    Help with potential Camallanus Worms in Guppies

    Hi there. More than a month ago, I made a post asking if a guppy I had recently bought is pregnant. She has not had babies yet and I am concerned she is infested with Camallanus worms. I bought another guppy with this one and both looked a bit fat in the shop, but since then it's gotten much...

    What do you feed to your grindal worm?

    I feed grindal worm to my betta and guppy. And I feed cat’s artificial food to the grindal worm. There's no problem at all now, but I am very curious about what other people feed to their grindal worm. I will appreciate it if you would answer my question.

    Large cichlid tank possible parasite?

    Silly question. I have a large cichlid tank with oscars, a blood parrot, and a green terror. I saw this floating across the tank and I was wondering if this was a worm or a parasite? I thought I saw it wiggle but it could have been from the filter current. I have a video of it but not sure how...

    Can anyone ID this worm?

    Hi everyone. This is a YouTube video that I shot and uploaded on my channel. Can anyone tell me what kind of worm this is? One of my endlers died so I gave his tank a good cleaning and discovered this worm on the bottom of some tank decor. Afraid it had caused the endler's death, I took it to...

    Can anyone identify if this is a parasite?

    Hey guys... I've had my otos for around 3 months now and even when I first got them I noticed a small discoloured spot on the underside towards the tail end of one of them and he/she seemed fine so thought it might have been scar tissue. I then thought it may be eggs but now I don't think so as...

    What kind of worm is this? (Pictures)

    Hi, Over the past few days, one of my Endler guppies has been looking slightly bloated and lethargic. Yesterday, she looked pretty rough, so I euthanized her using cIove oil. I let her sit in the tub overnight to make sure she's really dead before I'd flush her. This morning, the fish was...

    What is this?

    So I just got rid of a heavy detritus worm problem. I cleaned the tank, did large water changes, and cut way back on feedings. Over the past few days I went from hundreds to only a few. Now, I find this chilling at the top of the water in the tank? What is it? It's much larger than the detritus...

    Found a worm in my tank...

    So I was doing a water change and saw a little worm on my nerite snail. I’m pretty sure it was a detritus worm, still a little unsure. I’m wondering if garlic or aquarium salt will kill them. I don’t have many options because I have scaleless fish, invertebrates

    Hi everyone,   I have a 6 gallon tank with 4 neon tetras living in it at the moment. About 9 months ago I lost a neon tetra when my water quality got low due to rotting plants.
