I have worms.
Well, not me, but the 10 gallon tote that I'm keeping my anubias and java ferns in while I'm waiting for the driftwood to sink.
By reading descriptions, they could be nematodes. They are long and thin, like whitish threads, some up to 1 to 1.5 inches, and when disturbed look like sperm swimming around.
I wouldn't mind them if they would n't be a threat to my fish, but I have seen some nasty images of fish with internal worms.
I know I could just refrain from using the plants in this bucket, but I really want to use them.
Some ferns and mosses arrived almost dead and shortly after I placed these new bits in the tub, I saw the worms.
How can I get rid of these things?
