Discus Wormer

Recommended by Fish-4-u

Now in smart new updated packaging to celebrate 15 years since wormer plus first came out. Many fish come from massive river systems where water changes all the time. This is the difference to keeping them trapped in a 'glass box' & with nowhere to escape, unwanted pest can build up & possibly be a problem to fish. Using wormer plus on a regular basis will help keep these pest down. If any fish is in good health, not picked on and kept in the correct conditions worms should not a problem. But as soon as the fish is stressed or bullied, its natural immunity is compromised and worms or other pest can take a hold. A sure sign of a worm problem is when the fish still eats, yet is wafer thin with the famous pinched in look above the eyes. Wormer plus will rid discus & aquarium fish of internal helminths, plus a host of other pest including ring worm where some other wormer's have failed. Although a second dose after four days will be needed in heavy infestations of flukes. So if your discus looks black, emaciated or just worn out use wormer plus on a regular basis and do them a favour. It is not necessary to turn off U/V sterilisation during its application, but it is advisable to remove carbon whilst using this medication for full effect.

Flubendazole is the effective main active ingredient, & works differently to other fluke treatments by gently starving the parasite. Making this product perfectly safe for regular usage. Naturally sourced calcium carbonate is blended in & acts as a gentle booster and 'pick me up' after the pests are killed. A minuscule amount of Natural Calcium carbonate (0.01g) is blended with the Flubenzonal to adjust a very slight drop in PH from adding the Flubenzonal. This cleverly balances out this medication making very little (if any) difference to PH when using wormer plus.

Discus had a bad name as a difficult fish to keep, some said imposable. NOT SO, just misunderstood. As long as they have the right conditions & free of parasites they are just as easy to keep as any other tropical fish. Discus keeping in the old days was regarded as a fish shrouded in mystery, and difficult to keep. Just to be kept by the experts and the highly experienced. It is recommended to worm your discus once a month for trouble free discus keeping and this will give them a flying start if introducing new stock. Now keeping your favourite tropical fish has never been easier.

WARNING: It is advisable NOT to use this medication in a tank containing stingrays or pet snails

Tortoise Wormer

The secret to a successful hibernation, and general health for your tortoise just launched is tortoise….wormer plus. Manufactured by Kusuri, and made exclusively for Plymouth discus. It will help keep your valued tortoise in tip top condition. For the first time ever, your pet tortoise can be wormed at home with out taking them away to worm them. This is less stressful for the animal, easier and less expensive than any other way of treating in the past. Tortoise wormer plus is a flubendazole based medication for use against intestinal helminthic worms and external ticks, to keep your tortoise in tip top condition and health. Worms are a fact of life for tortoises which in the past has been responsible for many failed hibernations, every tortoise can carry its own complement of parasitic worms. When in good condition and health, these worms are not a problem. But as soon as the tortoise is stressed or hibernating, its natural immunity is compromised and internal parasites can take a hold. This product will control tapeworms and other helminths, and help to ensure a successful hibernation. It is advisable to use this product again when any tortoise is waking from hibernation to help them recover and pick up strength quickly after a long sleep. Tropical tortoises need only be wormed 2-4 times a year, where as with hibernating species, it is advisable to worm before hibernation and again upon waking from a long hibernation period for safe recovery. For maximum protection, use every three months, the same as you would treat a cat or dog.


Shake the contents of the sachet well, measure out the correct dosage for each tortoise to be treated. This will need to be sprinkled over enough food for one animal, per meal, per day. If you are treating more than one animal at a time, they will need to be separated while being wormed and treated with this product. This can be repeated if necessary for up to 4 days with out any ill effect. It is possible to add this treatment to a luke warm water bath at the dose of one level scoopful (supplied) per two litres of luke warm water, and mix well. If possible sit the tortoise in the solution so it can lift its head above the water level for 20 minutes. Please note some tortoises may keep their head under the water for well over five to ten minutes at a time. This is normal and they are merely just drinking, and not drowning as long as the water level is half way up the body/shell of the animal and they can lift their head up comfortably above the water level.

Dosage: Use 0.3g, or one level 0.5 ml scoop (included) per 2 litres of luke warm bathing water, or sprinkle over enough food for one meal per animal to be treated. It is a good idea to gently mist warm water over any food to be treated, to make the powdered medication 'stick' to the food and be consumed by the tortoise being treated. This is the best way of administering this treatment. This treatment can be safely re-dosed again if a second treatment is necessary in heavy infestations.

The correct dosage to cover all weights of tortoises are per animal:
25 grams to 250 grams = 1 x Level blue scoop
251 grams to 2.5 kg = 2 x Level blue scoops
2.5 kg and over = 3 x Level blue scoops
