    Default Worms? in frog tank

    0 Not allowed!
    There are what appear to be worms in the frog tank. About 1/4 inch long, narrow like the weight of fishing line, sort of white in color.
    I saw a few yesterday on top of the water and scooped them off. I just saw 1 on the glass and watched it move. I'm sure there are more. I'm going to do a big water change. Ideas about where these worms came from? And should I be concerned?

    My guess would be some sort of nematode, see the description and causes here

    Keep in mind, there are about 25,000 described, so that pic in the first link may not match what you are seeing....they live in many different environments, not just our tanks

    They crop up in an aquarium that's overfed, or not properly maintained, most of the time.

    Nano fish love them, I had them in the 10G a while back, before I stocked it

    They're a harmless nuisance, if they are what you have, most of the time, but some can be parasitic
