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.

Should I feed my fish during Parasite Guard treatment?

Asked by: joselito
Yes, of course. If they are well enough to eat, they should be fed. If they are refusing food, then no, don't offer it till they fill better.BREX

Does this Tetra Parasite Guard breaks down completely on its own after the last dose, or running carbon to remove it is essential? Can I also feed food soaked in kanamycin while treating with this medicine in the water column. 

Asked by: gjmelb
It is definitely recommended to do a partial water change, although fresh carbon is not necessarily critical. Medications can affect the water quality, therefore, a water change should be performed.Yes, you can feed the food at the same time. Just do so in small portions in case of any kanamycin leaching into water.BREX

i found 2 parasites on my new swordtail (40 gal) i removed them and added salt to tank .005 salinity also i have 3 glass cats should i use this product as a safety measure or wait and see if anchor worm comes back ?

Asked by: FIERCEWOLF
If you found anchor worms on the fish, then you have larvae in the tank and should probably treat it. The glass cats are not going to do too well with the medication or salt. You may want to separate them out for a couple of weeks, if possible. If that is not possible, then I would hold off on treating and just observe the fish for now.BREX

Have a Gourami that is pooping clear white and has not had a great appetite. He does still eat though. Can you give detailed step by step instructions on treatment please? Ty

Asked by: Butterfly1983
If the poop is all clear, he has parasites, if it is a combination of clear and white, that is just urea. If this is a dwarf gourami, they are wild caught and tend to bring a virus in with them. There is no cure for this virus. They typically live 2-3 months before succumbing to it, without a lot of symptoms besides lack of appetite. You could try Parasite Guard, however, just in case it is a parasitic issue, which would be the next most likely possibility.BREX

After the third treatment, at 2 day intervals, when should I do a water change?

Asked by: trinifishkeeper
You should be doing a small one prior to each treatment. Wait two more days after your last treatment to do the last partial water change.BREX

Is it recommended to use Parasite Guard and Lifeguard at the same time, or one and then the other?  

Asked by: nemawei
No. You would treat with one or the other, then take 24 hours off, do a partial water change and run fresh carbon during this time, then start treatment with the next medication, per instructions.BREX
