No those look more like tubiflex. They are thinner and shorter. Dam petland. Some places get their tubiflex worms confused with blackworms. I remember talking to them about it and swear up and down that tubiflex worms are blackworms. Can you get a size comparison? Like a dime or something?

Looks like tubifex worms to me. I prefer them anyway.

Hahahhahaha. I'll let you wonder for a long time. Just keep guessing.

Crap I hate to be the downer. But leaches, generally speaking mean its been collected from a wild source. Put an air stone in it and keep the temperature low to keep the worms alive. Just for a few days to see if theres any other hitchhikers in it.

lmao! hahahahha well played.

Nah the larger worms actually look more like blackworms. So you might be lucky with a 2 for 1 special. But yeah when you get a chance to separate them I can give you a better ID.

Well then, it appear I was mistaken. I've never seen Tubeiflex worms before.
Was all that for $2.99? It seems like alot!

For the people who went with me on the trip to NJ....when I got the plants from Fishtown USA...either the foxtail or the HC was full of (now I know what it is based on the past few posts) leaches!!!

Meowkitty, did you rinse out your plants before putting in your tank?!?

Kashi cereal,

show me a pic of your finger in the worms and I'll get you a 5 or 10 gallon tank. Or another bubble tea

but your finger has to touch the bottom of the container. LOL
