How to cure tapeworm/internal parasite?

Lebeeze

I have 2 fish, 1 snow white mbuna and the other an Albino tiger Oscar, that seem to be suffering fro. Tapeworm/sunken belly.
The snow white I've had for around a year and has barely grown and has the same sunken looking belly.

The Oscar I just purchased a week ago , is a baby still, but has the same wierd sunken shape in
It's belly.

The reason I suspect an internal parasite is they both eat like savages as soon as food is put In the tank, and lately I've been feeding them more often(3 or 4 times per day) to try and faTten them up but no change yet.

I also live in Canada so medication is scarce for me, so with that in mind how do I cure these 2 fish?

Not sure how to do withiut meds, but General Cure or Paracleanse are ones off the top of my head. Can't remember the active ingredients, but if you look them up, you may be able to find a work-around.

Yeah I was looking for paracleanse and couldn't find any. Worst case scenario I can use ebay but I'd rather not spend 60 for a $15 bottle of medicine
