If you have planaria in your tank, you will know what a pain they are living in your aquarium. If you're not sure what they look like, they're white (sometimes pink) flattish worms that tend to be about 10mm long and eat pretty much everything (apart from plants).
Planaria scavenge food and as a result are impossible to get rid of. They will also compete with shrimp, and if allowed will attack them or their eggs. If you feed your shrimp food, planaria will get there first which is what makes them so hard to get rid of. In the past it has always been difficult treating a shrimp tank with anything, particularly a wormer which gets rid of Planaria. Shrimp are very sensitive and as a result can easily be effected.
Genchem No Planaria eradicates planaria without effecting shrimp.
* A safe treatment without effecting shrimp or plants
* Contains Betal Nut Palm Extract
Remove carbon from your filter prior to dosage and dose according to packet instructions paying careful attention not to over dose. After 72 hours perform a 25% water change and use activate carbon in your filter for a few days.
Be sure to dose the correct amount.
This product has been around for over 10 years and is well tested - the only complaints which ever come are when customers don't know how to calculate the exact amount of water in their aquarium. This means taking into consideration:
OR ANYTHING ELSE which is in your aquarium.
Let's say your aquarium is 100L (when empty) - how much water do you really have when taking into account the above. 70L maybe? Maybe not (might be less or more but it's your responsibility to work this out). If you dose the correct amount it says then you won't have issues.
Do make sure you're aware of what effect it can have on snails so if you have nerite snails etc, rehome them whilst you're treating and don't put them back in until you are positive all the No Planaria is gone. One the treatment has run it's course use Seachem Purigen or Carbon to remove any traces. You have to consider all livestock.
