Hi,

you can use Trichlorfon/Neguvon it's a livestock wormer, you should be able to find it at animal produce stock feed places

Increasing the salt will help but is best to bath fish in 15g/L for 15 - 60 minutes, twice a week with treatments 2-3 days apart, the larvae may not all die with just salt.

A Potassium Pernanganate bath maybe effective but you need to neutralize it with Hydrogen Peroxide so you don't O.D your fish after bath is finished or 100% water change.

Keep an eye out for any sores/infection around the worms and if they don't fall off when dead you can pull them off (dead or alive).

Hey,

I had anchor worm in my turtle tank from some rainbows I caught up North. I tried all sorts of medications, nothing really worked...

Up the salt as much as possible and ramp the heat up to 30deg. Also starve the fish for 4-5 days, as the worms drop off, the fish will eat them.

Worked for me.

Cheers
