So yeah woke up this morning to find that nearly every single fish in my guppy breeder is infected. I had this problem previously and thought I had it treated with some medicated Fenbendazole flakes, but apparently that either didn't work or I missed the redose at the proper point in the worms lifecycle.

If anyone has ANY experience with camallanus worms and effective treatments, I'm desperate at this point. I have a huge batch of PURPLE COBRASKIN fry I've been working ages on for ages that just showed signs of worms as the colors started to show. I do NOT want to lose these guys!!!

Please post any info, links to where I can buy medication, literally anything.

The only thing that works is Levamisole HCL, you can get it here 99% Pure Levamisole HCl Powder

How do I dose it? Also assuming it will kill the snails/shrimp but I'm more focused on saving the fish

It tells you everything to do on the site and the directions they send with the meds. It’s actually generally safe for invertes.

My 27th birthday is in November, I'd be honored if you'd make an appearance to settle an old bet with a friend.
