Microbe-Lift Lice and Anchor Worm Treatment Description

Microbe-Lift Lice and Anchor Worm is for the treatment of conditions caused by Fish Lice (Argulus) and Anchor Worms (Lerea). This treatment is safe for all ornamental aquarium fish, reptiles, amphibians and mollusks, including freshwater and marine pets.

  • Treats conditions caused by Fish Lice and Anchor Worm
  • For use with all ornamental aquarium fish
  • Safe for salt or freshwater use

The active ingredient is cyromazine, an insect growth regulator, which inhibits the growth of larva and juvenile parasites. This interrupts the parasite life cycle and provides long term treatment. Use with Microbe-Lift Restore for an even more effective treatment. Will not harm biological filtration or scaleless fish.

Directions: Shake well before use. Add 1 tsp. (5 ml) per 20 gallons (76 L). Prior to the initial use of Lice and Anchor Worm, a partial water change of 20% is recommended. For best results three treatments, one week apart, should be performed with water changes prior to each retreatment.


  • Must NOT be used where crayfish and other crustaceans are being cultured.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • Not for use with fish or aquatic invertebrates intended for human consumption.

Microbe-Lift Lice and Anchor Worm Treatment Customer Reviews

Debbie, Lakeland FL on 2013/07/03

This product works well for the removal of lice but has to be repeated in a couple months so make sure you buy enough. The reason for the repeat dose is that the eggs of the lice hatch and you have a whole new batch of lice to deal with. I must emphasize that water changes are important so do not miss this step.

Another GREAT Microbe-Lift product

Microbe-Lift Lice and Anchor Worm treatment is the only safe one available (that I have been able to find anyways. Another product by another company no longer treats lice or anchor worm). I found Pet Mountain site by doing a Google search for this product. So glad they stock it! I had introduced a Cory cat to my 75 gallon aquarium that had been housed with pond fish. I did not see the anchor worms on him when I bought him. After I had him home for several hours, he came up close to the glass. YIKES! I saw the anchor worms. I got him netted and returned him to the store. I dosed my aquarium daily with Microbe-Lift Herbtana until my Anchor worm treatment arrived. I did a 25% water change as recommended and dosed with Lice and Anchor worm treatment. None of my fish have presented with the "worms". I only did the one treatment as recommended by their associates (since none of the fish ever presented). Always do a spot check daily of your fish. Many problems can be avoided. Now since many fish are kept in ponds before being shipped to the distributors, I am glad I have a product on hand for the "just in case" problem. It is also nice to see that Pet Mountain stocks my favorite Microbe-Lift products.
