caylentor Posted July 2, 2022 Share Posted July 2, 2022 Hello! Unfortunately it's me again. Two of my white cloud mountain minnows are displaying symptoms consistent with the parasite infection we had last year. We've tried levamisole previously unsuccessfully so on the vet's recommendation I've got some flubendazole (we tried fenbendazole in food without much luck either). This is what we're using: https://www.fishkeeper.co.uk/aquacare-anti-fluke-wormer-20ml My concern is that the medicine is dangerous to the shrimp, and we have about 13 Amano Shrimp living in the aquarium. I was going to try to catch them and move them to a temporary tank, and then move them back after we'd done a water change and added carbon. My questions are: is this a sensible plan? how long should we leave the flubendazole in? Would 24 hours suffice? is it safe to move the shrimp back after 24 hours, a ~50% water change and adding carbon? Thanks in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
