Parasites in eye?

Postby Javier A. » Thu Nov 23, 2017 10:00 am

First post here, I´m from Uruguay, but live in El Salvador from some years ago…so I had change my geos and pikes to central american cichlids that was my passion from the beginning.
I kept some species like C. Bocourti, T. Salvini and my every time favorites Parachromis, at this moment, dovii, motaguensis and managuensis, all F0.
The issue that pull me to post in this section is that recently I had noticed that my male managuensis have two little white worms in one eye, they looks like some kind of helminth worms, 2mm aprox.
Making a research here without much luck, someone say me that salt can be helpful, but I´m not sure about that…I´m most inclined to mebendazole or similar.
Any experience with this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Javier A.
