  1. Default Wiggly Worms in Water...?


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi everyone,



    Tonight I noticed small, white, thin worm looking things wiggling around in my tank. They look identical to mosquito larva, and move the same way. They couldn't be that though, right? There's plenty of movement in my water. Any thoughts?

    From the sound of it, I would guess hydra. Do they have long whispy things on them and what looks like a T or V shape on one end? It could also be Planaria. Is it possible to get a picture of these guys? I know they are small.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Hydra don't swim much. Planaria is an option. If this is in an aquarium with fish then not feediing the fish for a few days is the best way to get rird of the,

    Here they are. They seem to have infested this tank. It's really obnoxious.

    I would agree with talldutchie, this looks like planara to me
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Yep. Big "eeeeeeeuuuuuwh, yuck!" to some people but rather harmless. In a system with fish it's free live food, in a shrimp-only some trapping would be a good idea. In any aquarium it is usually a sign of overfeeding

    Hmmm. They bother me enough that I'd like to get rid of them. However, it is a shrimp only tank. If fish eat them, what kind of fish should I look for? And, can I have fish in a shrimp tank? Guppies?

    A group of 10 small boraras would probably be at home in that. shrimp safe and since they all think they're Jaws they will hunt planaria.

    Another option is trapping. A test tube, stopper and a piece of small tubing is what you'd need for that. As bad use a small piece of meat or some sinking food.

    You are probably overfeeding, have you thought about that?
