A treatment protocol has been developed by Discus X CO.,LTD. and was tested on Discus fish in a trial that included 1500 discus fish from 11 farms across three countries. Samples were taken prior the treatment and lab tested to confirm multiple parasite infestation in addition to bacteriology test. The treatment protocol included with this kit has been proven to free Discus fish from Dactylogyrus (flukes), Cestoda (tapeworm), Capillaria (nematode worm), Costia, Trichodina, Oodinium and Columnaris. It also significantly reduces the population of intestinal flagellates, which increase under stress, in turn reduce
the fish appetite or refuse food darken body, cause lethargy and white feces.

Caution! To achieve the results we promise the instructions should be followed exactly without any modifications. Any change in the program could result in incomplete eradication of parasites or incomplete treatment of diseases. Before you start: a. It is always recommended to treat new fish in hospital tanks. Ideally a hospital tank will have only an air stone to supply air and a heater to control temperature (30-32 C during QT is highly recommended).
A sponge filter or any other type of filter is not required because large water changes will need to be performed.
B. If your aquariums are not new and previously had fish it is recommended to sterilize them. The most economical method is to use household bleach* at 50ml/100L of aquarium water for 24 hours. After that empty out the water and rinse the aquarium well and remove the rinsing water. Fill back the aquarium and add an aquarium water conditioner at a normal dose. Make sure there is no smell of residual chlorine. Complete this procedure at least 24-48 hours before the day of adding the new fish.
WARNING: After sterilization with bleach, you should remove all the water and rinse the aquarium well before refilling it back again. Not removing all traces of chlorine before adding new fish will cause death or severe damage to your fish. If the aquarium has any filter media or substrate that may trap the chlorine and release it back again in the new water!
A. On the first day of receiving your new fish, the first step will be to perform a 4hrs Chloramine-T bath in external container before adding them to the aquarium.
B. Prepare containers with 20-30 Liters of water (you can use the Styrofoam box the fish were shipped in or a plastic tub) with air stones in them -we will call this water bath-. Let the fish bags equalize to the room temperature so that the temperature in the prepared water baths is equal to the bags. Open the fish bags that the fish were shipped in and immediately take out the fish (without the shipping water) tothe receiving water bath.
C. Prepare a stock solution of Chloramine-T and add the correct dose to the water bath depending on your pH and water hardness. Please follow instructions in the Chloramine-T data sheet.
D. Monitor, the fish carefully through the 4 hours, normally the fish should be relaxed. If any sign of excessive stress or the fish looks restless, transfer it to the aquarium. After 4 hours have passed, transfer the fish to their aquariums.
E. After transferring all the fish to the aquarium add Bactocide 1(for dosage refer to Bactocideinstructions)Hint: it is beneficial to add salt at 1g/L to enhance osmotic balance and elevate stress in the fish during first 7 days.
After 24 hours have passed, since adding Bactocide, Make a 70-100% water change and repeat the dose. Hint: You can make the water change every 48 hours instead of 24hrs by adding a suitable water treatment product that will protect the fish from ammonia.
A dose that will neutralize up to 1 mg/L ammonia is recommended.
Day 8: Perform a 100% water change.
Day 9: Stop feeding and Add FLUKE X and WORMER X according to instruction on each productFLUKE X and WORMER X do not need water change to work, however, the water needs to be changed to keep it clean in absence of Bio-filtration. To remain safe use a product like ChloramX or Safe to neutralize ammonia. Hint: Like with Bactocide if you are using a product to neutralize ammonia you can extend the water change to 48h instead of every 24h.
Note: even if you had bio-filter active its effect will be reduced or eliminated after using Bactocide.
Day 11: Perform a 100% water change and re-dose only Fluke X and stop adding WormerX ( Please pay attention to your ammonia levels and conduct large water changes if needed).
Day 16: Stop adding FLUKE X and end treatment with a water change.
NOTE: By now you have completed the first round of deworming for both nematodes and tapeworms, However, these parasites produce eggs that are not affected by the medicine (And in some cases flukes that were shielded in the first round) and will re-infest the fish when they hatch in another week. Therefore, it is very important to repeat the treatment again on Day 24.
Day 24: Add FLUKE X and WORMER X according to instruction on each product.
Day 26: Perform a 100% water change and re-dose only Fluke X and stop adding Wormer X
Day 31: Stop adding FLUKE X and end treatment with a water change.
By now, your fish are free from flukes and nematodes. You can enjoy keeping healthy fish that grow and breed happily, fish that will not fall easily to disease because they are not made weak byparasites.
