    For sure.. I was talking to a guy the other day and he's already spent in excess of £350 trying to get rid of his fluke issue. He's still not convinced he's on top of it yet! He's old school, knows his stuff too.. when asked about SV, he turned his nose up at the suggestion and moved the conversation on.. whether that's because he only trusts what he knows. or it's the availability of trying something different...

    Yes mate, I think that is what Ricky is saying too. Fluke m is the off the shelf koi version of flubenol I believe. Still significantly cheaper that Lernex pro

    it depends, for skin fluke yes, gill fluke no, but depends on the level of mucous.
    i've never found the gills to be slimey during a scrape so don't see the purpose, other than to reduce organic load in the pond.

    the biggest problem with treatment ime is filtration breaking the medication down, the better the filtration, the quicker it gets reduced.
    the 100% best way i've found is to treat the fish in a clean vat or intex pool.

    I had one last year that was riddled with gill flukes, 50-100 gill flukes per slide.
    even when i'd treated the pond, and the rest of the fish were fine.
    i put it in an intex pool with clean dechlorinated water and just an air stone, two days after treatment all the gill flukes were gone.

    it seems some fish are repositories for flukes, and then constantly re-infect the other fish.
