I have noticed that some of my guppies have what I think is camallanus worms
..an internal parasite
I see thin red things protruding out of the vents on some of my guppies...two males from what I can see so far. They are continuing to eat fine so far and are lively, active. Not showing any signs of distress but I know that will change. Any internal parasite is never a good thing and most likely ends up being fatal especially if not treated. Of course it also will spread to the other fish.
I read up on it a little bit doing research here and there online and have found a few different suggestions about medications...fenbendazole, levamisole, junglelab tabs etc. I am going to need to treat the whole tank of course.
From what I have found out it seems that guppies are prone to this type of internal parasite
Anyone have this problem before? What did you use to get rid of this problem?
I do not want to lose my guppies or any of my other fishies. They are really beautiful and I love them.
In my 60 gallon I have a silver dollar, the 5 guppies, two corys, 1 gourami, 2 angelfish and 2 clown loaches as well. I also have some live plants...anacharis and sword plants.
Please help me out with any info or suggestion about this ugly parasite...camallanus worms.
