Tiny White Worms
I set up a Fluval EBI about a month back (my first tank in seven years) and have just recently got the water parameters to a near perfect level, just making sure it stays stable before adding in some shrimp.
However, I've noticed that there are some tiny white worm-like creatures slithering about on the glass. A google search comes back with a number of possibilities as to what they are as well as some treatments, although some people say they're normal.
So I thought I'd ask around here, has anyone experienced these guys? Are they normal? Should I be worried? I've not put any food in the tank but I've noticed that the gravel has got a little dirty at the front, perhaps from dead plant matter. As there are no shrimp in I think I'm going to give cleaning the front of a gravel a go but I don't have a gravel cleaner so that might get messy! I do my weekly water changes without fail and everything else seems to be going swimmingly.
Frustratingly they're far too small to photograph. But tiny white worms, about 1-3mm in length with a slightly larger head, wiggling around attached to the glass is fairly accurate.
