Kusuri Fluke S is a 50% Praziquantel based medication used to eradicate Gill Flukes, Body Flukes and Tape Worms. This treatment is safe to use without destroying the bacteria in the filter and can be used at any temperature. While dosing with Fluke S you can continue to feed. This product is designed as a one off treatment, but may require a second dose after 7 days in heavy infestation. Alternatively you can use Kusuri Fluke M after 7 days. If the mucus layer is excessive, we advise dosing with Chloramine T at 15g per 1000 gallons, 12 hours before using Fluke S, this will assist in reducing the mucus membrane where body flukes can sometimes get trapped. For use with all cold water ornamental fish. Please ensure that you read, understand and follow, all Health and Safety guidelines. Please do not eat, drink or smoke whilst handling chemicals. Wear disposable vinyl or latex gloves and appropriate eye protection.
Use 4g per 1,000 litres (220 gallons) of pond or tank water. Ensure the full dose is added. DO NOT OVERDOSE. Over dosing can cause fish fatalities.
For best results use above 15°C.
Switch UV steriliser, carbon filter and protein skimmer off until treatment is complete for a minimum of three days. Measure the correct dose and dissolve in a container with hot water. Allow the hot mixture to cool, continue to mix while adding slowly to the return of the pond over a one hour period. This is designed as a one off treatment but with heavy infestations treat with Kusuri Fluke M after seven days. We recommend a scrape and micro- scope identification prior to a second application.
