What is Flubenol 15 designed to do?
Flubenol 15 is unique and specifically designed and developed for aquatic use and approved by the Vetinary Medical Directorate under the small animals exemption scheme to be sold over the counter for public sale.
This Medicine will kill skin flukes, gill flukes, camallanus worms, tapeworms, anchor worms and other helminthics commonly found in tropical and coldwater fish. It has also been used successfully with 'skinny disease' in clown loaches.
Why Flubenol 15 and not any other Flubenol or wormer?
The Flubenol produced for pigs, sheep and cattle is not strong enough to prevent parasite resistance in fish, as they are absorbing it through their gills. Flubenol 15% substance is the weakest level that can be used to prevent the start of parasite super strains, that's why it is the only wormer allowed for fish use. At the wrong strength/concentration of use, parasites quickly build up a resistance to wormers.
The wormers sold for cattle/pigs/horses are not water soluble, and the recommended solvents (DMSO and acetone) are either dangerous or not suitable. Most of us know that acetone is the base for nail varnish remover, would you add that to your tank? DMSO works by allowing everything in your tank to pass into the fish as if it were being injected, so if you have the slightest trace of ammonia/nitrite in your tank, your fish will die, if there are any traces of chemicals that are reasonably harmless whilst outside the fish (medicines like formalin, malachite, acriflavin), these will also enter your fish and could kill it

Mix powder with some water from the aquarium in a jug and pour the contents into your tank. No harm will come to your fish if they swim into the mixture. If possible do not water change for 24 hours after use.
WARNING, this powder will kill snails, if there is a large population of snails in your tank, toxic conditions may be triggered by the pollution caused by the death of the snails.
