Killing worms, planeria and hydra
Parasitic worms can attach to a shrimp’s nose and burrow into their brain. I dosed this shrimp with Panacur. It is also used to kill hydra and planeria.
Panacur – 222mg/gm solution of fenbendazole.
A 1g sachet, divided into 20 portions for a dose. A portion is therefor 0.05 g of the powder per 5 US gallon tank is mixed with tank water. I estimated the dose by using a 0.05g measuring spoon for one dose in my 25 l tank.
Stir and mix well as its not very soluble.
I dosed a portion into the tank every every day for 2 days.
All shrimp plus newborns and my Nerite survived.
So far, no more worms!
