Kusuri Fluke M is a 50mg/g Flubendazole medication used to eradicate Gill and Body Flukes. This treatment is safe to use without destroying your filter bacteria. It can be used at any temperature. While dosing with Fluke M you can continue to feed.
If the mucus layer is excessive, we advise dosing with Chloramine T at 15g per 1000 gallons, 24 hours before using Fluke M, this will assist in reducing the mucus membrane where body flukes can sometimes get trapped.
Caution: Please check your pH and KH prior to using. Chloramine T can be very toxic in soft water. If your pH is below pH7 (acid) and has a general hardness below 6°dH (soft water) reduce the dose by 75%. Do not use with salt.
Dosage: 11.8g per 1000 gallons (4546 Litres) of pond water.
For best results use above 15°C.
Kusuri Fluke M stays active in the water for a total of 7 days.
Shake contents of the sachet well. Measure out the correct dose for pond and dissolve in a container with boiling water. Stir and allow the mixture to cool before adding slowly to the return of the pond over a 1 hour period. It is recommended that you turn off the UV. Fluke M is safe to use with salt.
If the mucus layer is excessive, we advise dosing with Chloramine T at 15g per 1000 gallons, 12 hours before using Fluke M, this will assist in reducing the mucus membrane where body flukes can sometimes get trapped. Kusuri Fluke M is not an invasive, toxic medication like Malachite Green and Formalin 30%. The Flubendazole is absorbed by the flukes and dissolves their digestive tract that subsequently starves the parasite. Fluke M may require a second dose after 7 days in heavy infestations. Kusuri recommend a mucus scrape and microscope identification prior to a second application.
Fluke M is safe to use with all cold water ornamental fish and all tropical freshwater fish. Do not use Fluke M with Sting Rays.
