Unhappy Sick pea puffer! Prazipro? !

My male pea puffer is so skinny I can't stand it! I'm pretty sure he's got some kind of worms, I've found planaria in the tank I use to grow his food and after doing a day of research I procured some prazipro and dosed all my tanks accordingly. I pray to God my little male can pull through, he's not devouring the snails that are his staple, the two pea puffers I aquired were caught from the wild from the pamba river in India and I tried to get them to eat many different types of live and dead food then I threw in a few pond snails and they just gobbled them all up so now I've done much work learning how to keep a steady cycle of pond snails to feed their large appetites for these past two and a half years. This is the first time either of the puffs have gotten sick. I have had to segregate the male from the female because he's very greedy and won't let the poor female eat. But now they each have their own tank and all was well until I noticed the male rapidly loosing his bulk. I just hope the prazipro works for my little guy. He's still active and I've been hand feeding him I just hope he pulls through.
