Fenbendazol

I just ordered liquid Safe Guard Fenbendazole 125 ml at 10% strengths (goat dewormer). What is the correct mixture to kill off planaria? And does it really not kill snails?

My thinking has been invert-ed!

I am not sure too. You can try 0.005ml and see.

You want .1g of Fenbendazol per 10 gallons. I also use a liquid version that was made for Horses but it said on the bottle that there was 100g of Fendendazol in the 1 liter bottle so I knew that 1mL would give me my .1g. Look at your bottle and it should give the total amount of Fendendazol in your bottle.

The powder is 22.2% strength, so you'd use about twice as much as powder. So it would be .2 grams per 10 gallons

Thanks guys. That helps. I will double check the concentration and go from there. If it is 10% I will use .2 gram/2ml per 10 gal. It being liquid should make this very easy. I have med droppers from my cats that have those increments so this will be a breeze.

It kills Nerites...and it has a long residual effect I had to completely "nuke" my tank before I could keep them again.

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

30 gal planted, bamboo shrimp, dojo loaches, nerite snails
8 gal Fluval planted: true siamese algae eater, amano shrimp
8 gal Fluval brackish: Opae Ulae shrimp

Update: dosed the first treatment last night, woke up this morning and didn't see any little wiggly worms in tank, gave tank the 2nd treatment. Will do a 3rd treatment tomorrow, then might start decontaminating with water changes and carbon in a few days
