I'm dealing with anchor worms that I actually got form a petsmart as well... My tequila sunrise female just looks so sad.. I feel so bad for her and yesterday I had to pick 4 really big anchor worms off of her and so she's been bleeding on and off and yeah.. just a horror story.. The lesson I learned - don't buy fish from them anymore. lol

As far as helping her out.. I'd put salt in the tank if you don't already have some.. I noticed that after putting some salt in my tank yesterday, she's already doing a lot better off... I've seen a lot of places to put salt in the guppy tank..

Fish keep me busy why my SO is deployed =)

If you google anchor worms, you can find a lot of good ways to treat for them. I think salt is one of them; copper can also kill parasites (but it kills snails and shrimp too).

-The more I learn about fish, the more I <3 them-
-If I help you or provide good info, please feel free to add to my rep points!-
