The use of medicated foods is the only way to effectively treat internal disease. And under certain conditions using a single drug does not have the desired effect.
Our Anti-Parasite Duo Flake combines metronidazole with praziquantel. This combination has shown to be more effective than using each medication on its own. Metronidazole is an anti-protozoan medication and praziquantel is a broad spectrum deworming medication. This combination will treat a wide variety of parasites in the gut.
Shown to treat hexamita, Malawi bloat, body slime, chilodonella, freshwater ich, epistylis, schistosoma, liver flukes, gill flukes, flat worms, tape worms and turbellarians.
Treatment: Begin with a water change of 25% or greater. Then feed 1-2 times a day for 7-10 days.
May be repeated if necessary. Can also use concurrently with Epsom Salt and elevated heat (86F/30C or higher) to clear out the gut more efficiently.
Medicated flakes are made to order to ensure medication does not age sitting on our shelves and lose potency.
