    I'm not throwing anything out yet. However, I will throw out any plants that look at least a little dead...or at least throw the part out that looks a little dead.

    Also vacuuming all of my Eco Complete a LOT....and scrubbing the glass a LOT.

    Oh, I've scrubbed and drained the tank about 3 or 4 times now. ;)

    I'm going to fill it back up and then go through my plants now. They're sitting in a container of water atm. I should probably scrub my driftwood a little as well.

    Okay. Overhaul is now complete. Here's what it looks like now...



    I probably threw away WAY MORE than I should have, but I was just on a roll, I reckon. I now have 20 little ludwiga plants - most of which were "babies" on the bigger plants. Some are the top portions that looked nicer than the bottom portions of the larger plants. I chopped one type of plant at the base and planted the base and roots that were attached (no leaves were left). I trimmed the wisteria WAY back. As well as another plant.

    I scrubbed the walls A LOT. And changed the water about 3 or 4 times. I vacuumed the Eco Complete a lot as well.

    Here are my water readings (I tested again since I redid everything).

    Ammonia: 0ppm (I've added some to bump it up)
    NitrItes: 2.0ppm
    NitrAtes: 20ppm

    No change there, so that's good.

    I'm worn out. G'night!

    Next time dont worry, worms=good. They are always in the aquariums, but usually the fish eat them. Next time just relax, and wait for some answers on here.
    You are probably going to get them again, so just be ready. They wont eat your eye balls out while your sleeping or anything.

    Are they supposed to be fat, ugly worms that crawl into shrimp? :-/ I think that's what freaked me out the most. I almost got sick to my stomach when that video came on, and I snapped. Sorry. It probably is good that I cleaned up though - it was getting pretty gross in there. However, I agree. I freaked out a little. But now I can sleep without fear of losing my eyes. ;)

    It kind of reminds me when you look up some signs when your sick, and most of them have to due with death, but in reality its just a common cold. Its same with these worms, they are basically a little clean up crew because there are no fish to eat them. But if you feel better, its your choice. Just be ready for them to come back..
