PostSubject: Sick Bristlenose!! Need Help   Mon May 03, 2010 7:21 am

Hi!
All i'm new to this website and I found it might be a good place to find out whatever is going on wrong with my Bristlenose. My BN had swollen tummy & anus and I could see something moving inside its body like worms. At first I thought it was just a common worms so tried to cure it with levamasole and also Epsom salt but it did not seem to work for them. If anyone had faced the same problem and was able to cure it then please do share it with me. I would be very very thankful coz i don't wanna see them dying. I have taken some pictures but in these pics the movement of the worms like beings are not clear.

Sorry to hear about that. I've never heard of it before but I'm sure one of our "gurus" can help you.

sounds like you have a problem their mate if i was you i would use a flubendazole medication. youre going to need to repeat the dose after seven days with any heavy infestation. i would go with a discus wormer though i always use a wormer for discus when i buy any new stock just to be on the safe side.
hope you get this sorted good luck
