Anyone ever attempted to remove an external parsite by hand/tweezers?

I think Gossamer has one hanging a by gill I am afraid it will embed and I am really leery of powerful medicines. I tried aquarium salt It was brown and sticking out like a worm. Now it's black looks like dot but is sticking out.

If it's a parasite, then there are more than just one.. and you will need to treat the fish/tank. Trying to remove something from the gills can do a lot of damage and not something recommended.

Make sure it is a parasite and not just something that got stuck there that he ate and tried to expel. Use a magnifying glass to take a close look at it.
