I would try some metronidazole.
Thank you very much. I will look for some today. Would it be harmful to treat the main tank as well that he came from as a precation? It has snails, female bettas and other corys.I would try some metronidazole.
Sounds like a protozoan infection that has lead to a secondary bacterial infection.
If you can find it, try either Seachem Metroplex or Hikari Metro+ (the most economical option).
I like these two over API General Cure because both have a stronger concentration of metronidazole--- which acts as a anti-parasitic and an antibacterial.
That may have been a misdiagnosis.Unfortunately by the time I came to a solid diagnosis and got the meds, she had passed away
Praziquantal was what was recommended
It's not necessary to treat the whole tank if no symptoms in other fish--- it is an opportunistic organism/infectionThank you very much. I will look for some today. Would it be harmful to treat the main tank as well that he came from as a precation? It has snails, female bettas and other corys.
Prazi can kill one internal parasite, the tapeworm.
Ah, I see, I didn't realize there were "internal flukes". What is the scientific name of this parasite?
