I have used prazipro without any negatives, but it doesn't treat ALL internal parasites so it may or may not be effective.

Levamisole treats all internal parasites, but you won't find it in a "fish" formula, if you can find it at all. I think some bird medications would be your best bet. The med paralyses the parasite, so that the fish can pass it.

That's all I got.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
