if you cant see this i will try another way
Hard to see. If it is, you can pull it off using tweezer and monitor the rest of tankmates.
Once you get it/them off and still alive, run test by adding anchor worm(s) to few containers with tank water and add different amt of med (whatever it may be which claims to treat anchor worm) to different container to see what and how high the concentration had to be to kill them.
What I found when I was young was that meds did not kill these in recommended dosage. It took few days to kill them at much higher concentration which may have also killed all fish. Well from my trial and errors.
But again, these trials and errors were performed more than decade ago and more effective meds might be available today along with same meds I used to use..
these sort of things are bound to happen to anyone no matter how well you maintain the tank.
Hope to see your tank continuously serves its purposes for long time to come.
here are the links to see the different pic i took of this fish. different angles and views i hope this helps to get a better idea about what i am dealing with
