so i tried using fenbendezole (or however its spelled), but i doesed it for two days now, and wondering how often i should do it along with how much/ how often i should be changing the water. Another thing, what should i expect, i have crs and i don't want to harm them. SHould i expect the planaria to start appearing and dying or what? they're pretty scarce and only see them a few at a time, but i want to get rid of them all together. so how do i know if im successful as they're all in the substrate.

I've read it might be best to dose when the lights are out when planaria are quite active.
How much have you been dosing?

It takes time to work. I did two treatments in 6 days when I had them. Day 1 dose, day 3 dose. No problems. And yeah, it breaks down in light.
I dose 2 consecutive days full dose. Then let it sit for the next 2 large 30-50% water change and repeat. I am trying to get rid of this nasty parasite I got from a person importing. Eurithromyicn did nothing to it
