Can Livebearer fry get CAMALLANUS?!
Does anyone know if live bearer fry can get camallanus worms? Specificly platies. My community tank has these fricken worms and it really sucks!! I have three female platies the are going to drop fry any day this week and one of them dropped fry about 3 weeks ago. How do you tell if fry have the worms and will the mother be able to even give birth to them and will they be infected as soon as they come out? The 3 platies that are about to pop arent showing the big signs yet but i know they are infected. Only 2 smaller females actually have worms coming out of their anus but they all still eat fine! I ordered some LEVAMISOLE and FENBENDAZOLE this weekend when i first seen the symptoms and that stuff should be here by the end of the week. I plan on soaking freeze dried blood worms in the FEND med then feeding them the medicated BW and put the LEVA med right in the water. Does that sound like a treatment that will work or should i feed them both kind of meds in their food? I really need help on this and my fish will thank you!! Any kind of advice will help! Also should i treat my fry tank with the 1 month old fry in it and my betta tank too? I hear that crap spreads real fast but im not sure how eaisly it spreads!! PLEASE someone help my fish!!!
