jesseter Posted December 8, 2014 Report Share Posted December 8, 2014 So I brought in a couple of my pond plants and put them in my 10 gallong bloody mary tank. This morning I saw some hydra in the tank. I am guessing they hitchhiked in on the plants. Really stupid on my part I should have treated them, but it never crossed my mind. So I have some of the febendazole I got off of a retail site. It says it has 225mg in the package. I found these instructions in one of the comments. Next method, the better of the two but you will need a syringe. I did a 25% water change before using this method. Take 100ml of aquarium water, dump in one full packet and stir. 1ml per 10 gallon, repeat every 12hrs till Hydra gone. This way you get more of a dissolved solution. One dose seemed to do it. In my tank I had various kinds of shrimp and babies, rabbit, mystery, mts, and nerite snails, dwarf crayfish, guppy, various live plants. All did well. If they return I still have my solution ready.Day five, no water change since the last dose, snails are showing signs of stress. Hydra gone, shrimp are fine. Will do a 30% water change and add new snails, I moved the others to another tank to bounce back.Oh, watch for pH and Ammonia spikes, it may cause a mini cycle or spikes and a water change will be needed. I used Stress Zyme before using product and after water change. Does this sound like a good method of dosing. I saw the just add a pinch method and that didn't set well with me. Thanks everybody in advance!! Jesse Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
