It is recommended to change a large volume of the water in the aquarium and clean the filter correctly prior to using the remedy. Shake well before use. For every 20 l of water, evenly dispense 20 drops (1 ml) of Tetra Medica TremaCestoNemaEx into the aquarium.

Treat the aquarium on day 1 only. The treatment cycle lasts for 7 days. During treatment, please ensure that the aquarium is well aerated and do not use absorbent filter media (such as activated carbon, ion exchange resin, etc.) to filter the water. Switch off any UV clarifiers and ozone systems. At the end of the 7 days, change 30-50 % of the aquarium water and, if possible, use activated carbon to filter the water. To tackle all worm infections and small parasitic crustaceans, the whole treatment process must be carried out at least once every 2-3 weeks.
