Axolotl, from SAD :( to HAPPY :) A case of severe anchor worm infestation.

This poor guy was infected with anchor worm (Lernaea spp.). We were able to get to him in the nick of time. With initial manual removal, and then a course of medications, we were able to turn him around to a healthy axie with beautiful frilly gills!

Axie, 3 weeks later.

My, what a big smile!
