    Hi all.

    Powder blue has some wired white stringy worms or something to that sort attached in 3 different areas on body. cant seem to identify the sickness and hoping to get good feed back on what medication should be used. As im not fimiliar with this sickness and how serious it is. I have also checked links in the sick forum and to my opinion it looks as if its Anchor worms. Fish had been in quarantine for over 3 weeks and eating well till today i discovered this worm like things on body which is like 4mm long. Your advice would be appreciated to what it might be. Thanks.

    I hope so as well. Its just the colour is white stringy but has similar shape to that of anchor worms. It could even be leeches. Hoping nothing to serious.

    Leeches seem to be "heart shaped"...curled up against the body...so I'll say that...going by you'r description, don't think it's Leeches...

    Leeches in aquariums
