- Gill flukes are often not recognizable to the naked eye. They can only be diagnosed by microscopic examination
- JBL Online Hospital: gives you access to identify fish diseases
- Package contents: Gyrodol Plus 250, 100 ml. Suitable for aquariums with max. 500 l. In repeated use max. 250 l. 10 ml/50 l water. Remains in the water: 48 hours. Then 30 % water change.
- About 90 % of all fish diseases can be put down to a weakening of the fish’s immune system.
- This means the application of remedies can fight the pathogen but doesn’t generally eliminate the cause. It is therefore very important to determine the cause.
Skin flukes (Gyrodactylus):
- Adult skin flukes live as parasites on the skin of fish. With the help of JBL Gyrodol Plus 250, both the worms on the fish and those in the water can be killed reliably.
- The worms are live bearing, (with the exception of the species of the Dactylogyrus genus, which are egg-laying and primarily parasitize on the gills of the fish), with the larvae having to find a host fish within 48 hours.
- The chances of the larvae not finding a host fish are greater in a planted aquarium, because they swim towards shadows, which are often produced by the plants.
- Skin flukes desert a dying fish very quickly, so that they can no longer be identified on the dead fish.
- Worms that have fallen off of a fish can survive without a host for up to 10 days, depending on temperatures.
Gill flukes, Dactylogyrus, monogenic flukes:
- Disease symptoms: Rapid breathing, wide open gill cover, apathy and paleness.
- A low infestation with gill flutes isn’t a problem. A problem only occurs when the worms massively reproduce.
- This can be only observed in excessively overstocked aquariums or ponds and where there is a lack of hygiene.
- Another kind of slime formation happens in the gills of the fish if fish are infected with gill flutes.
- The fish feels the worms in the gills, which anchor themselves there, and tries to get rid of them through slime formation.
- Unfortunately this doesn’t work and the fish suffocates on its own slime. For gill flutes rapid treatment with JBL Gyrodol Plus 250 is advised.
Can I use two different medications at the same time?
> Unless otherwise indicated in the instructions for use, the simultaneous use of two different medications is not possible and we strongly advise against it. Toxic cross reactions and undesirable side effects, such as oxygen deficiency or nitrite, cannot be ruled out. If your fish suffer from a primary infection and further secondary infections, always treat the primary infection or disease with the highest stress factor for the animal. Finish a treatment with the correct dosage in accordance with the instructions and then start the second medication. After the treatment or between two treatments, filter the aquarium water over activated carbon for 24 hours to remove any residual medication. The activated carbon need then to be disposed of properly. Any medical treatment is also a stress factor for your fish, so be careful not to overburden your animals and only treat them after a thorough diagnosis.
Can my sturgeons stay in the pond during the treatment?
> Your sturgeons can also be affected by the disease and need to be treated. They also have to be considered as “ornamental fish” (wording used in the instructions). If there is no separate warning information about fish species mentioned in the instructions, there are no concerns about the use and dosage of this product.
Can I use over-the-counter medications for ornamental fish in fish that will be used for human consumption later ?
> No. As a rule, over-the-counter medications for ornamental fish may not be used in fish that are bred for human consumption.
