Just joined this forum. I've been reading various threads and following the awesome advice from this forum for some time now so thank you!
Today my kids and I noticed that 2 of our mollies have what look like stringy long parasites hanging on to them. One has 2 (one on the side and one near the tail) and the other has one.
After hours of research, I "think" they may be anchorworms but I don't really know to be honest. One of the platies was also behaving a bit weirdly and looked like he had a swelling on the upper part of his body above his head but he seems to be better now so IDK if this was a real issue.
Otherwise the tank and the other occupants seem to be quite happy. The last time we added anything to the tank was when we added some plants and shrimp about 2 weeks ago so I suspect something came with that batch of stuff and is now infecting the fish.
Would love to get advice on the best way to deal with these issues.
3 salt-and-pepper corys,
a rabbit snail (and a baby rabbit snail!),
a mystery snail,
a nerite snail,
9 neocardinia shrimp
and a medium densely planted tank with about ~20 species of plants.
Thank you in advance for any advice!
