    So I noticed what looked like red worms being excreted from one of my guppies and a couple of rasboras. They didn't really look like pictures I saw of camallanus worms though, they looked more like bloodworms, which had been fed to them today. Should I be worried about camallanus worms, or is this just bloodworms passing through their system?

    There's currently nothing coming out of the fish now, but if I notice it tomorrow I'll take a picture. I hope I am overreacting and it's just the frozen bloodworms passing.

    Maybe nematode worms? I treat all my fish with Prazi Pro. I don't wait for them to be infected. If you do treat them, repeat the treatment in about 5 days to kill eggs that may be hatching. And keep your gravel clean.
