There probably isn't one that will kill the invertibrates you don't
want but will not harm the ones you want. But, paraistes are generally
very specific. If it were me I'd take the fis hout for a month and
let whatever parasite is in there die off. They cannpy survive without
fish and can noy live on shrimp (or each other).
