it took a week for the levamisole to get here. But we also had to wait for it to cross the boarder.

I will admit that I have seem about 50% mortality of bettas with the worm showing. Hopefully your guy fairs better, I will keep my fingers crossed for you!

Well, lost the betta today. I'm going to order the levimasole with my next paycheck, and keep an eye on my other betta. If he starts to show the signs I might just euthanize him so he won't suffer like the other did.

Does anyone happen to know if snails can be a host to these worms?

I was informed that snails don't carry this worm,
However I found that to be very untrue.
Snails can carry these worms.

However This worm doesn't need a host to complete its cycle.

You can treat Snails with levimasole the same as fish.

I have hundreds of snails and only lost a few during treatment.
