Is Planaria Zero okay for Fish +scaleless fish and live plants? I ordered some to try, but have been hesitant. My Hydra infestation isn't horrible, mainly at the bottom of glass. I have noticed my cardinal tetra have nipped a few, but have not seen my black neons do it. Maybe if they're hungry enough I suppose.

Completely safe no problems at all heres the dosage, I left my nerite snails in by mistake and it never touched them, os my assissans,
It's a small spoon and little is used just level off the spoon, they will be dead within two days but do the full course
Day 1 - Dose 1 spoon per 6 gallons of water

Day 3 - Dose 1 spoon per 6 gallons of water

Day 4 - 20% water change

Day 10 - Dose 1 spoon per 6 gallons of water

Day 11 - 20% water change

I actually made a mistake, I bought No-Planaria, not Planarian zero. Would you know if it does the same thing? Kills hydra, safe for fish, live plants and BB? Thanks!

I believe they are the same but I'll do a bit of digging
I think so too but can never be too careful. Everyone talks about them in shrimp tanks only so it’s tough to discern. Thanks!!

Couple of things seems to be the same thing two different companies, it doesn't state it kills hydra but I suspect it will. Slightly different dosage so ignore what I told you on dosage, don't ont overdose, fish and plant safe, I don't think you have a problem
