Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've come across basic info on hydrogen peroxide dips for goldfish to treat flukes. Just wondering if anyone had any experience/advice?

I'm struggling with a stubborn infestation!

Thanks!

Hello! We don't usually recommend hydrogen peroxide dips for flukes. What have you tried so far?

 

Also, if you could fill out the D&D form (link below), that will give us more information to help you.

Thank you for your response Lisa. I am currently doing the recommended treatment of Prazi and salt which has worked for me in the past.

I was just wondering if anyone has experience with this method of peroxide dips out of curiosity... Ive read about it on various sites but nothing in detail or about people's experiences.

Thanks

Personally I wouldnt try Peroxide is very harsh on the fish... I have only used it to get PP out or to clean out a cut or infection... It can really burn a fish if you do to much or add to much to the water... :o

Thank you for the reply. My first impression was that it seemed to be a fairly harsh method, but I just wanted more experienced opinions. Thanks again.
