I thought I would give information to people in UK to use for Qarantineing meds Esha gdex active ingredient is praziquantel for external parasites and Esha 2000 treats mild  external bacterial infections and fungal treatment it recommends doubling the dose if you GH is below 4 when treating with Esha 2000 Esha exit for ich can be used together

Hey,

i am really pleased to see this information here for UK members. It took me a while to figure out the UK trio equivalent but i have been using exactly what you posted for a few months now. Esha products are gentle enough to use with betta fish which is an added bonus.

If you come across stubborn ick & Esha Exit doesn’t resolve it try waterlife protozin.

I am so lucky to have a daughter in the US who can send me fish meds as well. She sends me kanaplex, maracyn & maracyn 2. All a lot cheaper than a chat with a wet vet.

The eSHa2000 and Exit have different boxes here in the Netherlands, but it is easy to see the name of the product on the box.

I've used them together when quarantining my Japanese rice fish a few weeks ago without any problems. (the manual also states that it is perfectly safe). If this is the 'best' combination or not, no idea. It might be useful to have like an 'experiences' topic on these, for reference and to combine 'research'.

Thanks for this @Colu

Not sure if this is a dumb question but does 'internal parasites' include intestinal worms? As in roundworms and tape/flatworms etc - to me it sounds as if they should be included but then when googling medicines most people refer to different medicines for their treatment so I'm not sure?

If they are not included, what could be used for deworming in the UK as part of quarantining?

I went out and got me some Esha 2000 and Esha exit yesterday 🙂 haven't managed to find the others yet

Thanks so Esha 2000, exit, ndx and gdex between the four of them basically covers everything? 

What about internal bacteria/infections?

Yes between them you can treat most common diseases Esha 2000 does treat mild external Bacterial infection I used it for fungal treatment more than a bacterial treatment  if it something more serious such as an internal bacterial infection you need something like Sera baktopur direct tables or kanaplex or maracyn2 API furan2 maracyn
