Just about anything will work as bait. Just have to go trial and error til you find what works best. Maybe start with something that won't foul water too quickly. Then change things up if you need. And keep some long tweezers, a pipette or a turkey baster handy so you can get those little suckers manually when you see them.other than bloodworms as the bait, any other suggestions? would shrimp food work?thanks
Just a bit of FYI to anyone interested: I have used panacur c canine dewormer without issue in a Cherry tank, a Carbon Rili tank, and a Blue Dream tank. I did not lose shrimp at all. Two doses two days apart totally obliterated the villains. Two days after last dose I started using carbon to pull any residuals out of the tanks and I checked for ammonia several times over the course of about ten days.
You are absolutely correct about the snails. I neglected to mention that. It's probably due to my disdain for the little critters, so they rarely ever cross my radar screen. My bad. Snail :Lovers, please disregard my advice for planaria treatment.This isn't a good option for a tank with snails in it.... particularly fancy snails.
In fact, fenbendazole can make a tank inhabitable for snails for a minimum of 3-6 months if not longer.
