First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong section. Now, on Thursday I began treating my goldfish with Hikari Prazipro in preparation for his eventual move to my new bigger aquarium. I wanted to make sure he was as healthy as possible and free from parasites before I moved him into his brand new home. I'm SO GLAD I decided to do this, because tonight after I was finished with my daily water change I noticed this THING floating in the tank water. I quickly grabbed a pipette and sucked it up and put it into a test tube (I know I'm weird for just having test tubes in my house). It's clearly some type of disgusting worm, and it's about 2" long which is longer than the body length of my little goldfish It looks like it's kind of flat and wide on one end and pointed on the other end. Does anyone know what it is??? I'm assuming I should just continue the prazipro treatment? I'm doing three days with meds and two days without, how many cycles do you suggest I go through? Because my tank still isn't cycled I have to water change every day so I've been changing 90% of the water (with gravel vacuuming) every day, and then I read the whole dose of prazipro to the tank after the water change. Except for the two days when I water change without adding any of the prazipro back into the water. So nasty
Looking at one of my snails I am seeing something that might be a parasite or worm. Whatever it is I don’t think it is supposed to be there. Also to note there was another on this snail further up on the filler but it is now gone and the feeler has experienced what seems to be some damage as a result. They are in a QT tank by themselves. Also I have several small thin hair like worm in the tank that I have been fighting ever since i moved the snails into it. I have used parzipro and even salt in the tank to try and fix this. I have also emptied the tank sterilized the plants, filter, and rocks in a bleach solution, also done two 90-100% water changes and cleaned the sand twice. Also have am not adding any food of any sort but I can’t seem to get rid of the worms. From doing some research on the internet i thought they were detritus worms but I’m not sure now as what I did should have killed them out right? Are the small hair like worms and the white egg or worm like spot on the snails related? Here are some pics a one of the snails.
