Levamisole is an often
hard to find medication that has long been recognized as a cure
for "livebearer Disease", as well as most other
worm or parasitic infections. Livebearer disease has become very
prevalent in the hobby, and is characterized by a dramatic
even though the fish appears to be eating, to the point where they
will waste away and eventually die. Other treatments are rarely
effective, The "disease"
is actually a small parasite that lives on the sides of the
fish, feeding on its fluids. The fish eventually
cannot sustain itself
and perishes. The organism releases new generations into the
water that settle on other fish, and the entire
tank may succumb. Levamisole is a livestock de-worming dip.
Dosage: 1/4 teaspoon will treat a 100 gallon tank. Divide up 1/4
teaspoon into 10 equal parts, putting each 10 gallon dosage into
small plastic bag marked "10", etc. Do a water change before
treatment. Treat and wait 24 hours. After 24 hours, do another
change and treat again. Most fish will tolerate larger amounts than
the recommended dosage, and losses are rare after treatment.
