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

Will parasite guard harm my clown loaches since they are scales fish?

Asked by: Clown Loach Lover
Unfortunately, yes, it will. There are very few meds that can be used with clown loaches. The best treatment for them is actually prevention by excellent maintenance of their environment. BREX

can i use tetra lifeguard and tetra parasite guard at the same time, or would using lifeguard be fine on its own? i rehomed a sick betta who has been suffering from ick and fin rot, and i just found out he has internal parasites while cleaning his tank.

Asked by: Stacy5689
No, you do not want to use the two medications at the same time. Ideally, do a good water change, and treat with Parasite Guard. Lifeguard is not as effective against internal parasites. Fin rot is often due to poor water quality and is the lesser concern of the two issues. Treat for it after he is free of parasites. BREX

My discus feces look like a transparent worm it is not a worm but y suspect it is intestinal parasites.... my other fish are fine... will it work and how do i use it... i have some plecos too (exotic ones) and i dont have a hospital tank...&nbsp;

Asked by: Ggonz
Hi Ggonz, If the fish has internal parasites, the string will be completely clear. If it is a mix of white and clear, you are fine. Ideally, you should make some medicated food to treat for internal parasites, as this is the most effective method. Parasite Guard will help, depending on the type of parasites, but I hesitate to recommend it since I don't know what other fish are in the tank. Do not use it with scaleless varieties. Plecos are armored, not scaleless, generally. BREX

I have a balloon blue ram, angel and dollar and want to confirm that this medication will be ok for all three. I was concerned about the dollar being scaleless. thank you&nbsp;

Asked by: Lilyasinrube
Hi Lilyasinrube, Silver dollars actually have very small scales. All three species that you are housing need to be in pairs or schools and are somewhat sensitive to medications and poor water quality, etc. The dollar is the hardiest out of all of them. I would recommend a partial water change and check of your parameters, and if you are not treating all of the fish in the tank, perhaps a hospital tank with just the sick fish. Otherwise, use a half dose to see how well they handle it initially. BREX

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
