Flukesolve is a prazi based treatment, correct??

If so, I would dose once and then use this treatment calendar to determine when is the best time to add the second dose: http://www.marineparasites.com/paratreatmentcal.html
Yes it is, 50%,
This is the manufactures recommendation

"We recommend you scrape after 1 week to ensure the treatment is successful. If gill flukes are suspected or confirmed, repeat treatment after 21 days to ensure developed eggs are killed. Use once a year as a routine wormer to prevent the build-up of tapeworm or flukes."

But when I talked to the Dr behind it, for Worms she suggested if you had seen them, was dose week 1 then another dose 3 weeks later unless I performed any water changes then I should re dose to maintain levels.

In no way an expert so Im open to other peoples ideas and recommendations.

@Salmo Si, is probably better to give his opinion on it than me with his background and probably has used it more than me.

On a side note that website is interesting so thanks for the link.

I don't know why they recommend what they do.

You need to use the treatment calender Humblefish posted above. Waiting 3 weeks could result in more eggs being in the tank when the second dose is administered.
