White worm inside hengeli rasbora

I got 12 hengeli rasboras last night (shipped to me). For one, espei rasboras were advertised and it didn't say they were wild caught (but they are and I wouldn't have gotten them if I had known due to parasite issues in wild caught fish). This morning I noticed this white worm inside the flesh of the fish. Maybe 2-3 other fish have some white dots in the flesh on the clear part of the body as well.

Does anyone know if this is a parasitic worm or something else? Should I try to treat the rest of the fish? I've since euthanized the fish with the worm but with not knowing what it is I don't know how to treat the others.

I have Prazipro on hand and yesterday before they even got here I ordered Levamisole just to have in my med stash..

Feeding food treated with an anti-parasitic is your best bet. I've not had to do it so I am unclear of the correct process but I'm sure a few here have some experience doing it.
