PostSubject: worming bristlenose   Wed Jun 23, 2010 8:32 am

hi guys and girls
I have just started with common bristlenose.
my trio just gave me 56 babies they all seem to be doing well except one little one it seems to be half the size of the rest and very slim.
But my biggest problem is that i'd like to know how to worm my bristlenose and how often due to buying my first pair of orange spot bristlenose on sunday now wednesday and the female had a very hollow belly and she die this afternoon all my others are still all well due to having a mini reef system and all fish are only housed Sad in pairs or trio of thier kind.
I was told sheep dip would worm them but not game to try can anyone tell me how to worm them and what with?
Annita

Well, as far as my experences go, Big L wormer is the best! It paralyses the worms so they can pass out of the digestive tract. but not only that, it treats internal parasites as well. 1ml per 7ltrs.

few people on here swear by it! i know it do!

cant speak for the discus wormer but the Big L doesn't, as long as its used at the correct rate.
