I also need to nuke the tank with fenbendazole to kill off flatworms. Will this product kill off other species of invertebrates?
I have nerite snails and some surviving mawala shrimps in the tank. I'm not exactly sure what caused the flatworms. I noticed them shortly after I had two major changes. I had both a huge shrimp die off (probably caused by bad water parameters, and then not decreasing the rations severely enough afterwards). Also at the roughly the same time I introduced nerite snails that had been transitioned tanks from a intermediate tank that had not shown any flatworms for months, but contained nerites originating from an invested tank (that was decontaminated once all the intended livestock was moved to quarantine tanks)
I really don't want to kill off the poor surviving shrimps if I can spare them, but I gotta get rid of these things. I'd prefer the nerites to also get the treatment (and survive!) since I did notice the flatworms within a week of their introduction to the tank, but it looks like they might have to get quarantined
I have an equine paste that is also 10% strength
*update* Dosed the 5 gal tank with approximately half a gram of the paste solution dissolved in water, I'm just using a postal scale that I weigh my birds on so it's not that sensitive. As far as I can estimate, I measured out about a gram of the paste, dissolved it in a cup of water, and poured half in, saving the second half for tomorrow.
Nerites are doing their water adjustment changeover right now, they're going into a glass bowl with some salt and some marimo moss balls to knock around
