- Treatment for Parasites
- Effective Against Planaria
- Plant and Invertebrate Safe
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 airstone when treating with this medication.
Expel-P does not treat Cestodes (tapeworms) or Trematodes (flukes). For these parasites, try Fritz ParaCleanse.
I was pleased to see how much this product helped my corydora. He is still in quarantine for a few more weeks but is much more active.
I had issues with wasting disease in 2 of my tanks, one of which was a quarantine for wild caught rosy loaches, and another for panda garras that I'd had for a couple years but one seemed to be not doing well for a while. After Paracleanse didn't seem to do the trick, I tried Expel-P. I'm pretty sure this was the turning point for my fish! Easy to use and I did not notice any ill effects to my fish, plants, or snails. As a bonus, Aquarium Coop always ships meds super fast!
Awesome product!!!!! Would definitely recommend to others.
