    Ok, so after having my platinum gourami for coming upo to 5 months now, I discovered these thin red worms sticking out of her bum (she was the 'newest" fish in my 45 gallon tank, none of the others show any signs of anything). A quick internet search and a look at google images confirmed my fears of a parasite problem... I got some Aviverm (as recommended by the allmighty internet) and treated the whole tank at the suggested dosage last night. This morning, all fish seemed happy and active (and hungry), and the gourami was without any visible worms... Major vacuuming and water changes tonight...
    I would like to know, has anyone on there ever had these things in their tanks? Were they difficult to get rid of? what treatments did you use?
    I seem to be getting all sorts of different accounts from the internet - from "fish can live with these worms for years" to "all your fish will be infected and dead within weeks, by the time you see worms it is already too late", and anything inbetween.

    Good for you for jumping to action and getting these fish cleaned out. Who likes to think their fish may have worms all their lives? ewwww Kinda like puppies, it's best to worm. Good job.
