How to prepare product:
Flatworm Rx is packaged in powder form to ensure 100% strength when first used. Remove screw-on cap from bottle. Slowly and carefully, fill the supplied bottle containing powder approximately 98% full with R.O (reverse osmosis) water. Leave some space in the bottle for dropper tip. Take the supplied dropper tip and snap into place of the bottle opening. Cover the dropper tip with screw-on cap and securely tighten. Shake bottle well until the powder inside has completely turned into solution and granular powder is no longer visible. Product is now ready for use.
How to use product:
Siphon out as many flatworms as possible before dosing. Add 4 drops of Flatworm Rx for every 10 gallons (37.9 liters) of water. Do not dose more than one treatment in a 24-hour period. For best results, add in high flow areas one drop at a time. Do not stop the use of carbon or protein skimming when adding this product. Flatworms are extremely toxic to aquarium inhabitants. It is very important to do a 25% water change once results are visible. Siphon out as many of the flatworms as possible when performing the water change. Repeat treatment as necessary.
Caution: All UV and Mechanical Filtration SHOULD be suspended/turned off during the course of medication. UV renders many medications inactive and mechanical filtration removes it from the water before it has a chance to work.
