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.
