Gill Maggots Treatment





Ergasilus, commonly known as “Gill maggot,” find their way into ponds from newly acquired fish that haven’t been properly quarantined before introduction into the main show pond. If they were bred in an overstocked aquarium or ponds the likelihood of fish having parasites is fairly high.

How it Works: (This Medication will not harm pond plants or wildlife)

Absolute Aqua-Vet Gill Maggot+ is an effective medication to target treat a specific parasite species. Absolute Aqua-Vet Gill Maggot+ Is a powerful chitin inhibitor. Absolute Aqua-Vet Gill Maggot+ works by Interfering with the development of the new chitin exoskeleton. The parasite will continue to feed and develop normally until it is time to shed its old exoskeleton. At this point, the parasites die due to the inability to form a new exoskeleton and mouthparts not forming, resulting in its death.
