Okay, so just a while ago, I found a single red worm hanging out from my guppy's anus, which I believe, is a callamanus(sp?) worm. He didn't show any sign of it before it popped up. He was eating fine, pooping fine, even aggressively does the mating dance on all other fishes. I did have 1 guppy a a little over 6 months ago which had callamanus worms. I didn't do any medication before but didn't get any worms on my other fishes up until now, and the one that got it was the newest guppy (~2 months).
I'm hoping it isn't these worms and I'm just overreacting since the guppy didn't show any symptoms, but it definitely looked like a callamanus worm. Red thin worm approx 2mm out of his anus.
I've read various medication and
fenbendazole levamisole as the "best". Other medications just somewhat stuns them and stuff. If these are the dreaded worms, can you guys give me a good list of meds?
P.S. I have an assassin snail, a few shrimps and tons of MTS, so medication without affecting them is preferred. Medicated food is also preferred (if effective) over those meds with dosage and stuff.
EDIT: Found a post where this guy says Levamisole will kill the worms more effectively than fenbendazole.
