Hi thanks for your reply. I have tried the two medications I’ve mentioned before and followed the instructions and even did esha ndx treatment again after two days even though I was supposed to wait a week I couldn’t. The fish didn’t pass any worms during the second dose and I kept checking. Tonight they passed two more worms but I can see they have still loads inside them.
The vets listed on the link you provided are miles away from where I live and I’m not sure they can prescribe anything from speaking to me on the phone?
The pet store have now took the decision to ignore me and I’ve contacted them via email, and over social media platforms. I was even put through to head office and the woman on the phone sounded like it was a massive inconvenience to her and yawned several times while I spoke.
I will try the other link for USA vets but can they prescribe medication?
I read somewhere that these worms bury into the muscle of fish and don’t budge which might explain why I’m struggling to get rid of them.
I don’t know if it’s too late for my fish or not I’ve never felt so helpless.
One of the fish looks like it’s bleeding under the skin I just can’t beleive how distressed they are and I can’t do anything.
If and when they die I won’t ever get fish again, I never knew half the stuff I’ve learned and how difficult it is when fish need veterinary help.
I’ve attached a photo of a worm the fish passed earlier, with a bit of a pea in the pot and something else. But apparently it’s only poop said the aquarist for the pet shop.
