    Hey all,

    I am new to the forum.
    I actually have a thread on Oodinium but cant seem to reply since the site tells me I cant add links or URLs, therefore I need to make 2 new posts...
    So I figure to talk about another parasite of interest.

    The Gill Fluke parasite egg hatches in 4 days time at 20C. Then it has 48 hours to find a host or else die.
    Therefore, if you leave the tank without a fish host for 7 days at 28C, then the parasite will starve to death.

    Can anyone confirm?

    No chemical treatments of medicine allowed. Tanks receive medium light, 25-30ppm CO2 and EI Ferts as usual.
