Unlike filter and pump problems for aquariums, parasite infestations are a harder problem to resolve. While a faulty filter or defective pump can be easily replaced with a properly operating unit, aquarium parasites take more effort to resolve because you have to look at what kind of parasites are in your fish tank, what kind of parasites are possibly infesting your fish and you have to examine your fish closely so you can get a full-spectrum solution that would cover not just actual parasites that they have, but a wider range of parasites that they may have in the future.
Another challenge regarding aquarium parasites is it is hard to pinpoint how your tank got infected. It could be from equipment introduced from elsewhere. It could also be water that your fish came with. It can come from all sorts of sources. Regardless at the end of the day, you have to deal with parasite infestation because your fish might get weakened enough that they may become susceptible to a wide range of illnesses. Thankfully there are aquarium parasite solutions that are easy to administer and have a wide range of effect that can treat a large collection of common parasites.
One such effective solution is the Hikari Prazipro from Pet Store. It has the active ingredient of praziquantel. This chemical compound is good for fighting the following organisms: flukes, tape worm, flat worms, and turbellarians. It is great for just protecting your fish from these harmful internal parasites.
