So my search for the medicine Levamisole HCl, was a bust. Couldn't find it in almost every store that I went to. So my search for it goes on online. I know urls aren't allowed, but is Ebay trustworthy enough for the supply of Levamisole HCl?

- Levamisol 200mg/100l for 24 hrs you have the calmarus worm! 100%!

You need to do the treatment like 3 times over 6 weeks. Easy to get on ebay but i think you want the 100% stuff not the 99% or lower.

Bad new guys, both of my angels in my 30 gallon have died after being treated with Levamisole HCl. That's rather saddening

So sorry to hear
Their immune systems could of been compromised by whatever mysterious growth thingy that was going on with them, and just not strong enough. C worms are nasty enough problem by itself and take a toll weakening fish.

I would check the dose, and continue the full treatment on your remaining fish before I would add anymore/replace fish in your tank.

Just curious how they died. Any symptoms, behavior?
The drug itself shouldn't have affected the fish. It boosts immunity actually.

I am unable to actually look after this tank while I'm in Richmond, so I have my brother help me out with medicating and looking after the tank when I'm gone. After medication, the fish were fine then started to slowly collapse, become out of breathe then died :\. What's weird is that none of my other fish in the tank seem to be having problems. It's just mainly the angelfish in the tank. None of the neons, danio erythromicrons, danio choprai, corydoras or bn pleco seem to be showing any problems.

The worms are more mature/bigger mass in a larger fish's system- larger worms are harder to pass
