What the heck is sticking out of my fishes anus? These guys are in quarantine at the moment. I am guessing it some type of worm/parasite. How to treat?

OK, after some searching I have come to believe they are Camallanus worms. I cannot find a supplier for levamisole that actually has any in stock, so I am going with Panacur. ANy one have any advice on its use for the fish? It comes as granuals with a concentration of 222mg/g of fenbendazole. The packets I am getting are 4grams each (comes in a pack of 3 packets)
Not sure what to do, but doesn't clout treat worms?
I had the same thing in one of my tanks. I used jungle parasite clear. Fixed it right up.
I think you're on the right track. Does the medication have praziquantel in it?

Panacur is fenbendazole. I was planning on treating concurrently with either JPC or one of the others that did contain praziquantel. All the reading I have seen on these worms seem to point to using either levamisole (which nobody seems to have in stock) or fenbendazole and praziquantel concurrently.
G has both of those meds on their website. Give them a call tomorrow before 5pm EST (closing time).
