With him gone, I've got an empty 6.6 gallon tank... which I am tempted to turn into a Frog habitat. So, some good may come out of his passing. I won't be doing anything with it until the first of January, though, so I've got time to plan.

Tintri officially has received his first batch of treatment. The next few days will be critical in telling whether or not the levamisole is doing its job. Hopefully he'll have his frog companions back in a few weeks, and I won't have to worry about these worms anymore.

I sure hope so! It looks like he may be passing some of the worms (as they're sticking out a whole lot more), but I'm not entirely sure, having never dealt with these things before.

I've never had to deal with worms personally. . . to be honest, parasitic worms are pretty much my worst nightmare when it comes to fish. *wince* I have a parasite phobia, but I guess we all do.

But from what I've seen following other people who HAVE had this problem, they should start falling out. You *can* speed the process by removing them yourself once you can get to them. *blegh* But once they start to pass, just be sure to clean the tank constantly to keep them (and their eggs) from re-infecting the fish. . .

Planning on keeping it clean. I've got 5g of levamisole, and it only takes about .1g to treat a 10 gallon tank, so I've got plenty of the stuff.

Watty, you're doing great! I think you're doing everything you possibly can be doing - if he can make it through, you'll get him through this - keep up the good work, and keep us posted!
