Internal Parasite medication help
 
My pleco is thin, I haven't seen him eat in a week, his belly is slightly drawn in, he's lethargic for the most part and his fecal deposits are thin, stringy and white. I need someone to recommend an internal parasite medication (after extensive inquiry, I believe its internal, possibly a worm type). I tried petco but they only had external treatments, which I bought anyways because I'm desperate to save my little buddy. All the local petshops have slowly closed around my area, so I'm ordering online. Can someone recommend a broad spectrum internal parasite medication? I've read some, like jungle, have eatable treatments, but I would prefer to go with something else. I've dropped wafers in every few days, but he will not eat them, nor do I see him cleaning the tank, plants, etc..

thanks for any suggestions, very much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum

How about API's General Cure? It has 2 different antiparasite meds in it and is readily available. Other choices that are harder to find are prazipro and levamisole.
