Skin and gill worms (flukes) are flattish trematodes, 0,3-0,5 mm in size which were previously relatively uncommon in pond fish. However, nowadays they are regularly encountered.

Gyrodactylus is the skin worm. This worm gives birth to living young and is therefore capable of rapid and massive reproduction. The resultant skin irritation gives rise to thickening of the skin.

The gill worm is called Dactylogyrus. This parasite lays eggs. It causes damage and irritation to the gills with resultant thickening and loss of full function.

Infested fish rub their gills on plants and stone. In advanced cases they swim with the gills permanently opened and they can even die.

Instructions for use: Read the complete manual carefully before use. Dosage: 20 grams (=1 measuring spoon) per 500 litres of pond water.
