Has Anyone Used Panacur C? Question

Discussion in 'More Freshwater Aquarium Topics' started by TheBettaSushi, Apr 21, 2019.

    Wondering if anyone has used panacur c for detritus (or I think they are anyway).

    I have done a 3 gallon water change and have turned my sand substrate but I don’t think that is going to be enough to get rid of them even if I continue doing water changes every other day.

    I haven’t fed my betta and I plan on feeding every other day instead of every day moving forward. He usually gets 3 pellets or frozen food such as 1-2 bloodworms, 4 baby brine, or 2 mysis depending on the day as I rotate foods and fast on Saturday’s.

    I also have a nerite in the tank.

    I’d like to get some info on panacur c, how it works? How much to dose for a 6 gallon? Does it even work on detritus? Is it betta and plant safe? Nerite safe? Is there anything else that’s effective? I’d like to eradicate them entirely if possible without having to ruin my established tank or kill my fish, snail and plants.

    Any info will be appreciated.

    You can see photos of the worms in this post

    Yes it does work on detritus and planaria, it is supposed to be used for cats and dogs you know

    Well the packaging shows a dog on it so that’s pretty easy to distinguish :emoji_rolling_eyes:

    However, none of my questions were answered (except for the obvious).

    I've used it, does absolutely nothing for detritus. The term detritus covers several thousand species, it doesn't kill most in my experience. Even if it kills a few (used it for over 2 months in one tank) most will live and thrive

    It worked for me

    it wasnt panacur tho

    Do you know what type of detritus you have?
    Most of mine are unidentifiable nematodes, some are green, some are flatworms, and they just didn't die.

    Darn. Thanks! Have you tried anything with success? at least to lower their numbers significantly.

    Well if it wasn't Panacur then you can't comment on the efficiency of Panacur, can you?

    No sorry :(

    it was
    very similar to panacur it was still fenbendazole

    I’ve noticed that they’re in the front of the tank where I don’t get any or much flow. Nothing I can do to remedy that as it’s impossible to move the filter thanks to the Fluval edge design.

    I don’t know how else to get oxygen there because I’m assuming that is why they are visible. I don’t overfeed or I think I don’t. I clean nerite poop every day too. I did have browning on my sand but I siphoned all of that up taking a ton of sand out. Don’t know what else to do to get these things to die off.

    And keep sucking up all my sand until there’s nothing left? Makes no sense. I’m trying to keep my substrate and remove detritus worms. Not the other way around.
  13. goldfishexpertNew MemberMember

    oh you have sand, different story then

    you could use the fluval u4, how much gallons is your tank?

    No I can’t because there’s no room for that. I have a Fluval edge 6 gallon.

    You have no idea how many times I’ve seen that site... it doesn’t help lol.

    The spruce pets dosent help at all it nearly killed my 2year old goldie

    If you have 40-55 of them thats a major problem but 10-20 wont harm and your fish would be perfectly fine

    water changes are good is well

    Can u suck them up with a turkey baster as u see them to try to get their #'s down?

    Fenbendazole ; 1 gram of the 22% powder in 200ml water .That is the solution [mix] you will use .
    Then 20 ml per 10 g tank volume so you need about 12ml of the solution .
