Hi,
I am looking for information on how to treat fish with internal parasites.  The only information I can seem to find is about products not available in this country such as seachem metroplex and focus.  Are there other options available as I have read the in water treatments are not very effective for internal parasites.
Thanks

Sounds like capillaria,(parasite worm)
Best treatment for this is probably levamisole,you can get this from amazon and eBay ,
