Hello,

 

 

Is this an ok Prazi brand -

 

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Blue-Planet-Fluke-Tapeworm-Tablets-100s-/221278431430?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item338538e8c6

 

 

Also, how many tablets would I need for a treatment of a 120 gallon tank?

 

Last but not least; does Prazi have any impact on biological filtration?

 

Many thanks all,

 

Jim

Looked it up and it seems to be one tablet per 20 litres. :yikes

Praziquantel has no impact on beneficial bacteria. It is one of the safest medications you can use for your aquarium.

I'd try to find powdered Prazi... Generally a dosage of something around 1 tsp for a 120g tank.

This is all I can find.

 

Maybe another Aussie can jump in and tell me where the powdered product is available from?

Thanks Dan, hopefully Helen can chime in as I can't PM her.

 

So my tank is 450 litres

 

That's 23 tablets.

 

 

So how many would I need for a whole course?

You would dose once every 5 OR 7 days for about a month.

There's a praziquantel treatment outline here can tell you every step along the way. :D

Ok....just to clarify.....that means that I need around 125 tablets for a full dose regime???

Depending on which regime you chose, some dosages are doubled. I'd just count up the times it says to dose on the chart of your choosing with your dosage of 23. :)

You could round it up to 25 so you have a few extras in case. :donthit:

That's what I normally used, but it got really expensive dosing 1 tablet per 20 litres.

 

I bought this last time: http://www.guppysaquariumproducts.com.au/microbe-lift-praziquantel.html

 

One bottle treats 360gallons dosage is 1 teaspoon per 20 gallons
