    Our fish has had wasting and bloat (..not like dropsy but also not like pure constipation) for awhile. We ultimately suspected worms. Maybe camallanus. But not what we expected. Within an hour of feeding Fish fenbendazole dewormer medication, he had this thing hanging from him that sort of...
  2. Betta Fish Care
    Hello I left for about a week and left my fishie, Casper, in the hands of my neighbor along with care instructions. I came back to a fairly clean tank but little white worm-like things crawling all over the tank glass mainly near the water's surface. I was spooked and siphoned the tank and...

    Hey there, I have noticed in V-Tale's tank some strange little friends. They have been more present now that I've got a better sense of what I'm looking at and knowing now it's not plant material from the Camboba. Also with feeding and not over feeding. It is a planted aquarium, plants came...

    Hey there! I am kind of a newbie in this world. I have had my Betta for around two months and there is a white thing that has been growing for like a month already in his ventral fin. Do you think this might be an anchor worm or some other parasite? He is right now on a 5 gallon, heated and...

    Hello all I got a new betta about 3 days ago and have noticed that there appears to be something either attached to the fin of the betta or the fin has some how knotted together almost. I’ve attached a picture so you can see what I’m talking about. Hoping there’s someone out there that could...

    As of right now, I can't get any good pictures, my betta is darting around too much, I'll try later:) Today I noticed a brown worm thing hanging between Draco's (clamped) pectoral fins. It looks similar to a bloodworm. Also, I think he has ammonia poisoning, so I did a 100% change today. Here's...

    Hi! I have a 2.5 gallon planted tank with a betta and a nerite snail. This morning, I decided to get new live plants to replace the ones that were in there previously (they were algae magnets, as my tank got over the algae about a month ago). I took all the plants out and let the filter run...

    I have determined my 5 guppies have anchor worm. I am not sure how I would treat them and also treat/disinfect the tank. Has anyone had this issue or know how to help treat and disinfect successfully? Info - 10 gallon tank Filtered Aerated Decently - densely covered with fake/live plants. 50%...

    I cleaned my betta tank today, like i do every week. But this time i added something to the filter to that it wouldn't disturb the water to much. So i sat there for around 20 mins and then went to lunch. When i came back i watched it again and i saw a white worm swimming in the tank. I thought...

    So i just got these cubes of frozen bloodworms to feed my male and he did not even touch a single one of them! I've tried dried frozen before and he did eat but why not the frozen ones?

    I recently bought some new ghost shrimp for my tank, I happened to stumble across a video of a ghost shrimp with a horsehair worm on youtube. After watching the video I realized that the shrimp in the video looked like it had exactly the same thing I saw in one of my new shrimp.:shock: When I...
