Praziquantel: Med For Flukes & Internal Parasites

On a thread at the bottom of the page, this med is mentioned. It was just recently made available to keepers of ornamental fish (prescription is still required for humans, cats and dogs). It is much less toxic to wet pets than other products on the market and is reported very effective.

Apparently, the only drawback is price. It's quite expensive. The manufacturer will soon coming out with smaller quantities, but the price is very high. It may be best to purchase this product in the higher quantity and split the cost with friends.

Please see links. This med sounds *very* promising to loach keepers who wish to deworm their fish.
