 Dear  friends
 
 I  want  to  know  treatment  for  intestinal  worms  in  Discus.  All  my  discus  are  eating  well.  but  some  of  them  remained  flat  (  not  fat  enough  ).  I  suspect  them  to  be  infected  by  intestinal  worms.  How  to  get  rid  off  these  worms  ?
 
 Can  I  use  Prazi+Flubendazole  tabs  ?  I  want  to  add  it  in  water  colum  rather  than  in  food.  Is  flubendazole  safe  to  use  in  aquariums  ?  Is  it  safe  for  filter  ?
 
 In  regular  deworming  I  use  Metro  IV.  (  I  do  not  inject.  Just  add  to  water  )
 Can  it  take  care  of  intestinal  worms  ?  
 
 My  tank  is  around  200  Ltrs.  It  is  home  for  12  discus  around  4  inch  size.  I  feed  them  BHM  3  times  a  day  +  occational  live  blood  worms  or  tubiflex  worms  after  a  lot  of  washing  and  treating  with  methilineblue.
 
 Regards

 Hi  Mr  India  !  Plozin  is  good  for  your  purpose  It  is  a  vet  medication  and  has  been  covered  here.
 
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=2474&highlight=plozin
 
 It  contains:
 
   Praziquantel  USP    50  mg  
 Pyrantel  pamoate  USP    144  mg  
 Fenbendazole  BP  (Vet)  500  mg
 
 It  is  safe.  Filter  bacteria  are  not  effected  by  anti-helminthics.  I  have  used  it  in  a  tank  with  Piranha,  Silver  Dollar  ,  Pleco,etc  and  had  no  casualities.
 
 Regards
 Gopi

 Thnks  Gopi
 
 As  per  your  suggession  I  will  try  PLOZIN.  But  I  am  little  apprihensive  about  Flubendezol  as  there  are  many  horor  stories  on  different  discus  forums  regarding  it's  side  effects.
 
 My  tank  is  around  200  ltrs  and  I  have  to  use  2  tabs.  correct  ?  Is  there  any  second  dose  or  only  a  single  dose  is  enough.
 
 
 As  you  already  mentioned  this  drug  is  not  effective  against  tapeworms,  what  to  do  about  it  in  case  I  have  infection  ?
 Regards

 Hi,  It  is  effective  against  Tapeworms.  It  is  not  effective  against  Anchor  Worm  which  are  crustecean  copepods.  So  if  you  suspect  that  your  fish  are  infected  with  tapeworm  or  internal  helminths  Plozin  will  be  effective.  The  dose  would  be  1  TAB  PLOZIN  per  100  L  of  water  .
 Re:  the  side  effect  of  Fenbendazole  on  discus(  tail  standing)  there  is  a  great  discussion  here  :  (You  might  have  to  register  there)

 Hi  Yogoranda
 
 Any  specific  reason  why  not  to  feed  TW  ?  I  clean  it  with  lot  of  water  and  also  disinfect  with  methiline  blue.  I  feed  it  minimum  after  48  hours  after  disinfected.  
 
 Regards
