Kusuri

Can anyone confirm /comment if  Kusuri wormer plus is dangerous to shrimp.

 

I have heard comments that it is but have used it before for fish where shrimps co exist & haven't  noticed any negative effect.

 

The guide instructions on the back of the packet only warn for snails.

I've read people using 2/3 dose in shrimp tanks and the shrimp were ok. Killed hydra, nematodes and planaria as well.

Ammonia might rise as a result so close monitoring and water changes will be necessary after treatment to deal with the extra ammonia created from the dead worms, nematodes and planaria.

 

Of course use at your own risk. I'm not guaranteeing it is safe, just what I've read.

I've used wormers with Levamisole and Flubendazole in tanks with cherries with no losses.

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
