You can use 'No Planaria' with shrimp/shrimplets. Canadian Aquatics sells it.

Panacur (Fenbendazole) will also work. The pre-dissolved solution is the easiest to work with. You will need to get the product through a vet (which isn't always easy, depending on the vet).

Respectfully,

Did you see any planaria after the doses, effox? I think I saw my first one last night. Which leads me to ask, would Mulberry leaves also lead to planaria? I haven't been feeding them anything else lately.

I did a good soil cleaning after the final treatment. I suppose leaves could be a source of food, so possibly.
