Hey guys,

I've had an issue with gill flukes in one of my tanks and after numerous goes at eliminating it, i've had no luck.

Well by no luck i mean the fish get better for a few weeks and then bang they are doing the same stuff again,

clamping fins, flashing against the bottom.

I want to know whats the best course of action here,

Do i move all the fish into a new q tank and treat them in there and while they are in quarantine strip the tank down and start again fresh,

or is the something I can treat the tank with that will kill the parasite and its eggs and treat the fish at thte same time.

BTW - i have been treating the whole tank with sterzyn, it seems to kill the parasite but not the eggs

Get some pp (kondys) approx 25g to 5L distilled/tap water, from that solution use 25mL/200L for long bath (2-3 days) or 50mL/200 L for short bath (30 mins).

Add aquarium salt at 4g/L.

Or Cu - use copper sulphate crystals use 4g to 1L distilled water, from that solution use 1-2mL/100 for soft water and 2-4mL/100L for hard water.

Seachem cupramine is also effective.

Cheers

Stace

Hydrogen peroxide will neutralize pp and so does prime apparently.

You can get kondys and peroxide at the chemist.

Distilled water from woollies

Copper sulphate crystals from petstock (caboolture anyways)
