Step Eighteen

Assess Broad Spectrum or Shotgun Concepts and Remedies

To fight koi parasites and bacterial infections simultaneously:


Shotgun Therapy

1. Water testing

2. TERMINATE (treats salt resistant parasites)

3. Praziquantel

4. Diflubenzuron IDI Express

5. Medicated koi food

Concepts behind this method:

· TERMINATE controls the salt resistant ciliated protozoan parasites.

· Medicated food, in lieu of injections, controls the development of bacterial infections which might be brought on by transportation stress.

· Praziquantel is completely safe to use with salt and control Flukes, which are extremely common, very completely.

· Express IDI eliminates all crustacean parasites including Argulus and Lernea.

· Water testing is important because in quarantine, water quality sometimes sags. This compounds the fishes' stress and is worse than no quarantine at all! Also, fish will NOT get over their various ailments in poor water quality!

NOTE: If fish won't eat, then the medicated food will not achieve its objective. We suggest you treat your fish with:

Ulcer Aid Rx has really changed everything as it replaces injections for those whom are afraid to give them.
