Description

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.

Features:
* A safe treatment without effecting shrimp or plants
* Biodegradable
* 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:


* Rocks
* Substrate
* Wood
* Gravel
* Decor
* Filters

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.

Had a small Planaria outbreak in my 2 nano shrimp tanks, dosed the tanks, not seen any Planaria since and no visible effects to the shrimp even the tiny little new-borns. Highly recommended

I am new to shrimp keeping, and i found a few planaria worms in my aquarium, i had read earlier when i was planning to keep shrimps that planaria can kill shrimps, and that "NO PLANARIA" treatment is the answer, so i gave it a try, and i have not found one in my tank since, so in my eyes "NO PLANARIA" is the answer, i swear by it.

 
by ALFRED P.
Excellent product, it destroyed all the planaria in my tank, i have searched over and over and not one to be found.

 
by TJ B.
Brilliant product. Our shrimp tank was suffering from a massive planaria boom. Most products are toxic to shrimp so had no idea what to do, tried this as a last ditch attempt to clear them out, not having much faith in this product to be honest. Thankfully I was wrong to be so sceptical, 3 days of treatment and not a planaria in sight and no losses to our shrimp colony at all.

 
by Zach E.
Amazing product, no hyrdas in sight after first dose with no adverse effects to guppies or cherry shrimp.

Is this product safe to use on a ramshorn snail tank?

 
Staff

It should be fine - shrimp are more sensitive then snails and it's OK for them. If in doubt, start with a half dose and monitor.


 
Guest
Ive read somewhere that this product can be used to eradicate freshwater limpets which have hitched a ride into my tank. Have you had any experience of this being used for this purpose? Sam

 
Staff

Hi Sam

Not heard of that before. Be worth a try though...


 
Guest
Hi, I am very curious how the product actually works. I know that other products containing Fenbendazole restrict the absorption of glucose and so killing them off but what is the process with No Planaria please. Neon

 
Staff
Nut palm extract does the job instead

 
Guest
Obviously, but how? neon

 
Staff
Not sure. Waiting for response from wholesaler.

 
Staff

I've now heard back from manufacturer. The No Planaria causes an eating disorder with the Planaria. That's why we need to wait for 72 hours and to keep dosing if No-planaria doesn't work with some strong planaria.


 
Guest
What does the dosage one spoonful equate to?

 
Staff

I'm not sure to be honest. Have you lost your spoon?


 
Guest
The No-planaria says one spoonful per 50 liters. Does that mean a teaspoon or tablespoon?

 
Staff

ah right. A small spoon comes with the packet :)


 
Guest
So there is a spoon inside the package in the powder?

 
Staff

Correct


 
Guest
Thanks!

 
Guest
I dosed my tank with the second dose of No-planaria last night, and noticed the water was quite cloudy this morning. That did not happen after the first, larger dose, the previous day. Any thoughts? Last, and smallest dose due tonight.

 
Staff

nothing to be concerned about - just a reaction with your water :)


 
Guest
Thanks. Will finish final dose tonight, and then do 25% water change while adding carbon to the Eheim on the next night.

 
Guest
Should you mix the powder with a small quantity of aquarium water before adding it to the tank?

 
Staff

Yes that's a good idea :)


 
Guest
I am using Seachem Purigen instead active carbon.Do I need to remove it before using Genchem No Planaria ???

 
Staff
Yep

 
Guest
Will this work on nematodes? If not can you recommend an alternative product safe for use in a shrimp tank?

 
Staff

It might but specifically designed for planaria.


 
Guest
I have red cherry shrimps and neon tetras - I also a cannister filter using a normal sponge filter I don't use carbon filters - I can't see the instructions on the package image, do I simply add the content directly into the water (as per dosage)?

 
Staff

instructions are on the package so don't worry - very easy to follow


 
Guest
I have just discovered the planaria in my African dwarf frog tank. There are no fish or shrimp in there. Is it safe to use with my frogs? Emma

 
Staff

Probably but there is no mention of frogs on the instructions 


 
Guest
Hiya, does this also kill Hydra? And also how many litres does this packet treat? Thanjs

 
Staff

no - search for hydra on the site as we sell stuff for that

Why it has a tag Free delivery if later i got only option to pay?

 
Staff

you probably had something else in your basket along side this product


 
Guest
Do we do a water change 72 hours after 1st dose or last dose as it don’t really say

 
Staff

After 72 hours from first dose


 
Guest
Hello. Will it kill detritus worms? I believe it has to kill them, but wanted to ask for sure... Thanks.

 
Staff

Don't know - more than likely but it's specifically for planaria as you know


 
Guest
What is the reason for the water change afterx72 hours? I didn't realise that was necessary. Today is day 6, with day 1 being the first treatment day. So today is 3 days after the last treatment

 
Staff

to remove leftover medication
