Anti-Fluke for curing flukes Prazipro for curing flukes

Flukes are parasites that attach to the bodies of fish, especially the gills.  Although flukes can cloud the skin color, the parasites do not usually produce a visually noticeable effect.  The most common evidence of flukes it based on the behavior of the fish.  They will brush quickly against a rock or abrasive surface in an attempt to scratch the fluke from their body.  A salt bath may be effective using 4 ounces of aquarium salt per 10 gallons.  Also consider Prazipro by Hikari or Anti-Fluke by Aquarium Products.
