JBL Aradol Plus 250 is a medication to treat carp louse (Argulus), anchor worm (Lernae), gill maggots (Ergasilus, etc.) and other parasitic crustaceans (woodlice) in aquarium fish in fresh and salt water. Fish infected with carp lice become shy, show abnormal behaviour -particularly jumping in the night- and try to rub against stones. The bites of the lice may cause inflamed areas on the skin. Carp louse can be seen with the naked eye as 4-12 mm long, finger-nail shaped parasites. Anchor worms are easily recognised as whitish, long, rod- or branchaped parasites with two long egg sacs. The head burrows into the scale pocket, causing inflammation.
Female gill crustaceans are the only parasitic gill crustaceans. Infection with gill crustaceans can be recognised as a whitish rod-like formation with the naked eye (after carefully raising the gill cover). As the crustaceans often change their location within the gills, large surfaces of the gill tissue may be damaged.
