Nightmares in the Dirt Conversion (Callamanus worms)

So all the activity and changes has left my poor fish over stressed, and now...I have a seriously nasty case of Callamanus worms in about 80% of my fish.


I've lost a lot of amano shrip as well due to unknown reasons still. The few survivors have been moved to another tank as the medicine is not invert save. The medication I'm using is a JBL product called Nemol, and I'll do an update vid soon with info on the disease and the cure.


Fingers crossed all.
