I'm pretty sure Indian dwarf puffers are smaller (than the other dwarf puffers) and freshwater, whereas the others are brackish water.

Best to get black worms on the day of the delivery, otherwise they are 'eweeww' cuz water never gets changed for them....

The last time I bought live blackworms from the store, I found a lot of cool leeches mixed in with them. Whoever thinks they're just buying blackworms, be careful. =x

Yes I did feed then to my fish. Lol

But afterwards, I had a fleeting thought if it was parasitic, going to lay eggs in the fish and come out to infect more fish in like aliens vs. predators. XD

Oh and about getting rid of them. No way to specifically target them without blackworm casualties too.

leeches aren't food ? I never separate anything , everything gets eaten, but I got some big and hungry fish.

Blackworms tend to be larger and thicker. tubies are significantly smaller in diameter... maybe you have bloodworms

they're like really thin and miniature earthworm looking.... Definitely not bloodworms. I've seen those in person. I'll take a photo when I get home D:

im guessing bloodworms... If you went to petland, they usually stock live brine shrimp, black and blood worms... unless their policy changed.
