  1. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi everyone! Recently I noticed quite a few hydra in my 4.5 gallon and even though I've been trying to scrape them all off they seem to keep coming back. Last night I also noticed a white worm that was a lot wider than my normal detritus worms wiggling through the substrate which I'm worried...
  2. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I currently have three tanks. One Aqueon Shrimp tank with yellow shrimp and a couple of nerite snails, one Fluval EBI Shrimp tank with a couple of nerite snails, and a 8 gallon tank I'm using as a medical tank for new plants before planting them into the other tanks Currently, the Aqueon and...
  3. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi Everyone, I have been battling a planaria infestation in my tank for quite a while now and I am going the fenbendazole route to hopefully get rid of them. I have moved my nerite snails to another planted tank as I have been using Planaria Zero to treat the planaria infestation (without much...
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hello all, I've been reading through the forums for about a year and haven't found a definitive answer for this. I have a dirted 5g shrimp tank with a Planaria problem and I'm thinking about dosing with Fenbendazole to help keep my shrimp and MTS alive (I've already lost a yellow rabbit snail)...
  5. General Planted Tank Discussion
    Hi all, I recently came down with an outbreak of planaria or rhabadocoela worms in my new planted tank. They are still small in size, but growing in numbers, and tend to come out when the lights are off/the tank is dark. There seem to be hundreds. I have a "low tech" 5 gal Fluval Spec V with...

    We've got worms in our tank and I can't tell if they are planaria or rhabdocoela. We definitely have hydra and we plan on having breeding shrimp, so we're going to dose dewormer in a few days anyway, but I still want to know what these are. They're too small for me to see whether they have a...

    Got these things in my tank. Fast movers. They move super fast in spurts. Tiny. About the ¼ of the size of a BB. Slugs. Two types. Black slugs and white slugs. Here’s videos. In a cup In my 5 gallon bucket. 1st 15 seconds you can see it. Black slugs...
  8. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Ive recently started to notice these tiny white worms in my substrate. Do you think this is planaria. If not, what do you think it is and how should I get rid of it? https://imgur.com/gallery/tf9pz2C

    Found this hitchhiker on some plants I ordered. Anyone know what it is? Thanks
  10. Low Tech Forum
    5 months into my 120cm long & shallow low tech planted, planaria seems to be picking up a bit. it's currently not a huge problem and i've been feeding 20% less than usual for a months now. but i'd still like to take preemptive measure if possible. since they bury themselves in the substrate most...
  11. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I have some hydra in my tank which I want to get rid of. Loads of people say that Genchem No-Planaria will kill the hydra. Some people say it will affect the fish and others say it won't. Anyone ever used it with fish?
  12. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    This is my first time owning Cherry Red Shrimp, and it's been a month since I got 5 shrimp for a 5.5 gallon. One of the females was already berried so now I also have a bunch of shrimplets. Also don't worry about too few shrimp, I plan to get a few more shrimp once they're in stock. My issue...
  13. The Lounge & Introductions
    Hello everyone, this is the first forum I've ever posted on, so forgive me if I'm being a noob :grin2: I have a 3 gallon with 3 Amano shrimp and a baby female betta, a 5.5 gallon with a male Vieltail betta, and a 10 gallon that has no fish. All my tanks have plants in them: java fern, water...
  14. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have an issue. My tank is small, it's 2.5Gal, but only 1.5Gal is water The largest residents in my tank are my 25 dark blue neocaridinas and my single zebra nerite. I also have about 100 each of bladder and mini ramshorn snails, 250+ limpets(my favorites), 20ish Malaysian Trumpet snails, 40-70...
  15. Tank Journals
    I moved all my male mollies to the pet store except 4 my son wanted to keep. They went with the females in another tank. So all I have are detritus worms and some small white worms. They are happy not to get eaten anymore! Now I have a shrimp tank! I put 2 blue shrim males in my 10 gallon...

    I've been told fissidens doesn't tolerate the "copper treatment" and that also removes the option for keeping shrimp in a copper treated tank. But has anyone used No Planaria in a tank with fissidens? Was the plant effected? Product link...
  17. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    I have a newly set up tank and recently read about the No-Planaria product available from Green Leaf Aquariums. It looks like many people have had this successfully wipe out unwanted snails. I am interested in using this, but plan on adding some of my golden rabbit snails to this tank from...

    Or red... bodied? I found a few red planaria ganging up on one of my adult male shrimp. The shrimp is paralyzed, and I don't know if he will recover, but I have moved him into his own container and dosed the tank with fenbendazole. Turns out, a lot of my mysterious shrimp deaths are probably...

    Howdy everyone, shrimp newbie and first-time poster here. The information on this forum has been so helpful to us, my hubby and I would like to contribute our observations as well. Problem: We have a 6 gal tank (0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, 10-20 nitrate, 6.4 pH) with cherry shrimp, babies, and lots...
  20. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    Hi all, two months ago I treated my 5 gallon shrimp tank with fenbendazole to overcome a planaria bloom. I knew from reading up other forum posts on this site that fenbendazole is toxic to nerite snails, so I removed them into a separate holding bowl for them to wait in until it was safe for...
