Unfortunately, these things come with the hobby. However I am very grateful for everyone who helped me today. I am more hopeful now, knowing that I am getting advice from numerous experienced aquarists.No problem! We’ve all been in your shoes with the agonizing decision of to medicate or not. I once had internal parasites that got into my tank via snails -__- It took me like two months to get rid of them.
Sometimes they also get infections if they cut themselves eating abrasive foods like snails or clams. The shell could’ve cut the fleshy side of his beak and become infected from there. If you’re worried about stressing him, you can also add stress coat to the dip and the tank itself. Also, it helps to turn off the lights or keep them as dim as possible.
