Does anyone know what this is? It looks like a white string stick inside the gill. This thing half as long as the fish.

Not that I can tell. The thing was gone for a little bit and now it's back but not sticking out as much.

It looks like some type of nematode. If you haven't wormed the fish since you got it, it may be a good idea. 


If nobody came back from the future to stop you, it wasn't that bad of a decision.

I've treated with prazipro a year ago when I got him. Then he ate nothing but frozen fish. I actually treated him with prazipro a month ago too.

Prazi doesn't kill all nematodes. You should treat with a double medicated cure like API General Cure, it's also got Metronidazole, so whatever the Prazi misses, the Metro kills.

Now when you say salmon is it fresh or frozen salmon? Because recently the FDA has disclosed it's findings of species of tapeworm in wild Alaskan salmon species.
