Are planaria in aquariums?
Planaria in aquariums can be quite shocking at first discovery. I will discuss, below, one of our experiences with this worm and how we eradicated it from one of our Red Cherry Tanks. But first, why did we have them?
How big of a tank do you have for a planarian?
The tank size is a 100 Gallon tank. The amount of planarian in the tank was quite large, so picking them out or sucking them out 1 by 1 was out of the question. So after reading about others on the web, and their expreiences, we decided upon a product called Safe-Guard Canine DeWormer.
How much planaria is safe for a 50 gallon?
So if you have a 50 Gallon tank, you could be safe in using .5 Grams, etc. The dosage was added on July 13th at 12:00PM. After checking the tank that same night around 10PM (10 hours later), I noticed that only 1 planaria was visible and showing signs of distress.
How to identify planaria without a magnifying glass?
This is the best way to identify planaria without using a magnifying glass – the arrow like head is visible to the naked eye. Unfortunately, when planaria squish up, it can be difficult to see this shape.
