- Treatment for parasites
- Effective against planaria
- Safe for plants and invertebrates
Expel-P from Fritz Aquatics is used as a deworming medication and is intended to treat parasites such as Planaria, Nematodes (like Camallanus Red Worms), Roundworms, Nodular Worms and Hookworms. Symptoms in new and sick fish can include worms visibly protruding from the anus of the fish, wasting, abdominal bloating, disinterest in food, or rapid breathing or gasping. The active ingredient used in Expel P is Levamisole HCl. Expel-P will not harm biological filtration, plants, invertebrates or fish which are not infected.
We recommend using an air stone when treating with this medication.
Expel-P does not treat Cestodes (tapeworms) or Trematodes (flukes). For these parasites, try Fritz ParaCleanse.
My angel had Camallanus worms and after using Expel-P I had seen immediate results with my fish. It takes several uses to hopefully kill them off completely.
I'm on the second dose and so far the fish have reacted well. The water didn't cloud up, either.
Bought it to get rid of planaria and hydra. I have not seen anymore hydra or planaria since dosing this medicine.
Seemed to work.
I found out that I had a fish with red worms. I was shocked to say the least. I was told that this product would work and it does.!!!
