Anchor worms


Have my pond going for over 15 yrs and my nephews put some bait fish and fresh water clams in it last yr. Now I have Anchor worms all over and they are killing my goldfish and babies.
Anyone with this problem and any good solutions? I have read a little on Dimilin but not sure if this will work if you just add it to the water.
Thanks

i had some (massive) Celebes rainbows come in for SE asia with this affliction. i hadn't seen it in many years. I hit the tank with some praziquantel and it took care of the problem . i didnt lose any plants in the tank, mind you it as only vals and swords.
