Can I Take Out Camallanus Worms By Hand?

oreothing

I bought levamisole and added 4ppm to the water and made it dark. The next morning I saw 3 or 4 worms hanging out his butt by a lot, but I think I saw one moving and the snails weren't dead so I added 4ppm more. How much does it take to stop them from moving?? I haven't seen any more of the worms move but my snails are still alive. And can I take out some of the worms with tweezers or something to help my fish pass them because there are so many I don't think he can get them out by himself.

What strength was the levamisole ?
100% levamisole is dosed at 1 gram per 20g.
I believe according to Charles 13ppm is the proper dosage.
Treating Your water with Levamisole
I would not pull the worm as it will break and stay attached inside the fish.

It is 98% purity and I have put about 0.3 grams in total give or take. Should I put more in then?

1 gram treats 20g.
What size tank do you have and how much dry did you use to get to 4ppm?

The levamisole came with a 0.5ml spoon and it said it would measure out 0.3 grams, enough to get the water to 4ppm in a 75 liter tank. I halved that to suit my 10 gallon tank. On the first day I added half a spoon and then on the second day when I realized it wasn't working, I added half a spoon to make it 0.3 grams in total. I think I will have to add a little bit more now, thank you for answering!

Yea if you had just 1 gram that would have needed to be used completely to get proper dosing in 10.
I would add the rest.
Treatment is supposed to be for 3 days so just start the clock over again.
