      Everytime I change the water in the tank one of the fish starts clamping her fins. About 30 minutes after the change. i have also seen her in that period dashing to the surface coming back down and releasing bubbles. A couple of days ago she would eat peas and spit them back out. Today she did that with the pellets. although after I took her out of the tank to add new water. So maybe she was stressed. However I just saw her dive to the bottom and twist her side. As if she was trying to scratch herself against the gravel. :(

Her tap runs about 7.6 and her tank 8.0. I've been working with her on her cycling thread . . . . :)

Okay, sorry they weren't listed above. Then, that isn't the problem. So...go squash those Flukes :pan

Dandy, do you have any medications with prazi in it? Lisa and Jared, I think that she hasn't had time to get prazi pro from the US. I'm not sure where opinion is running about using Wormer plus (available in the UK) because opinion is divided?

Could a salt dip begin helping while she waits for the prazi to arrive? Is there another UK substitute?

Hey girls and boys. Yes my tap ph is 7.4 to 7.6. At the moment my tank is the same. Although at the start it was more towards 8.

I have ordered prqzipro from tasty worms but am now waiting for it. I saw a thread in the UK bit about this med in the UK for discus that is similar to prazipro

Hi Susanne, these are good suggestions, although the salt dip should be preceded by a thorough check of gills, as well as perhaps a trial run of a 1% salt dip first. :)

Wormer Plus remains a fantastic choice for flukes treatment in the UK.

Btw could the fact that Eduardo isn't eating much be a sign of flukes

It can be, as well as being a sign of just being ill/constipated.

Thanks guys for helping me.

Wormer plus is in the form of pills though isn't it? I am worried they won't eat it. They have been spitting out a lot of the stuff I have given them.

I thought they might be constipated. So i fed them peas but they didn't like them much. I also didn't feed them other the weekend. That was before I fed them peas.

They seem happy enough mist of the time. It's just Pascal that behaves strange 30 minutes after waterchanges and Eduardo who doesn't eat much.

I'm going to go get some bloodworms this weekend

Wormer Plus is not a pill, but is a powder. It is made for fish by Kusuri, and looks like this

So after todays waterchange, Pascalle almost immediately started flashing. She has calmed down now and has stopped doing it. Eduardo has swam a couple of times to the surface and the dived back down emiting bubbles. Pascalle is also doing this.

I have a big bottle of PraziPro and I am happy to share it with you so you can start the treatment before your bottle arrives :)

You guys in somewhere in the same neighborhood, aren't you? :rofl
