To kill MTS coppersafe needs to be at least triple dosed. This will kill them in time. They will have to open their doors to eat and breathe sometime, but it will also do major damage to plecos.

I have MTS in most all my tanks and it's a never ending battle to remove them. The only sure fire way to get rid of them is to take the tank down and boil/freeze everything.

Ziggy yep I did they're not that crazy about that.

They're literally multiplying everytime I think i got them all they come back in waves.


Just got email from Jehmco.

We have not had flubendazole for 10 years
We do have fenbendazole.

Copper works for snails, but it also isn't good for scaleless fish like synos or most other cats and plecos.

Copper also doesn't dissipate from water. I has to be removed manually IE. water changes or carbon.



I have already tried coppersafe, and they are not effective on eliminating all kinds of snails, this didn't work on those snails I had when I put the tank thru hydra infestation treatment.

I read someone's post that snails with doors such as MTS and some other kinds it won't work for them same with salt treatment, that's why it didn't faze the snails in my tank.


And for others suggestion to take the tank apart is not an option. I have plants and driftwood and whatnot. Not willing to go through this hassle again trying to get plecos out of their hidey holes, and everytime I take apart the tank, I run the risk of my L134s refusing to bred again this has been known to happen.


I just want the Flubendazole source not another 1,000 "possible" leads and jehmco doesn't sell them its not listed on their site I already emailed them waiting to hear back from them on the response why its not listed.

95 suppliers for you. Depending on the fish you have...I'd try copper. No color or smell, and it dissipates within a few days.


Try to find a site that will sell them to an individual that's  based in the United States. I am not getting this from any other country. No go.

I got rid of snails by moving fish out to another tank.  Removed water and left the unfilled tank out in an unheated garage for half the winter.  That's the few uses I've found for the Chicago cold.

Not checked for facts.

Oh my.


SO many reputable fish keepers have sworn by flubendazole  for treatments of many different worms but also swear by it for killing snails which I wanted to buy some just so I can finally say bye bye to the snail problem I got in my fish tanks now.


Got tired after a hour of ending up to the same source that is no longer there


Anyone have any good source? I really want the snails gone for once. Salt didn't do the trick. Assassin snails didn't do the trick, clown loaches ingore those tiny pinprick snails.
