 Hi  All,
 
 Found  a  glow  light  tetra  dead  in  my  tank  last  evening,  took  the  dead  guy  out  and  to  my  surprise  a  leech  looking  thing  popped  out  of  the  dead  fish.  Have  never  seen  anything  like  this  before.  Bright  cherry  red  in  color  with  light  green  spike  dots  on  the  body,  Stretches  about  1.5cm.  Couple  of  days  back  had  found  another  glow  light  dead  and  found  that  his  stomach  was  empty,  similar  thing  with  a  Denisoni.  I  have  added  couple  of  pictures,  there  is  a  video,  how  this  guy  moves.  Let  me  know  if  you  need  me  to  post  the  video.
 
 What  is  this.
 Do  you  think  there  are  more  of  these  in  my  aquarium.
 How  do  i  get  them  out.
 
 Here's  the  link  :

 Yup,  that's  a  leech.  Search  the  site  for  gill  fluke  treatment,  the  same  will  work  for  leeches.

 Dear  alpine  
 If  its  gill  flukes  then  use  Flubenzadol  for  a  5  days.Use  1/4  tsp/20  gallons  every  other  day  and  50  %  water  change  every  alternate  day.
 In  my  opinion  Flubenzadol  is  a  safe  a  bit  and  easily  available  in  chemist  shops.  If  Flubenzadol  is  not  available  then  you  have  to  use  Formalin  or  KmNo4  which  I  think  using  very  risky  because  if  doses  miscalculated  then  it  could  wipe  out  the  whole  live  stock.  So  be  aware.Hope  it  (Flubezadol)  will  cure  rest  of  the  fishes.
 Regards
 Kaushik
