Levamisole is an often recommended medication for treating parasites, especially camallanus worm. Unfortunately this medication must be dosed low enough to keep the fish safe; and a this low lever it does not always kill the parasites.  More often than not it will only paralyze the parasite.  This is why it is critical to dose carefully and to do the recommended deep gravel vacs to clean up paralyzed parasites.  One added benefit of treating with Levamisole is that it gives the immune system a boost and the fish may appear to be healthy suddenly.
Treats:  Stomach worms--Haemonchus spp; Ostertagia spp; Trichostrongylus spp; Roundworms-- Nematodirus spp (which include threadworms); Cooperia spp; Nodular worms--Oesophagostomum; Chabertia spp; Hookworms--Bunostomum spp; Necator spp; and Ancylostoma spp; and Lungworms-- Dictyocaulus spp
Does NOT treat ..........Cestodes (tapeworms) or Trematodes (flatworms or flukes)
Safe for invertebrates and plants
Treatment: Feed 2-3 times a week for 3 weeks before giving fish a break.  Can also be dosed daily for 5 days, but must be done with caution.  During the 3 week break before repeating treatment continue with deep gravel vacs and maintain pristine conditions to help boost the fish immune system.  If treating camalanus worms plan on repeating 2-3 treatment cycles as these highly resistant parasites are laying eggs by the time they are noticed; and repeating treatment guarantees the newly hatched eggs.
