Absolutely get them treated..multiple times! WC Gonyosoma have some of the highest parasite loads going. They also have a well-deserved reputation for being "heart breakers". Often they will start off doing very well and can crash and roll in a matter of days w/no apparent reason. I bred them for years and just recently got back into them and have eggs due w/in a couple of weeks. All mine are cb and they fare far better. Utilize loads of perches and fake greenery for hiding and their secretive nature.

Keep interactions to the absolute minimum. Have hides up high and on the ground. I think people keep them too humid which results in frequent UR issues..which can turn fatal very quickly. Around 50% is good for now..up it when their opaque. If you don't have any Baytril, get some..I guarantee you'll need it eventually. The requisite dosing parameters w/panacur/Flagyl should be undertaken ASAP.

Freight Freitas has a great care sheet..look for his adds..might be a link.
