The Levimisole HCL is a powder or you can buy Levamisole in the Jungle anti-parasite fish medication. You may be able to find Levamisole HCL as a pig dewormer at a farm/ranch supply store. You need to treat the entire tank with it, vacuum the tank, and repeat each week for several weeks. It is absorbed through the fishes skin. You'll only want about a 2% water concentration. If you post your tank size, I can give you the correct dosage for Levamisole HCL in your tank, but I would strongly recommend you try the anti-parasite medication with Levamisole in it first!
oh im sorry!!!! my tank is 10 gallons with 4 platys. I only see the worms coming out of the 1 female. I also have 1 live plant and 1 small amano shrimp. Do you know if they sell the Jungle anti-parasite medication at Petco/Petsmart? I will definitely get the anti-parasite medication first. I'm happy that is goes through their skin, because she is not eating at all
