Wish I could find something like this in Canada. Seems to be a vet prescribed thing over here.

would it be legal if I sent you a packet? petsMart requires a script where Petco sells it over the counter as safe guard.

Here I think it is a vet only thing, no LFS's sell it at all. Same with flea meds and lots of other stuff, they are regulated different in Canada just like you guys in the states can't import netlea soil or buy Kinder Egg's for your kids because of some stupid 1938 FDA law. lol.

Google Panacur C. It's fenbendazole marketed as a canine dewormer. Works great. I hope you can find a vendor that will ship it to you. There are about 10-15 vendors selling it online. Pretty cheap, too.

The same happened to my Ebi. I saw hydra on the 3rd day, so I dosed twice that day (morning and night) and the next. No ill effects to my shrimp and no more worms. I only did about a 10-20% water change too. I used Panacur C.

I was wondering that too, I have about 7.5gal of water in my cube tank and have some 2gram packs coming in somehow so I am going to be dosing Monday.

depends if you have 2gram or 1gram bits of safe-guard. For my 10G tank I would use 1/5 of the 1gram.

Diluting didn't work for me even after I did my best to grind it up with two spoons. I saw several of the shrimp eating the chunkier bits but they all seem healthy a week later >.>

I'm going to assume if you have a 5g you does 1/10 of 1 gram?
