Asked by: Thiago
Thank you for your interest in this product. Unfortunately, no, it is not safe with snails. In order to prevent parasites, you could potentially treat once a week. Parasites have a 7-21 day cycle so this should kill any that occur. Ideally, it is best to keep the tank in a balanced state with proper maintenance and stocking, and utilize a quarantine tank for all new fish, rather than treating a tank regularly with a medication.BREX

2 platys (10 g tank) water good , nitrite and ammonia 0 and nitrate 5. got 2 new guppies and 2 oto catfishes. 2 of them suddenly died and now my platys clamped fins, no appetite , at bottom, rubbing, no external marks , should i use PG ? Half dose oto?

Asked by: Sherbert
Sorry to hear you are having this issue! Your otos are not going to like the Parasite Guard, but it does sound like your tank has parasites. You can certainly try a half dose, and hope the otos will handle it. Dose every other day for 3 doses, do a partial water change 2 days after last dose, then wait 7 days to dose again.BREX

My aquarium of 32 liters is with anchor worm and I do not know how to dose the medicine could you help me?

Asked by: Thiago
Thank you for inquiring about this product! Remove the adult anchor worms from the fish. Take the carbon out of your filter system, but leave the filter running like normal, otherwise. You need to dose the tank every other day for three total doses over a period of 6 days. So dose, wait 48 hours, then dose again, wait 48 hours, and dose one last time. Wait 7 days then do one dose and only one dose, to help kill any larvae you may have missed the previous week. As anchor worm has a life cycle of three weeks, wait yet another week, and dose one time, again. The amount to use for each dose is 3/4 of a tablet each time.BREX

Can parasite guard be used in my main tank that includes all my fish or should I turn to a hospital tank and use it with only my suspected ill African Cichlid?

Asked by: Mac10
Parasite Guard can be used either way, but if the tank is a large one, it is less expensive to treat a hospital tank. It also means you will not be affecting the water quality of the tank and stressing healthy appearing fish unnecessarily. However, if the disease the one fish has tends to be contagious, it may be advantageous to treat the main tank and prevent the other fish from becoming ill. This is something that needs to be decided based on the overall health of the tank, the particular disease in question, and so forth.BREX

Does PG treat Malawi Bloat in African Cichlids?

Asked by: Mac10
There are various thoughts as to what causes Malawi bloat, but the prevalent belief is a protozoa, so assuming this is correct, then yes, PG should treat it. Of course, you also want to address any water quality, diet, and stress issues as well. Here is an excellent article on this disease: http://www.cichlid-forum.com/articles/malawi_bloat.php.BREX
