I had 2 female guppies die within 12 hrs of each other last night. One died after giving birth, the other was within about a week of dropping. Both got real lethargic, listless, and were dead within 6 hrs. There were no external signs of parasites, fungi, etc.
When pulling their bodies out, I noticed some sort of thin worm wiggling around in the current. They are about 1/2" long, and real thin, about the dia. of a thick human hair. When I netted them out, I can see they are red. When in the tank, they would sometimes latch onto a plant for a few minutes.
Sorry, no pictures.
Any ideas about what they are? Any suggested treatments? Water was on the warm side, about 78*F. I am doing a 90% water change right now. Help would be appreciated.
