SOME INFORMATION ON HOW EACH PRODUCT WORKS.
If it’s Aquatic Fish Wormers you need, you are in the right place, because we can offer both methods for worming tropical fish and discus. It is clear that many people prefer one product, and not the other, and vice versa. Everyone is different. So it doesn’t matter what side of the fence you are on, the main important thing is that your fish get the correct treatment that they need to fix them up. Basically each product works in a different way, both types anyway.
SO HOW DOES EACH PRODUCT WORK?
1) WORMER PLUS, a Flubendazole based product: Flubendazole 50mg/g is the base product of Wormer Plus, with naturally sourced calcium carbonate 0.01% added as a mixture. It does take longer to dissolve, but with tropical water temperatures, and plenty of aquarium aeration it does dissolve in a short time to be benifitual on a regular basis. The active ingredient Flubendazole is not so aggressive as some other wormers, and works by gently starving the parasite. Making wormer plus a good choice to use once a month to keep pest at bay. Wormer plus controls not only tape worms, but many other worms, flukes and pest as well. Wormer plus has been around for over 15 years, although it did change in 2007 when the new VMD laws came in and is now made by Kusuri.
2) Some other companies use praziquantel as the active ingredient in fluke and tapeworm treatments. It works in a different way to flubendazole by paralysing the parasites which then die. Using this product once a year to keep your fish free of flukes and tapeworms, or when new fish are introduced into your system.
