Callamus worms in Kribensis

Postby GVSailor » Sat Mar 03, 2012 8:57 pm

Does anyone know of an effective treatment for callamus worms? I have a pair of kribs that developed them a year ago. I treated them with a commercial goat wormer and it got rid of the worms. I didn't have any sign of them until about 3 weeks ago. I tried the old medicine and it isn't doing anything this time. Any suggestions?

Levamisole or if you can't find it, Fenbendazole. You might need to find a sympathetic veterinarian.
There are some dog de-wormers that may contain the needed drugs as well.

Levamisole is the only tx that works. I had a bad outbreak of that parasite. Fenben will not touch them at all. Levamisole is not that hard to find on the internet. Dosing has to be exact though.

How do you think it got introduced into your tank?

I found the medicine and the fish got through it.

It came in through some rams i got from petsmart early on. I isolated it in one tank and thankfully it didn't spread at all.
