So My Fish Had Gill Flukes...

After some research, I can only assume my fantail had gill flukes. It was lethargic and had excessively red gills. Pimafix and melafix combined did not treat it, and also my fish seemed to have trouble breathing for awhile.

My only problem now is my other fantail. I'm afraid that the gill flukes may have transferred, but I can't be sure. Is there a way to make sure or to prevent it? Does gill flukes survive in the tank or does it need a host? Should I be salting my tank incase?


Edit: Oh drat. My other fantail has started yawning a bit. Could this be gill flukes settling in?
