Figure 8 Puffer seems to have internal parasites

cnmichels

Hi all. I have two figure eight puffers in a 20 gal long tank, with brackish water (1.005 SG). I got them both about 2 months ago. One has been thriving and growing, the other has stayed smaller. I figured one was just the alpha, or whatever, but recently the small puffer, I call him Six, has had a really bulgy, contorted belly. I've started treating with PraziPro to try to kill the parasites, but today he seems to be much worse, all listless and resting on things. Any ideas?

Water parameters:
Nitrates 20
Nitrites 0
Ammonia 0
SG 1.005
pH ~7.8
