nabokovfan87 Posted June 18, 2022 Share Posted June 18, 2022 (edited) Hey everyone, I Have been treating my tank as shown in my journal pre-emptively for internal parasites simple because of lethargy and fish not really behaving the way I thought they normally should. I did recently add some otos as well, added directly to the tank because I knew I was going to treat everything shortly. So, that being said I did round 1 of paracleanse. On the 12th was when I did the WC and when I was giving the fish a break. That being said it's 5 days later and I just was looking at the amano shrimp Zoeys floating and I saw several worms in the water column. I can't identify them, I can't take a photo reliably and get a clear shot to ask for help but they are about 1/2" long and not on the glass. They don't look like detritus worms that I've seen before, smaller. I assume these were internal to the fish and a treatment would take care of them? I plan to follow up with a round of expel-p as well. Should I start the next round of paracleanse tomorrow for the sake of getting rid of these guys or do I need to wait 1.5 more days? What would you do? Would you add salt whenever the next round of meds are added? I really appreciate it, first time for me on this one and I definitely am not excited I found the worms Update, thankfully, I did manage to capture it. Update #2: Re-reading this. https://www.aquariumcoop.com/blogs/aquarium/fish-parasites Looks like I'm scheduled to wait 8-9 more days before adding more meds. Not sure what to do here. 😞 Edited June 18, 2022 by nabokovfan87 added video / article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
