I'm not 100% on it, but that's only because I have no experience with them. I have a thread in the Diseases and Emergencies section, someone replied that it might be them, and after looking around/doing my own research, they do seem a likely culprit. Here are the best picture I posted, in case anyone here knows anything about them:
Just as a note, I will be posting a new thread soon with the name of the worms in hopes that someone with experience will help me with this. I can't lose Tintrí :( I really really hope that ADF's can't get them. Skinny is still so small and fragile looking.
No, Chocolate Betta, I have no idea what caused the worms. The only thing I can think of is maybe he had them when I bought him. They can stay internal for a few months (as far as I read), and only now have I seen the adults protruding.
I did manage to get some Tetra Parasite Guard (or something like that... I can't remember exactly what it was). I'm thinking about using the tabs as both an external/water treatment, and soaking his food in it. Does this idea sound good/bad? I know some medicines are best used if the food is soaked in it, but I don't know about the Tetra stuff.-
