Kusuri Fluke-M is a 50mg/g Flubendazole based medication used to eradicate Gill and Body Flukes. This treatment is safe to use without destroying the bacteria in the filter and can be used at any temperature. While dosing with Fluke M you can continue to feed.
This product is designed as a one off treatment, but may require a second dose after 7 days in heavy infestation. Alternatively you can use Kusuri Fluke – P after 7 days. Suitable for use with all cold water ornamental fish and can be used safely with all tropical freshwater fish.
Dosage: 11.8g per 1000 gallons (4546 Litres) of pond water.
Directions: 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. There is no need to turn off the UV steriliser. Fluke-M is safe to use with salt. For best results use above 15°C.
If the mucus layer is excessive, Kusuri 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 Kusuri Malachite Green and Kusuri 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.
