"One type of nematode that infests fish is the camellanus nematode, which looks like a red thread hanging out the fish's anus. It can be deadly if left untreated, particularly in small fish. However, it is treatable with levamisole, and requires two (or more) treatment cycles, two weeks apart. The subsequent treatments gets rid of any new nematodes that have hatched since the last treatment. So far as I have discovered, the only place to buy the levamisole packaged for aquarium use is from Charles Harrison at He's got an article about it and how it was developed for use in aquariums (he was one of the developers) at There is another good article, with lots of good scientific information, at She gives a number of sources of levamisole packaged for use with other animals, and explains how to figure out the correct dosage for aquarium use.
