Ken and anyone else out there,

This topic came up in Seattle about a year ago.  The rec. treatment then 
was piperzine  ( levamisole was on the list as well).
I was told this is actually spread or can be caught from feeding live 
tubifex.  Do you know anything about this.

I have heard over and over not to feed live tubifex to Apisto's, never 
have fed them at all, but curious what everyone else's experience is.

I know David Soares does not like to feed them at all.
