So, I'm guessing there are some kind of internal parasites or similar going on. What might be best to treat with (in the UK) and how do I dose for them?
Another alternative is to look into wormers for dogs or cats. Read the ingredients and get recipes on line. Fenbendazole is one active ingredient. Piperazine is another active ingredient, often sold as wormer for puppies.
You will have to do the research to figure out how to use these.
If all these options are available through a veterinarian only, then you will have to find a vet who understands fish.
Happy fish keeping!
If you use one of the products marketed for other animals (dog/cat wormer) they you will have to do the research about customized dosing.
Happy fish keeping!
I think this is one of the best advises I ever read regarding the treatment of illnesses. And so obvious, I'm almost ashamed I did not think of it myselfLoachloach wrote:The weight gain after fish has had worms is slow but you should be able to start noticing some filling out soon enough.

in other words: Thank You
Thanks for the product recommendation. I also suspect two of my loaches have parasites because they are not putting on weight since I bought them despite me feeding them regularly. I'll take pictures before giving them the dewormer and see the weight gain.Loachloach wrote:In the UK get Kusuri wormer plus. Its a flubendazole based treatment, safe to use with any fish, sensitive fish including, and fry older than one week but will kill inverts. It is broad spectrum so it will cover worms and parasites of many kinds. You need to dose twice 4 days apart.
