Piperazine (sold as Pipzine capsules) works well against Camallanus. So does
Tetra medicated anti-parasite flakes and Pepso flakes, fed for a week or two.
All will kill shrimp, including Amano Shrimp. My ordinary Ramshorn snails
survived Piperazine, as have miscellaneous fry and plants. There is a
warning against its use with invertebrates, so snails might be partially
affected, but they are still alive in my tank today, several years later.
