Plant safe meds?
I'm new to this list (been lurking for about a week now) and I have a
I am experiencing an outbreak of gill flukes in my planted aquarium (housing
six discus, two clown loaches, five tetras and several otos) and I want to
treat the entire tank (firstly because my q-tank is too small to house all
my discus at once, and secondly, because I figure the flukes will just recur
if I don't treat the tank as well).
I have treated some of my discus with Praziquantal but am unsure if this is
harmful to plants (I know it is harmful to my loaches). I went to my LFS
and they recommended Lifebearer (active ingredients are: 0.0-dimethyl,
1-hydroxy, 2-trichloromethyl phosphate) which they said won't harm the
loaches or the plants. But I'm not sure if I trust this information. Does
any one know whether either of these treatments is safe for use in a planted
tank to kill gill flukes and if not what can I use?
Thanks for your help :)
