Dosage Instructions

Full Dose: Use 4g per 1,000 litres (220 gallons).

SKIN FLUKESa four day regime: Day 1 – Before using KUSURI Fluke S we recommend you treat with KUSURI Chloramine T  to assist mucus layer removal – Apply 15g of Chloramine T  per 4,546 litres (1,000 gallons). Please check your pH and KH prior to using as 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. Day 2 – Treat with KUSURI Fluke S using a full dose treatment. Day 3 – 1/2 dose KUSURI Fluke S treatment. Day 4 – 1/2 dose KUSURI Fluke S treatment. 

GILL FLUKES – a four day regime: Treat as for Skin Flukes, as above, the four day regime. After 10 days scrape again. If Gill Flukes are still present repeat Day2/Day3/Day4 KUSURI Fluke S treatments again. This allows for the eradication of life cycle and eggs.

DO NOT OVERDOSE. Over dosing can cause fish fatalities.

For best results use above 10°C. 

How To Use

Switch UV steriliser, carbon filter and protein skimmer off until treatment is complete for a minimum of three days. Clean filter before applying KUSURI Fluke S for optimum effectiveness.

Check water temperature before use. For best results use above 12°C. Below 12°C parasites become dormant. Be aware of day to evening temperature fluctuations. Measure the correct dose and dissolve in a container with hot water. Allow the hot mixture to cool, continue to mix while adding slowly to the return of the pond over a one hour period. We recommend a scrape and microscope identification prior to treating to ascertain whether you have skin or gill flukes, as the treatment regime is different.
If a drum filter is being used, either by pass, or remove the screen for the duration of the Fluke S treatment.  If Bakki Showers are being used, either turn off or remove the media and place in the pond for the duration of the treatment. Being powder based it does not suit drum filters or Bakki Showers.
