    3 weeks ago I noticed small redish brown things around the anus of my albino obout 5ml long and maybee 2 or 3 times the width of a hair
    My old Red Oscar's showed this often. Are you sure that it is not just poop. Mine showed this after I started feeding him larger floating pellets by Hikari Excel and Frozen Bloodworms(about once a week). They were also snacking on my firemouth fry. Bring a sample to your local store and they can diagnose the "worm" if you don't think that it is poop.
