Hi All
Just found this anybody used it? and is any good?

Fluke-Solve for effective control of tapeworms and flukes
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, without prescription, which are both safe and effective.

The active ingredient in Fluke-Solve 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.

The method of treatment using Fluke-Solve is as follows:-

Sufficient product should be used to ensure a concentration of 4 grams of Fluke-Solve per 1000 litres (220 gallons) of water.

Directions for use:

Turn off any Ozone or UV filters and bypass any carbon filters.Add the required amount of powder to 5 litres of aquarium water in a clean container and stir for one minute.Immediately add this stock solution to the aquarium. Leave for 24 hours.

Repeat treatment after 7 days to ensure developed eggs are killed.

Can be used, if required once a year as a routine wormer to prevent the build-up of tapeworm or flukes. Particularly useful for conditioning newly imported Wild Discus.

Fluke-Solve at correct dosage can be used in the aquarium without affecting either bacterial filters or plants.

Fluke-Solve is manufactured to the highest European Pharmaceutical standard under a Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Licence.

Fluke-Solve,has been specially developed for use by Fiona Macdonald BVMS MRCVS, a fish vet. You can be assured of its quality.

Fluke-Solve is deactivated by UV light and carbon filters so these must be turned off for 24 hours after the Fluke-Solve is administered.

Praziquantel does not usually dissolve well in water, and many products use powder which needs to be added to solvents before use. The special formulation of Fluke-Solve has overcome this problem, allowing you to use an effective dose without the risks of other additions.

2 grams of Fluke-Solve is equivalent to 1 gram of pure Praziquantal.

Fluke-Solve is marketed under the Small Animal Exemption Scheme of the Veterinary Medicines Directorate.

Fluke-Solve is available in 10g packets and costs £17.95 It will become widely available through the mainstream aquatic shops, but in the meantime should you need some, I have the first production run available.
