Yes, don't do large water changes, If no external injury or disease is visible you can try giving paraxin (capsule) commonly available at medical store, you can mix 1capsule (500mg) in water & add to your tank.

This is how I de-worm my fishes.

I get a metronidazole and in the night I break the capsule, mix half of it in water and soak the pellets, then feed the pellets to the fishes.
Same operation next day morning.

Then one day I dont feed them anything, and on the very next day I do a 50% water change and feed them normal :)
