Camallanus worm outbreak in SW Florida, seems to be coming from a wholesaler, be on alert for it folks, its not a parasite to be trifled with.

5 LFS have gotten it within a week.... look it up and be vigilant folks!

I found it in two of my new angelfish and now I will be treating every tank I have with Levamisole, along 1,500 gallons.... It is easily transferred from tank to tank and very contagious.

And that is why I am taking a 3hr road trip just to go get the Levamisole and I am running 2 treatments on all of my tanks 2 weeks apart.

2 month quarantine is needed to spot this parasite folks :shock:
