Ghost shrimp, quarantine & parasites

Lenae98

If a ghost shrimp is harboring camallunus can it survive without a vertebrate host by indefinitely living inside the shrimp? So I am asking if I keep my ghost shrimp quarantined long enough will any parasites that would infect my fish die off because they can't complete their life cycle? If so how long would that take? Especially concerned with camallunus.

Your ghost shrimp will not harbour camallunus,
The only one to be concerned of with ghost is Horse hair and that can be seen inside the shrimp and if there is one inside your shrimp is already dead so its best to euthanize now

Will horse hair infect my fish or snails? There's no treatment?
