I'm treating fish with levamisole and am unclear how long camallanus can live OUT of the tank - on buckets, siphons, tweezers, etc. I don't want to fix the tank and reintroduce it from equipment.

If eggs die quickly without a host I'll just let everything dry out. If not, and I need to bleach sanitize everything in between treatments, I will.

Any advice? Thanks.

They can live weeks in water without a host. I'd recommend bleach treatment and a total dry out of equipment between water changes.
