I have a cichlid tank and just noticed my one of my red jewels acting like it was on its last fin..which it was, and now another one is doing the same thing. so i took a closer look and it appears that theres really tiny white worms all over the tanks glass it took me a moment to realize they were actually moving. Does anyone have a clue what these are or whats going on?

Thankyou for all replies.

They are harmless but they are from overfeeding. Clean your gravel and do a water change. What are your ammonia and nitrite levels. Sounds as your tank is not cycled.

ammonia and nitrites are normal. I have been feeding them a little more lately to try to keep their appetites down because i have about 100 red jewl frey in there.
