Hi All - Can anyone give me some information on the best way to worm or de-parasite a tank.Have a 4' tank with a lge oscar,have been buying some live feeders to feed him (cause he gets lazy just eating pellets),have noticed him being very lethargic lately & actually lost one fish & now there appears to be some small white worm type of things climbing around the inside of the glass.have treated the tank with some Complete water treatment & some methylene blue but neither of these products say they kill unwanted guests.

Any help would be much appreciated :?::?::?:

yep sounds like planaria , up your water changes and cut back feeding and it should clear up

also feeders are nasty for Oscars they contain little to no nutrients , if he is getting bored with pellets then id suggest other sorts of live/frozen food ( beefheart cubes from the LFS are good and white bait as well )

what he said, planaria comes about from over feeding and not cleaning the gravel enough

dont forget is ya can , move the rocks and vacume under them, there is always heaps of detrius under rocks
