Flubendazole is one of my favorite meds. I always have it and Levamisole HCL, another great med, in my medical box. I define a great med as one which is effective yet mild on the fish. This usually means if you misdiagnose the likelyhood that it does harm is small. At worst the fish suffer because the med does not work. I rarely worry about using either of these meds as well as Metronidazole. I have also found that Maracyn Oxy is pretty benign as well.
Wish I was able to get the rest of those here, but fish meds ban here in Canada lol flubendazole is available from one source and its not often in stock, so I grab it while I can and hoard it lol

Flukes confirmed via microscope view, but the meds will take care of those.

Top part of the fin, note the attached fluke.

That is one nice school of fish. The orange really pops now. The body looks bluer than the pictures I've seen. Is that real or is it my eyes playing tricks on me?

You aren't imagining it, theyre very iridescent. Sometimes blue, sometimes emerald, sometimes sooty black.

could also be the lack of tannins now too, bringing out different colours
