Without them, I may not have ever noticed the Camallanus worms. The parasites are thicker bodied than the ones that were in my baby snail tank. That still doesn’t help me know why the baby snails have been dying, though. I wish I knew why I am having so many problems! My water is basically good. They only thing I have had any trouble with is Nitrates. It had been around 40, but the last few weeks I have been able to keep it 20 or less. Hopefully, it will continue to drop. I am sure I will have some water issues after treating for the parasites, but will have to deal with that if it happens.
