I came across this article on BBC yesterday on making a 200x microscope from a webcam. 200x should enable you to see flukes, costia, ich, and other parasites from what I understand. There are very clear step by step pictures on how to make this in the slide show for anyone who wants to give it a try!

That's a very cool project. It reminds me a bit of this. Kind of amazing what you can do with outdated technology. :)
