FLUKE-SOLVE™ (replacing Solupraz)
Fluke-Solve™ is the result of in-depth research by veterinary fish experts who have recognised the need for ornamental fish keepers to have access to high quality veterinary pharmaceutical products which are both safe and effective. It is a further refinement of Solupraz, and has now replaced it. The active ingredient in Fluke-SolveT is praziquantel which has been used in a range of fish species for the control of a variety of fish parasites since the early 1990's, with specific studies in carp for cestode (tapeworm) infestations as well as ectoparasites such as monogean trematodes, or flukes.

Extensive trials have shown no toxic effect of Praziquantel on the natural wildlife of the pond.
Fish Treatment Ltd has a policy of always seeking to improve its products, and hence further refinements have resulted in Fluke-Solve™, the next generation product. Although this powder still retains its easy-to-use format (just rip and tip the sachet into some pond water, stir, and return to the pond) it now has the added benefit that it can be used at much colder temperatures – it has been successfully trialled at temperatures as low as 3˚C! One single treatment is all that is required for adult flukes and larvae – and so long as you don’t do any major water changes (filter cleaning is fine) then this will sort egg-laying gill flukes as well. Not only that, but independent trials showed that it dramatically reduces Trichodina on the fish. It is also perfectly safe to use with salt in the pond (it is extensively used in marine systems).
There are now two convenient sachet sizes -
Fish Treatment Ltd also recognised the importance of keeping healthy parasite-free aquarium fish , and have also launched Fluke-Solve™ Aquarium, in a handy 10g pack with a scoop which measures 1 gram for easy dosing to smaller tanks.
