When we talk of Deworming we think of tapeworms , but you will find lot of other internal parasites in discus . So Deworming we can say to eliminate all internal Parasites , Tapeworm is one of it . these worms are always present in the Stomach / intestine of the discus , and are not that harmful . But when the water quality drops down or if you are feeding spoiled food to discus , or your discus is under stress due to any other reason , these worms becomes dominates and their populations increases and when their populations increases the problem to your discus starts . They attack the internal system of the discus and sucks the nutrients of the host , your discus may be eating like a pig but these internal parasites sucks all the nutrients and make your discus thine .
Albendazole , Mabendazole , Pariziquintel , Pumpkin seeds , & Garlic is used to eliminate these internal worms .
