    Anchor worms!

    To my horror I discovered anchor worms on my newly-acquired fantail goldfish. No I didn't do quarantine tank and I should have. cocky I guess

    Parameters

    heavily planted 125

    ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrates less than 5. Weekly water changes.

    Black water additive once weekly light tea color.

    72 deg f

    Experienced fishkeeper

    Seasoned tank

    Tank is a bunch of bumbly leftover fish from my aquatic science class all mixed together.all friends and compatible.

    So, is the tank infected or is the fish infected?

    And how do I proceed? I ordered some stuff from Amazon it should be here today

    should I bother setting up a quarantine tank or just treat the whole tank? Will it kill the bacteria in the filter?

    Yikes!!! Thank you!

    So how did it go? Did you quarantine or medicate the tank? Did your other aqua pets end up infected or no? Is everything still alive?

    Still have them. On dimilin now. Microbe lift did not work. Anecdotally, it seems that once they have them they don't get them again so there may be a resistance thing going on.

    dimilin for a month seems to have worked. going for overkill. if anyone needs any dimilin, i have enough for the next century.
