|HD Blazingwolf||it sounds like the tiny nematodes i got with floating plants or dry'd flake food that sometimes survive as cysts in. the heplessly wiggle i nthe water column searching for a dark place. and a realllllyyy small baby tetra in there that isn't big enough to eat shrimp and watch it FEAST on the little things. they are otherwise harmless|

They're likely harmless nematodes if they're swimming like that. They're common in new tank setups.
Judging by this thread, you only started your tank a couple weeks ago.
Since you brought up having CRS in your tank, here's hoping you have actually allowed it to cycle.

The better you can describe them, the better chance you have of getting help. Otherwise, the best anyone can do is throw out the names of a bunch of different worms, and you'll have to look them all up to figure out if any might match what you have if you.

I found my tank also got small little white worms, about the diameter of a hair and up to 1/2" long. They would attempt to swim like little white snakes. Once the fish noticed them, they eat them right up. Now, the fish almost fight over them. I've seen fish sprint 6" inches to eat one of these guys.
So, do fish eat the worms?

|radioman||A picture would help. Possibly nematodes.|

|jakevwapp84||the duckweed is from an aquarium but the worms dont look like larvea and they keep spinning around what else could they be|

|reddhawkk||Where did the duckweed come from? Was it a source from outside, like a pond? If so, they could be mosquito larvae which fish really like.|
