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

How many dosing would you recommend to effectively treat hexamita?

Asked by: Anderson
Typically, we recommend starting with three, one every other day. So you would dose for example, today (Thursday), Saturday, and Monday. Do a partial water change, just a small one, prior to each dose. Wait a week, and repeat. Keep your carbon out, but filter running during the entire dosing period, then run fresh carbon for that week in between. You may want to wait a second week, and repeat the does a third time as well, to be sure you get everything. This depends on how well your fish recover. BREX

Hi, I have a 10 gallon tank with 2 small goldfish, one appears to have a tape worm. I am treating the whole tank with the dissolving tablets. I have snails and have removed them to a separate tank. How long until it is safe to put snails back in?

Asked by: Jesse1234
Once you have completed the treatment, do a 30% water change and run fresh carbon in the filter for 12-24 hours. After this, you can put the snails back into the tank. BREX

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

Asked by: m445520
First, &quot;wiggly detritus worms&quot; 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. 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.

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.
