Hi

my fish are infected with camallanus worms :(

i managed to pull one out of a heavily infested fish with tweezers. about 5mm long thing red worm

I've been dosing kasuri wormer plus. which is flubendazole based. but the worm i just pulled out of this fish is still very much alive after 2 doses 4 days apart.

i've been reading sites with conflicting information so any help from someone who has dealt with this before is very much appreciated.

Thanks, Joel.

I have used panacur and big L in combination to wipe them out.

Panacur 25 @1ml per 40 litres

Big L @1ml per 7 litres

I dosed twice in a week then done a big gravel vac and waterchange.

Panacur comes I'm different strengths so if you don't get 25 adjust the dose to suit.

Cheers mick

Kusuri flubendazole wont kill worms immediately, they act via starving the worms in a few weeks time. For servere infection you can use what mention above pancur or big L.

I will use all the things! I want these worms gone!!!!!

I can't efficiently gravel vac my tank it's too big. Do the above meds kill or only paralise? I'm Know levamisole just paralises apparently

Thanks for the advice much appreciated :)

i found a product called "vetsence killverm pig and poultry wormer" has the same amount of active ingredient and cost only $20 at the local produce store. they also have panacur 25 but thats $50 so im just gonna use levimisole and kasuri combo and see how it goes.

Any update on what worked? I just noticed one of my gobies has them.

And from what I've read you basically need to clean everything and then start again which would mean recycling the tank is that correct?

The meds above work. As to striping and re starting the tank not true.

Just follow the instructions and you should be fine.

What makes you think its camllamanus worms?

Mainly from what I've read online reddish pink worm also that the fish looks skinny even though it's eating just fine.

Let me know if you think otherwise.

Being Australia Day there's not much I can do today anyway I was going to grab some Epsom salts and see if that helped the fish pass the worms.

don't confuse these worms with Camel Anus worms , i did that and ordered wormer and it was $465.00 and came in a 200 litre drum

Only seen whipworms treated in camels and that was with Panacur. Must have been a glorious day when we discovered these chems to kill these bloody parasites.

So what is it? What worm should I be looking to treat? And will the big L or panacure fix whatever my fish has?

I believe spongebob may have been displaying a bit of good old larrikin aussie humour on Australia Day, pineapples.

You should go with what Donny and others have been advising.

Pineapples from the pics it looks like the same worms my fish had. I did water change then dosed kasuri and big L. Repeated after 4 days, and then again after another 4 days. With50% wc's .All visible signs of worms disappeared. The fish that were worst effected have fattened up again so I'm treating that as a win

Got the kasuri wormer plus from http://livingreefaquariums.com.au

Also the big l from a produce and horse shop

Ok great I'll try that I ordered Some big L online and it should be here Friday only problem is I'm off overseas for a few weeks on Sunday so won't be able to dose so often until I get back so I hope everything's ok.

Do worms affect eggs? As they are due to hatch any day now too.

Sorry- forgot to mention- do not get the camel anus mixed up with the camel toe, this is a completely another subject altogether and needs extreme care to the point of getting advise from psychologist before even going near that area, very dangerous indeed,you have been warned unheeded advise can lead to----- MARRIAGE !!!:help:
