Hello all! This is my first post here so I’m not really sure how to utilize this forum, hopefully doing it properly

I’ve kept fish for awhile but this is my first venture into monster fish, even though it’s still a baby at the time. I purchased a “fingerling” size electric eel after as much research as I could find available. I’m primarily a reptile keeper and fairly uninformed on the process of deworming fish. With reptiles I typically reserve deworming as a last resort, as it can wreak havoc on their immune system, but with WC fish it seems to be heavily recommended. I was directed to this forum from a trusted friend who said you guys would be able to help me figure out which medication is right for my electric eel. I want to do right by him and since he’s been eating vigorously and otherwise acting completely healthy and sociable, I would rather medicate now if needed than wait until he takes a turn for the worst

I am not sure what would be good but there would probably be more info on MonsterFishKeepers

It's not different from reptiles at all, do not deworm your electric eel, especially as he is healthy.
IF he ever gets sick.. do not assume it is "worms" either.
