one thing after another...

So I just ruled out I have callamanus/ camallanus(I've seen it spelled both ways?) Worms... On my favorite blue ram I ordered fenbendazole, I couldn't find leviwhatsit... I hope this work.
So I have her in my "hospital tank" with I threw together this morning.

She is the only one in my tank that I can physically see worms coming out. So I have her in prazipro water right now til fenbendazole gets here, and if those bugger's drop any eggs at least it won't be in my main tank.

I've never dealt with this before. Anyone have experience or tips on getting rid of this? Or moral support :/
Thanks happy holidays

I used fenbendazole and levamisole when the fenben didnt work. Whats bad about fenbendazole is that it needs to be ingested, wich makes things difficult. I suggest trying your best to find levamisole, it worked for me after a week.

My tank had 3 individuals showing worms, and I caught all 3 of them in nets (a rummy nose, an angel fish, and a serpae tetra) after I did so, I got some tweezers and pulled out all of them worms from each. After that, and the levamisole, bye bye camallanus there were no deaths involved.
