I have been battling a planaria infestation in my tank for quite a while now and I am going the fenbendazole route to hopefully get rid of them. I have moved my nerite snails to another planted tank as I have been using Planaria Zero to treat the planaria infestation (without much progress!). From my understanding, fenbendazole will stay in the substrate for a while, and returning the nerite snails may not be an option. With fenbendazole still in the substrate, what are some alternatives to Nerite snails that will help control algae on the glass and hardscape? The Nerites were doing an amazing job in the tank with zero glass scraping/rock maintenance needed. The tank is starting to look a little neglected without them :frown2:
Current Tank set up
25 + Red Cherry/Fire Red shrimp
9 Gallon Planted tank
Thank you for the advice!
