The link to Chefkeiths dosage calculator in the article about Levamisole seems to be broken or not valid. Does anyone know where, or if, it is located somewhere else?
How old is the Levamisole HCL? In the USA, Levamisole has been off the market for over a year, while it's shelf life is only 1-2 years. Anything we have over here is old stock and isn't good anymore or is less effective. The calculator I had was for new stock, where 2 ppm was the recommended dosage. I'm not sure what the dosage would be for older stock and I wouldn't want to chance it either (which is why I don't want my levamisole calculator being used). I think we're all better off finding a different medication where it's surplus is easy to find. I'm getting good results with fenbendazole, which is found in most pet shops. It's used for dogs/cats and has brand names such as Panacur and Safe-Guard. My loaches have had a growth spurt since I starting using some de-worm flake food with fenbendazole.
Here's a few links on how to prepare fenbendazole-

There are a few places that sell the dewormer flake online-

In addition to regular feedings, I fed my fish the dewormer flake Monday thru Friday once per day for 2 weeks. Skipped 2 weeks and I'm now repeating the treatment for 2 more weeks.
I also bought some of the Meat Love's flakes and they want eat it either. Do you have any suggestions I might try?
