I was just wondering idly; there's no problem with my fish currently, but for safety measures when quarantining, I'd like to get something to make sure I don't introduce anything into my tanks. The quality of the fish I can get is a mystery.

Summing up: Fenbendazole is added to the food, good for intestinal parasites, such as castodes.

Flubendazole is for nematodes, and is broad-spectrum (?), it's a water column treatment.

What do you treat trematodes with?
