I had camallanus (? spelling) worms earlier this year and treated the
'bows using ivermectin and had no sign of worms again until this week.
The worms are heavily infested in only the female G. incisus (at least
visible infestation) who are also the ones who always eat the ants that
I drop into the tank. IS this coincidence? are the ants (wild, large
black) the source of the worms?
They really like the ants but I will stop feeding them if they are the
source of the worm infestation. How about mosquitoe larvae? will they
carry the worm eggs too? or anything else my fish would be better off
