So a week ago my gourami died turning the night and i woke up to im being eaten by parasites. I screamed and cleaned everything that day. I then let it all dry and re did my tank and im letting it cycle for a new betta for this tank. I had 4 mossballs in there but when i put them in a bowl of water to the side they seem to have brought the parasites with, even though i rinsed and squished the mossball and put it into freshwater. So what do i do to the mossballs so i can add them back without killing my new betta? And what was this parasite...?

I'd put them in a solution of potassium permanganate for a couple of days.

Not parasites. Scuds or the like. Not harmful to live fish, but almost every living thing in the tank will eat dead fish.

I already replied to this question elsewhere, but in case you don't see it, try a solution of potassium permanganate.
