Can young fish carry gut parasites?

Hi all,

I am planning on getting a couple of guppies and one molly fry from a seller on Gumtree. It got me wondering whether such young fish can actually carry those kinds of parasites in some way?

Mmm, tricky as a rule I quarantine and deworm every fish I buy. From experience, parasites tend to not be in very young fish but there are always exceptions.

If you get the chance, examine the tank and look at the parents

Alright thank you! I just wish I didn't have so much trouble dissolving Flubendanzole and deworming first my other tank.
