In reference to this archived digest that was cited as a source of info for the flatworm problem:


1) If the worms had segments and/or setae, they are not Camallanus.  Camallanids are nematodes, and are therefore not segmented or setate.  They are also usually red, not white.  If found in your aquarium, they would be in the fish and not crawling around on the glass.  

2) Be very careful using levamisole in your tanks.  It is has both toxic and carcinogenic potential.

3) It is definitely not schistosomiasis.  Schistosomes don't resemble anything described thus far, even by a long shot.
