Gill Flukes??

I was pointed to gill flukes as a possible cause for my Blue Rams 'condition.' I noticed that the ram has been opening and closing it's gills at a fairly rapid pace. The water parameters are fine. I posted all of them in another thread. I haven't seen gill flukes before and wonder if there's a way to determine if the ram is inflicted by the parasite.
