Please help. Unknown parasite possibly.

Hi all, so after overcoming coccidia for the second time, I had a fecal done on Monday just to double check. They found something they said looked like round worm but isn’t big enough to be round worm and they are unsure what it could be. She’s still eating, still pooping (mixture between solid and watery) and temps are perfect with a tube UVB. They also said there was something that looked similar to coccidia but was a little “blown out” so they didn’t know if it was just the remains of dead coccidia. If you have any idea what this could be please help! They couldn’t find anything in the parasite index or whatever it is lol. Thank you!

If it doesn't seem to be affecting him, my instinct would say to wait it out for a while. Might be good to have another check done in a few months (sooner if he starts to act lethargic or lose weight etc.). Whatever it is may clear his system on its own without intervention or be manageable.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
