    Hi anand,
    Do you have a picture of the so called hair worms? And any specific parasites that you are looking at?

    Bro Anand

    Welcome to Koianswer . To treat parasites, dimilin is the best medicine. You have to treat in 2 dose
    Apply First dose at 2 g/ton for 3-5 days to kill all existing parasites
    Change 30% water and apply 2nd dose after 5 days to kill newly hatch parasites

    Hope the above helps and gud luck. Nway, where r u from?

    Hi bro anand.

    Just follow bro TK's suggestion. You are having anchor worm and fish lice problem. You can use dimilin for both. I have bombed a hobbyist badly affected pond with Dimilin(for anchor worm) and Masoten(for fish lice) together. Masoten dosage is half of dimilin's dosage. These 2 combos is very effective. But some hobbyist just use Dimilin and it works according to them.

    Mix the chemical in a pale of water. Mix it. Pour it in pump chamber or first chamber or both(i prefer both as concentration will be better distributed). Good luck bro.

    Yup, those are anchor worms and the round ones are argulus. Dimilin will cure both i.e. 2 grams per ton, for 5 days.....dropped 20 - 25%, then add the second dose for another 5 days. Off the UV light, and no feeding.......Masoten will also do the trick. Anchor worms and argulus are easy to cure...........
