Fluke-Solve® contains 50% praziquantel, and its unique rapidly dissolving formulation means you can see it dispersing through the water as soon as you add it to your pond or tank. It successfully treats skin and gill flukes (Monogenean species), eye flukes (Diplostomum species) and intestinal tapeworms, even by immersion, and can be used in a wide range of fish including Koi Carp and Goldfish.
It is suitable for both freshwater and marine systems, including in the presence of salt when added as a therapeutic, and is even effective from 3°C. Fluke-Solve® is safe with biofilters and plants, as well as shrimp, snails and frogs, and can even be used to treat parasites on shrimp.
Flukes belong to the group of parasites known as Monogean trematodes. The most common kind affecting pet fish are the Dactylogyrus and Gyrodactylus species. Cestodes or tapeworms are internal parasites which affect a wide variety of fish species including Koi Carp, as well as aquarium fish such as discus.
• Easy to use – dissolves readily without having to use boiling water or solvents
• Safe for the fish and for other pond life & plants
• Contains 50% pure praziquantel
Comes in three sizes
• 10g which is sufficient for 2,500 litres (550 gallons)
• 50g which is suffient to treat 12,500 litres (2,750 gallons)
• 100g which is sufficient for 25,000 litres (5,500 gallons)
Instructions for use: Use at a rate of 4g powder per 1,000 litres (220 gallons) of pond or tank water. Simply take a clean container of the pond or tank water and add the required dosage of Fluke-Solve® to it, then stir. Immediately add this stock solution to the pond or tank, and then rinse out the container with the pond or tank water and add that as well. If necessary, a separate tank can be used to treat the fish for a treatment period of at least 24 hours.
Take care to turn off skimmers while it is in use since they will remove the praziquantel from the water, as will modern filtration systems which use carbon derivatives, or some drum filter technologies.
The praziquantel in Fluke-Solve® will persist in a pond or tank for at least 3 weeks, so in the case of some egg-laying flukes repeat the initial dose after 3 weeks to ensure the active ingredient is in the water long enough to kill any hatching fluke larvae and break the cycle of infection.
