Unfortunately I haven't had much luck yet :( It is always the same story with mine. I treat them with something as the directions imply, they start having brown poops again, a few days after treatment the white poops come back. I think I've got something resistant here. I have treated with Parasite Clear (tried it in the water and soaking food in it to feed directly to them) and a medicated food that I made myself from a dewormer (active ingredient was pyrantal pamoate). I couldn't find any meds with different active ingredients from these two around, so I have one more in the mail called Clout as a last resort. I hope you have better luck than I have. Good luck.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

Thanks! If the clout works, let me know. I added some maracyn into the water. Going to try that for a while along with medicated food.
