PostSubject: worms in new LFABN   Tue May 22, 2012 5:23 am

I just three days ago purchased two female long fin albinos,once in their new tank i noticed they had little worms coming out the bums,ive used a wormer called aqua worm(praziquantel 100mg)..this was two days ago,they have done alot of poo since then but the worms are still their and look to be moving,im meant to do a 25% water change today but it seems they are still alive,how long does it take to kill them off and should i change the water today and repeat treatment..it doesnt seem to have worked..thanks Mad

make sure you clean the tank after each dose as the wormer doesnt kill the worms, it paralises them and then they can pass them. then you clean them Very Happy
