Plecostomus with a worm? HELP!
I just purchased an "established" tank yesterday. I noticed this morning that the plecosomus had a white thing on his belly. It looks like it goes into his body. I can't find pictures online of another pleco with this so I can't figure out what it is. I am not able to take pictures either. I don't have any parasite meds. I only have marcyn 2 from my bettas. What is wrong with him and what can I do? I did order some meds yesterday.
Is the fish still eating fine? Is it thin? For internal parasites, metronidazole and praziquantel are often recommended. Flubendazole should cover a wider range of parasites.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
yea, I feel like an idoit. It was his "anus" lol. Sorry not sure if you would call it an anus. Poor little guy was constipated. I figured it out when he finally went to the bathroom. He had the "little white worm" (lol) hanging there for 3 days. I've that Ive had him for a couple of weeks, I've gotten to know his personality. He will be really active for a couple of days. Swimming around a lot. Then he hids for a couple of days.
