- Poor eating habits
- White feces
- Treat for emaciated (thin or skinny discus)

Levamisole kills worms by paralyzing their organ functions, slowly diminishing the worms ability to feed or multiply. Secondly, parasitic worm eggs are uneffected due to it's protective outer shell. Thus, it is paramount to continue treatment for the duration of time as specified in order to kill off newly hatched parasitic worms.
Please note, that Levamisole is ineffective under exposure to lighting. Best practice is to medicate your discus fish during night with aquarium lighting off.
