    Hi everyone,
    I have a pair of Bolivian Rams. I've had them for 3 weeks. Last night I've noticed the males has 2 or 3 very thin red hairs coming out of his anus. I'm 90% sure this is Camallanus worms unfortunately. I've already ordered Levamisole HCL which should be here by the end of the week. Other than the hairs he is snowing no other symptoms. No bloating, inflammation and he still has a healthy appetite. No other fish have symptoms either. I've attached the best pictures I could get. Thanks in advanced.

    Nothing Else i know of Looks like Camallanus worms. I'd say you're lucky to have caught it before it caused major damage. I'd treat as fast and aggressive as possible to prevent further damage.

    Thanks Madagascariensis. That's what I feared.

    Here are the above pictures again (they didn't post right in the OP.)
