Hi guys,So I just switched a light from an acitinic (the blue light) to a regular T5 HO because I just learned that actinic does nothing for my plants. Anyways it's been a few days and since then one…Continue
The other day the power went out and I really messed up my aquarium from it. When the power finally came back on my filter wouldn't start. So I took the top off the canister filter before shutting the water off from the tubing. What a disaster!!!! I had about 5 gallons of water on the floor and on the the electrical power outlet that everything for the aquarium was plugged into. So nothing was working and I had to clean up my mess.

A quick tank update. All my fish are doing great after I got rid of the worms. My jungle val is growing out of control so I had to cut a lot of it back. I stopped using DIY CO2 and going to switch to Seachem Excel.

There have been no sign of the worms. I lost quite a few fish and I have started restocking my aquarium. Last weekend I got 4 German Rams and lost one.

I'm pretty sure the first treatment killed all the worms.
I still have one more treatment to do tomorrow, but I'm not doing that large of a water change…Continue

Unfortunately when I got back there were more dead fish :( Anyways, I did about a 75% water change and added the levamisole. Hopefully I will start seeing some dead worms being expelled from the fish and I can save the rest of the fish. I will keep updating with the results of the treatment.
