    Most fluke will probably be hunkered down at 8 and giving the way fluke solve works would like have any effect at low temps so I my eyes you be throwing money away on expensive treatments sit on your hands till it warms up abit . Fluke aren't nice but are a lot less to worry about than other parasites on a risk of death scale fish will cope

    for me it would depend on numbers per scrape and what type of fluke at 8C.
    if you have loads, 3+ on each slide for multiple scrapes then i'd treat regardless...

    but flukes shouldn't be multiplying exponentially at that temperature.
    so if you only have the odd one showing on a scrape.
    then like AJM says, i'd leave it until it's warmer as you will probably have to re treat when it warms up anyway.
    and if gill flukes the treatment won't touch the eggs that lie dormant at that temperature anyway...
